The 01 is a fully customizable and scalable entertainment act that utilizes a process called The Psychology of the Guest to create transcendent experiences that guests will remember eternally. Unlike the typical DJ and (MC) or band, The 01 goes the extra mile, ranging from a truly personalized music selection process to the layout/design of the room and stage, to creating a customized event flow to increase tangible returns on investments in other vendors. The psychological process delves into connecting people and moments that make an event truly transcendent; why will a bridesmaid remember this wedding over the other 10 she’s going to this year? What emotional connection or motivation is that employee leaving this conference with?
Lazarus Stark launched The 01 when the award-winning frontman and entertainment producer, paired with John Carmichael, one of the best DJs in the events industry to create a truly unique experience around empathy and understanding of all perspectives, emotions and potential pitfalls. The ensemble combines a DJ with live performance, since many clients have been battling over the band vs DJ issue and many want the versatility of a DJ, but the value and impact of live performance.
Lazarus states, “We are being entrusted to tell the story of each couple and we get one chance to get it perfect. There’s no “edit in post” with live entertainment in a room full of phones set to video. Being able to build relationships with our clients allows us to truly create the soundtrack of their lives together and craft that story to evoke emotions intentionally to create memories.”
On a mission to deliver world-class memories and emotional impact to social and corporate events, galas, conferences, celebrations and parties, The 01 starts with a DJ and a frontman and scales up with musicians, dancers, video, lighting, effects, etc.
In regards to his journey and craft, John says, “There weren’t videos on how to mix, scratch, or anything back in the day. I learned from the days of vinyl records, so making smooth blends took constant concentration. I bring together a track selection that will transport you back to your favorite moments and in doing so, create new memories that will last a lifetime.”
