Rank Entertainment at Adler Open House

Over five hundred guests filled the Adler Planetarium last night for the esteemed venue’s bi-annual open house. Rank Entertainment was the sole supplier of music for the evening and, well, we nailed it. Upon arrival to the Clark Family Welcome Gallery, guests were greeted by the lilting, summery sounds of of our steel drum player. Moving in to the Cafe Galileo brought forth the subtle grooves of our blues duo while the Solar System featured the funky rhythms of our jazz trio.. It was really a great night of music, people, food and cool explorations of the cosmos at the Adler Planetarium. Thanks to the Adler and Food For Thought for the invite to provide the soundtrack. Please reach out if any of last night’s acts may be of service at your next get together. [Read More]
