The brainchild of James Ffrench, Trail Blazing Events officially started in the summer of 2015 on the Hudson River, in upstate NY. Before incorporating, he was planning and promoting underground music events at private locations for years. Since 2015 he has assembled a talented team of professionals and has been hosting small/medium sized intimate music events in the New Paltz / Poughkeepsie area of upstate NY. TBE's main focus has been supporting local musicians and being able to bring a NYC style of entertainment to the Hudson Valley, through public or private events.
In 2016, TBE kept bringing great music to the Hudson Valley, but began to branch out. In the Summer of 2016 the organization began taking on production services for music festivals on the east coast. Some of the successful events were: Mazzstock (NY), then Summer Dance (OH), the 19th annual Harvest Fest (NY). During that festival season we also were privileged to help Catskill Chill as one of the production teams, and were used to help open up their new location in Pennsylvania.
Seeing a need in the market, TBE began providing its professional services for private events. This year we have twice as many festivals and public shows planned than ever before! We’ve been growing at an impressive rate and are on the cutting edge of every new technology / technique the production or music industry has to offer. Our main goal is professionalism, reliability, constant improvement and most of all putting on an amazing event.
No matter what your needs, when you work with TBE you’re ensuring that your special event will be a success.
