about the collective.

The Musicians Collective was started in 2019 by veteran music industry lead vocalist, songwriter, and producer Chris Pinnella (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) to fill a specific void within the event entertainment industry:

 

By working closely with each client and/or event planner to put together a fully customizable group of musicians, music arrangements, sound and lighting design + rentals, and more.

 

The Collective is detail oriented and will be available to you for creative meetings, site visits, and consults.  Not only will Chris work with you and your sound and lighting hire, he can also provide full backline support, sound and lighting design if needed. He will also scout out talent from his roster of over 500+ musicians and singers and put together a one of a kind group for your next event.

Having 20+ years in the entertainment industry both as a performer and producer, Chris's roster of talent has shared the stage with some of music's biggest acts: Taylor Swift, The Who, Rhianna, Ariana Grande, Styx, Bruce Springsteen, Billie Eilish, Bon Jovi, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Diddy, Lady Gaga, and many more.

Let The Musicians Collective be your go to music specialists whether a special holiday party for your company, your wedding day, private house party, golf or country club event, fundraising gala, or really anything you can dream up.

We hired Chris to sing for one of our largest events of the year and our expectations were exceeded from day one. He worked with us to brainstorm ideas, meet us onsite and, when it came time to execute those ideas, Chris delivered a group of handpicked musicians and singers specifically tailored to the evening we had envisioned. In addition, he arranged the music, rehearsed the musicians, staged them and worked closely with our sound and lighting company to ensure every technical detail was ironed out as well. As a result, his performance, among other aspects that evening awarded us the International Live Events Association's "Best Entertainment Production" award for 2019.

Stage Setup

The feedback we have gotten has lifted you to "superstar" status -- who is this man, why do I not know him, his voice is amazing, and this group, and I explain, it's not a group, it's a customized ensemble you managed, selected, and produced which is ridiculously impressive. People raved and raved for days, comments like wedding of the year, even "wedding of the century", and please pass on to the band and other vocalists - making people so very happy, so energized, is a gift and everyone, without exception cited the music being the driving force. I am a vocal perfectionist so I know that every note takes time and practice - the end result is not where we start when one obtains a play list or sheet music and brings them to life. Rock solid musicians too even when AJ decided to play air guitar.
