Connie DeNave Connie DeNave wrangled her way to the top of the music-PR industry with little more than passion and pluck and, in the process, became the top image-maker and brand-builder for the biggest names in music and Hollywood.

Connie will share anecdotes from her memoir, The Image Maker: Shattering Rock and Roll’s Glass Ceiling, and tell us about the “real people” behind the marquee-name personas with whom she worked. Her clients were a veritable Who’s Who of show business, including The Rolling Stones, Dion, Bobby Darin, Connie Francis, Sam Cooke, Andy Warhol, Nat King Cole, The Everly Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Lesley Gore, The Moody Blues, The Dave Clark Five, The Young Rascals, Tommy James and The Shondells, The Temptations, Martha and The Vandellas, Andy Williams, Judy Garland, Burt Reynolds, Clint Eastwood—and hundreds upon hundreds more.

George Bugatti's journey from a 5 yr old Brooklyn boy mesmerized by a piano in Macy's to a revered performer is a tale of resilience and artistry. Overcoming a severe hand injury, Bugatti's relentless dedication led him from the High School of Performing Arts to NYU, and eventually to dazzling stages nationwide including Bellagio,Las Vega and Carnegie Hall. Renowned for blending the Great American Songbook with Broadway and pop classics, he has collaborated with legends; Tony Bennett, Steve Allen and Paul Anka. Bugatti's ability to captivate and charm, from intimate piano bars to grand concert halls, marks him as a distinguished figure in music.
