“For 20 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gary Musick Productions and Destination Musick City through more than 50 association events throughout my career. From working within budget, to flawless on-site execution, to creativity that always impresses, there is no other production company I would trust to deliver at the level of GMP & DMC. It’s unheard of in the event business to have the same on-site crew working for the same clients for more than 25 years, but they have found a way to do just that! That kind of employee loyalty speaks volumes to clients, and creates an amazing trust level. We know the Destination Musick City and GMP staff not as a crew, but rather as an extension of our own staff. We travel together, work long hours together, and handle challenges as a team together.
No one does a better job of wowing attendees, staff, and association leadership alike. Whenever my career has taken me into a new organization, it’s been especially rewarding to bring GMP & DMC into the organization as well. The volunteer and staff leadership are always blown away by the level of service and quality of production. I view GMP and Destination Musick City as a strategic partner in our success, not just as a service provider. Our organization knows, without a doubt, that our productions will be impeccable, our business will be done with integrity, our audience will never be disappointed, and our staff will even have fun in very stressful work environments!”

“I don’t even have the words to tell you how much I appreciate what your company does. You always make us at CMT look good. ALWAYS.
Every single person on my team from New York tells me constantly how lucky I am that I have your company in Nashville to work with. We have never had one company that delivered on EVERYTHING promised and more like you guys do. I am blown away! On our most recent event together, the feedback was that it was flawless and completely different from everything else they’ve seen. The corporate sponsor was over the moon. We hit EVERY single marketing need and had not ONE hitch. I don’t ever want to do events without Destination Musick City and Gary Musick Productions as part of my team!”

“I just wanted to thank you for your stellar professionalism for our One Million Strong event in Nashville, Tennessee. It was a complicated and busy day from sound to stage production to entertainment. The event was wonderful. The Destination Musick City and Gary Musick Productions teams executed flawlessly but more importantly our team felt that every step of the way your staff worked with us, listened to us, and with every challenge found solutions together. The best part was you stayed on budget!!! You will always be our first call.”

“Destination Musick City has a second to none team. We wouldn’t be able to execute our Sales Meeting without their attention to detail, budget, and never-ending creativity. Every year our partnership with them grows and continues to improve. They bring us exciting and original ideas that wow our attendees. Journeys not only values them as crucial business partners, but great friends as well. One of the things we appreciate most is their integrity. We could not do our jobs without their team.”

“One of the best conferences ever thanks to Destination Music City! As a small association staff creating an large conference image is hard to do but Heidi from DMC delivered. Her ideas and assistance during our planning period were invaluable. DMC helped with Stage Design, Ballroom Decor and our final evening entertainment. As the event dates approached, she basically became an extension of our staff. Dependable, affordable and beyond Professional. Thanks to Heidi and all of her staff at DMC, our conference ranked as one the best conferences in the past 20 years.
As a meeting planner, if you are planning any entertainment in Nashville, you HAVE to use Heidi at Destination Music City. Her knowledge and patience guided us from named artists to singer songwriters. Along the way, she became an extension of our small staff. Her final recommendation of the Warren Brothers and Josh Kear for a showcase was the perfect ending to our multi-day conference. The guys blew away our attendees with many long term members commenting it was the greatest event they have EVER attended.”

“I want to compliment you about my experience with a very nice employee named Sarah. She was very pleasant to me and our entire group from HOYA. Sarah met me at the airport Sunday and was very welcoming and helpful. She gave me some great recommendations and was a GREAT ambassador not only for your company but for the City of Nashville. Without her help I may not have experienced first hand some of the things Nashville has to offer.
This was my first visit to Nashville and I now plan on returning again based on the people, food and entertainment.
Thank you again!”

“Destination Musick City, and in particular, Susan Raque, was a joy to work with! Susan’s choice of décor pieces captured the group’s vision and fit the space wonderfully. Susan was extremely responsive to all questions and she knew the venue extremely well, which makes my job as a planner so much easier! I look forward to returning to Nashville and being able to work with the Destination Musick City team again!”
