A star falls from the sky, lands upon a stage at Powel Crosley Mansion on Valentine’s Day. Your ‘Angel’ sitting next to you, Jon Secada serenades you while the moon’s shadow dances in the distance on Sarasota Bay. A magical, romantic evening is waiting for you on February 14, 2013. Your driver opens the door, beyond the iron gates; a secret garden awaits and you hold the key. Ambient music, angelic voices, sophisticated elegance, experience chic outdoor furniture, soft lighting hanging from the large oak trees, food and drink await your indulgence.
Eager to do special events, the founder of Chilllounge Night; Rainer Scheer set the bar high this Valentine’s Day. ‘Return to Romance’ is a whimsical fairytale like setting old Florida style. Built in 1929 this Mediterranean-Revival style mansion; Powel Crosley Estate will make use of all aspects of the 16 acre property, including the front lawn where the evening begins and eventually ends with romantic sounds by The Lotus Fire (www.worldgypsymusic.com). Playing Flamenco, Tango, Gypsy Swing and Blues, their beats will warm you up for the main concert held on the back lawn over looking the bay.
Concert style seating with will surround the stage, where 3x Grammy Award Singer/Songwriter; Jon Secada (www.jonsecada.com) will seduce you with his soulful melodic voice and songs you’ve more than likely heard and can sing along to. ‘Angel,’ a song Secada will perform is a favorite of Scheer’s. A few months back he sat down with Secada’s agent in Del Ray Beach securing this international superstar. Aside from singing he is well-known for writing songs for musicians like Gloria Estfan, Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin. Come alone, with a group of friends or your partner, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
“An event like this will cost in the range of $50-$100K, with all the vendors and behind the scenes,” Scheer tells me. “We have 25 valet, 12 tents and a stage from US Tent Rental, 10 catering stations from Milan Catering, 15 people to run the bars and the list goes on.” They also rely on sponsors like Hyatt Hotel, BMW Sarasota, Venetian Dental, Peroni, Gold & Diamond Source and so many more. Their labor of love is to provide you with the most elegant evening you can have without having to worry about anything other than the one your with.
