5 Star Music at a 5 Star Resort – 7Pines
Without doubt, our biggest collaboration of 2019 came with a music direction contract we agreed with the 5* 7 Pines Resort Ibiza, on the edge of the spectacular cliffs in Cala Comte, and commanding a cinematic view of Ibiza’s spiritual and iconic neighbouring island Es Vedra. Catering for the world’s elite, 7 Pines Resort went through a 4 year development plan, completely redesigning the cliff-top urbanisation to become a luxurious apart-hotel resort, including fine dining restaurants, an incredible pool area and a complex spa facility.
Of course, we already had a pretty full diary of weddings and private events in our 2019 calendar and so we proposed to find and manage a programme of artists to delight their guests.
We wanted to provide a variety of live performances throughout the week for the guests of 7 Pines and show them some of the island’s best talent.

We kicked off the summer by performing a special 23rd birthday party with Nell, The Lazy Twins and Wiebke upstairs in ‘The View’.
Being the first year of this space at the resort, we went through the summer trying a few different ways to entice guests to spend their evening with us, including a very special sushi night with DJ accompaniment from Ian Kennedy.
Even during the occasional rainy day, there was still beautiful performances put on just inside the foyer including Nell’s delicate version of New Order’s classic “Blue Monday”
Some of our featured artists over the Summer months included jazzy duo Island Thrills, Wiebke Pahrmann, and saxophonists Dominique De Larrard and Tomas Toonders (pictured below).
Our efforts were granted the opportunity to provide a week of corporate publicity events for Lexus, celebrating 30 years of the company. This took place in the resort’s incredible Cone Club restaurant. For this 8 day programme we called upon a trusted crew of Rocky On Percussion and Dominique de Larrard, and also discovered a musician new to us, guitarist and vocalist Yan Adrover.
Each evening of entertainment began with an unforgettable sunset courtesy of Ian and Rocky, with an array of percussion including hang drum, giving the guests that true Ibiza feeling (See videos below).
Afterwards, the exceptional chefs at 7 Pines would offer a top class buffet and one of our artists would perform during dinner followed by a special performance as they brought out the birthday cake! It was a privilege to work for a brand like Lexus, especially in such a beautiful setting.
