The Lou Colombo Tribute Concert Poster and program book for the concert held in Jun, 2017.
The M.S. Dubin Design Studio was approached by members of the Lou Colombo Tribute Concert committee to create marketing materials for the concert that was held on June 13, 2017 at the Barnstable High School Performing Arts Center. We listened to the committee members as they spoke about Lou. We read about his contributions to Jazz and the Cape Cod Music scene. Amazing gentleman. We created multiple versions of the Concert poster, which would be the focal point of all the concert marketing activities. Soon they picked the one shown here. We also played a large part of the creation of the program book. I am happy to report that the book in itself raised approximately $6000. Over a thousand people attended. The Concert itself raised over $14,000 that will all go to the Lou Colombo Music Fund, which is a non-profit managed by the Cape Cod Foundation. This fund distributes money to all the music programs in the schools on Cape Cod and Islands. So happy we were involved in this project. We received a ton of excellent response on the quality of the concert poster.
We recently added an e-commerce solution to the America’s Champs website, making it simple for program registration.
America’s Champs is the Leader in Youth sports Programs. We just worked with AC Director Kevin Burns to discuss simplifying the registration process for his clients signing up for his sports programs. So we added a WooCommerce e-commerce registration to his site. We customized it to his requirements and he was off and running. The site has been exceptionally busy since we added e-commerce, and we are thrilled about it. This site was one that we had built a few years ago. In addition to maintenance, we monitor the analytics and discuss marketing strategy with Mr. Burns. In addition to all the web development work, we designed a new logo and provided new photography of a few of his popular programs like golf and basketball.

The Studio just built a new WordPress website for the Michael Persico Classic Jazz and Swing Orchestra
We were excited to do a from-scratch musical-artist website for Michael Persico Classic Jazz and Swing. He has quite a following on the Cape and throughout New England. The new website is the focal point of all his marketing activities. We helped Mr. Persico with a new logo, and lots of photography – studio and at live shows which we incorporated into his site and on social media. Analytics says he is getting lots of new and returning visitors which we are thrilled about.
A little on Mike and his orchestra..
Singer and Trombonist Michael Persico has been a staple of the Cape jazz community for over thirty years. He is a seasoned innovator whose fresh music sounds are an echo from another era. Showcasing a myriad of New York and Chicago style jazz elements, his soulful classic sound is very retro and brings back memories of the nightclub scene of the fifties and sixties. Persico’s music engages listeners with vintage crooning, and familiar classic jazz rhythms, mixed with some rarely heard tunes. According to Jazz Time Magazine, “Cape Cod’s resident trombonist was born 70 years too late..”
We recently did a complete rebuild of the MWR Kodiak Alaska website for the U.S. Coast Guard.
The Morale, Well-being, and Recreation Division (MWR) of Base Kodiak Alaska requested assistance with a full site rebuild. They are very happy with the result. The site is now organized with intuitive navigation so everything can be found easily and quickly. We added custom graphics including a cleaned up logo and new header imagery. Mr. Rick Carman, Director of MWR Kodiak told us that U.S. Coast Guard Base Kodiak, Alaska, was recognized as the winner of the 2016 National Gold Medal Grand Plaque Award for excellence in park and recreation management for the armed forces during a ceremony in St. Louis, MO. The quality of MWR website was part of the criteria that was considered as part of the competition for this award. We are so happy for them. It does not matter where your business is on the earth, we can build and support your site. It truly is a small world.
