The 5th Dimension
The three men — Billy Davis, Jr., Ron Townson and Lamonte McLemore grew up together in St. Louis, Missouri, each going in separate directions in their teens; all ended up in Los Angeles with hopes of making the big time.
Billy, in several gospel and soul groups, studied at Washington Tech. He opened his own nightclub, eventually ending up in Los Angeles, hoping to sign with Motown’s West Coast recording company. Lamonte went into professional baseball as well as photography only to discover his love for singing while in the Navy. Ron sang opera from an early age. He graduated from Lincoln University, and left for Los Angeles with aspirations in singing.
Lamonte McLemore met beauty contestant winner Marilyn McCoo while photographing her during the Miss Bronze Talent Award. Marilyn was born in New Jersey and grew up in Los Angeles. She always had a desire to go into the entertainment business, but her parents wanted her to finish school. She graduated from UCLA and accepted Lamonte’s offer to join the group he was forming.
With Billy experienced in gospel and rhythm and blues, Ron opera and Lamonte jazz, Marilyn jazz and pop, they needed another female member to complete their well-rounded vocal sound.
While photographing Florence LaRue, the winner of the Miss Bronze Talent Award the year after Marilyn won, McLemore decided to ask her to join the group he was forming. At first she didn’t accept the offer because she had graduated from Cal State University in Los Angeles and had just started teaching. Both she and Marilyn joined the group initially as a hobby, with McCoo wanting a solo singing career and LaRue still dreaming of a career in acting.
In 1965, the quintet, with their varied vocal backgrounds, named their group The Versatiles. They put together a demo tape and sent Lamonte to Detroit to see Berry Gordy at Motown Records. Gordy listened to the demo tape and was impressed with their sound but didn’t hear chart hits with the songs. He asked McLemore to return with more songs for him to hear. Lamonte returned home and the group continued to sing at local L.A. clubs.
Their future manager, Marc Gordon, would soon help change their lives. He was a director of West Coast Operations at Motown Records. Gordon was in the process of leaving Motown when he heard The Versatiles and offered to manage them. They recorded You’re Good Enough For Me /Bye Bye Baby, both co-written by Marc Gordon on the Bronco label. It wasn’t until Gordon introduced the group to Johnny Rivers, who was starting Soul City Records, that something exciting was about to happen in music.
Johnny Rivers instantly liked their sound and decided to produce them. He wanted them to change their outdated group name and look, so The 5th Dimension was the new name and with their new "mod" outfits, they were ready. The first single Rivers produced, I’ll Be Lovin’ You Forever/Train Keep On Movin’, in 1966, didn’t create much excitement with radio listeners. The follow-up single the next year, written by John Phillips was called Go Where You Wanna Go. Phillips' group, the Mamas and Papas also recorded this single. It was The 5th Dimension who took the song up Billboard’s Top 20, peaking at #16.
They agreed to hear some songs by a new songwriter named Jimmy Webb, who was under contract with Rivers. Webb was at the piano playing a song he had written about a beautiful balloon. The group loved the song, Up Up & Away, and it was released in February of 1967. An album with the same title was also released. The song entered the Top 10 and peaked at #7, staying on the Top 40 for 10 weeks, bringing this quintet to fame. The song was awarded Best Performance By A Vocal Group, Best Contemporary Group Performance, Best Contemporary Single, Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year at the Grammy Awards. The album went Gold.
With the popularity of Webb’s composition, Up Up & Away, the group eagerly agreed to team up with him on their second LP, The Magic Garden, later retitled, The Worst That Could Happen. Jimmy Webb wrote all but one song on that album. Webb was going through a tough period in his personal life and his girlfriend at the time, Susan, was the inspiration for these songs. It was almost like a storybook as one song was beautifully connected to the next. Although none of these songs topped the charts, it is considered to be one of the finest of all their albums. Paper Cup (1967) and Carpet Man (1968) both entered the Top 40.
They were lucky to have been connected with so many talented songwriters. Their third album was written in part by the late Laura Nyro. Billy said their first meeting with Nyro was at a hotel where they were all staying. Her room was right above theirs and they could hear her singing. The group called her up and they got together.
It was actually Bones Howe, their producer, who heard a hit with Laura’s song — Stoned Soul Picnic. Howe said, "After The Magic Garden we were looking for a piece of material that would reflect what The 5th Dimension was. I came across a song on a demo tape that David Geffen had taken to RCA, a song written by Laura Nyro called Stoned Soul Picnic. I told David that I wanted to cut it with The 5th, but he said we couldn’t because Nyro was going to cut it on her album. But if they didn’t release it as a single, he said it’s fair game. So the album came out, and the company chose Eli’s Coming as the single. I had a test pressing of the album and rushed it to the group and said, 'This is gonna be your first million-selling single. ' They loved the song, and we went in and did the record in three days. And of course, it was their first million-selling single." It was in May 1968 when Stoned Soul Picnic was released and entered the Top 10, arriving at #3 on Billboard and remaining on the Top 40 for 12 weeks. Howe said, "They are an incomparable combination of talent, energy, and personal warmth. It’s a genuine pleasure to work with them."
Frank Sinatra presented the group with a million-selling award for Stoned Soul Picnic at Caesar’s Palace. The single eventually sold over two million copies. Sinatra said, "Without a doubt the freshest, most musical, most capable group in today’s bag." Another Nyro composition, Sweet Blindness, was released a few months later, peaking at #13 and staying on the Top 40 for 6 weeks.
In 1969 the musical Hair was on Broadway. It was interesting how they ended up recording Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In. Florence said, "It was a real fluke. We were performing in New York City and Billy lost his wallet in a taxi. The man who returned it said he had written some music for a play and he invited us to see it. The play of course was Hair. Well we heard Aquarius and we all just looked at each other and said ‘We’ve got to sing this song. It’s great.'" It was producer Howe who suggested splicing Aquarius together with lyrics from another number in the musical which became Let The Sunshine In. "We recorded that song in Las Vegas, in this small studio," says LaRue. "Our voices were all tired, we’d been performing there for over a month. It was the quickest thing we ever recorded and it was one of our biggest hits."
Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In remained in the #1 spot on Billboard for 6 straight weeks and remained on the Top 40 for 16 weeks. Both the single and album Age Of Aquarius went Gold and received two Grammy Awards. The song eventually sold over two million copies. The original song was over 7 minutes long and it was Bill Drake of a Los Angeles radio station who suggested the song needed to be shortened to about 3 minutes; so Howe released 2 versions, one just over 3 minutes and one under 3 minutes.
Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In was only the beginning of their album Age Of Aquarius. Bones Howe told Marilyn about this song that went, "Bill, I love you so, I always will. Won’t you marry me, Bill, etc. So Howe told Marilyn, 'It’d be really funny if you did this song as a joke on the album.' Marilyn and Billy were still courting; she wanted to get married and Billy was dragging his feet. So she did it, and after the album came out I got a call from a guy at a record company who said that a station in San Diego had jumped on the song and that we should release it as a single."
In September of 1969, Wedding Bell Blues, a Nyro composition, was released and soared to the top of the charts, remaining in the Top 40 for 14 weeks. Workin’ On A Groovy Thing co-written by Neil Sedaka peaked at #20 in 1969 and Blowing Away, another Laura Nyro composition, peaked at #21 in 1970.
In 1969, Florence LaRue married their manager, Marc Gordon, high above the Century Plaza Hotel in a hot air balloon. That same year Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. married.
By this time the group was touring all over the world seven-and-a-half months out of the year. They spent 3 months recording songs for their album, leaving them only about 6 weeks for a needed vacation. They were invited to appear on all the top television programs, which included The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, The John Davidson Show, The Flip Wilson Show, The Bobby Sherman Show, American Bandstand, Dinah Shore and Hollywood Palace. Ed Sullivan has said, "One of the classiest groups we’ve ever had on the show. Their class is with a Capital C."
The group were also on Frank Sinatra’s, Woody Allen’s and Burt Bacharach’s television specials. They were also in their own television musical special — The 5th Dimension: An Odyssey In The Cosmic Universe Of Peter Max, which aired in May of 1970. That same year they appeared at Expo’ 70 in Tokyo. They were selected as "Funding Artists" of the prestigious John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts in Washington. When Princess Grace of Monaco returned to Hollywood for the Motion Picture and Television Relief Fund Gala in Los Angeles at the Music Center, it was The 5th Dimension who headlined the event. They were awarded the Friar’s Club First Annual Gold Medallion Award for Exceptional Contributions within the music industry. Letters and telegrams with congratulations were sent from Frank Sinatra, Hubert Humphrey, New York City Mayor John Lindsay, Dean Martin, and Gregory Peck, to name a few.
The group were the toast of the town. Receiving glowing reviews from critics and fellow entertainers, they were on top of the world. Lou Rawls said, "They’re the greatest thing to hit the scene in the past 5 years! They have a whole new concept within the music industry." Sammy Davis, Jr. described the group as "Absolutely fantastic! The 5th Dimension really sock it to you!" Phyllis Diller had a few words to say, "I ADORE The 5th Dimension!" Robert Hilburn, Los Angeles Times music critic, wrote about The 5th Dimension after their concert at the Greek Theater in the early 70’s, "Despite such glamorous competition as Burt Bacharach, Andy Williams and the Temptations, The 5th Dimension gave by far the most entertaining show of the young Greek Theater season Monday night. It was in a word, superb."
Two hit albums were released in 1969. The single, The Girl’s Song which featured Florence and Marilyn on lead was climbing the charts and was included on the Greatest Hits album. This album went Gold. Another album of hits released after that was The July 5th Album.
Their albums continued to sell well. Changing labels, they went with Bell Records headed by Larry Uttal. Their first single from the Bell label was The Declaration, a song not popular with the government, though at a performance which included President Nixon and the Governors of 50 states, they performed The Declaration. Only after Nixon began clapping at the song’s end did the rest of the audience dare applaud this controversial song.
The album, titled Portrait, had 3 songs which entered the Top 40. One was a song co-written by Neil Sedaka, Puppet Man, released in May of 1970 at about the same time Tom Jones’ version hit the air waves. The group's version peaked at #24. The following month they released another Nyro tune called Save The Country which peaked at #27. Stronger songs, This Is Your Life and One Less Bell To Answer, were not selected as August releases because their producer wanted a summer song. So they released On The Beach (In The Summertime) in 1970. In the meantime, a Los Angeles radio station called up Bell Records and said that people were calling his station when he played One Less Bell To Answer and they should really release it as a single. In October of 1970, One Less Bell To Answer, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David was released and flew up to #2, eventually selling over two million copies. Their album also went Gold. The group were guests on the television series with Robert Wagner called It Takes A Thief and both Puppet Man and One Less Bell To Answer were featured on the show.
In March of 1971, they released the single Love’s Lines, Angles & Rhymes which peaked at #19. It was also the title of their album that year which went Gold. That same year the group had their second television special, The 5th Dimension Traveling Sunshine Show. Later that year they released their double Live! LP which was taped in Las Vegas. With McCoo’s success with lead vocals, they released Never My Love in October 1971 which went to #12. In early 1972 they released a McCoo/Davis duet also from the Live! LP, Together Let’s Find Love, peaking at #37. This album went Gold.
In 1972 the group were singing more solo vocals than the harmonies they were initially known for. The best description of the direction of the group was the album titled Individually & Collectively. Marilyn’s solo, (Last Night) I Didn’t Get To Sleep At All, was released in March of 1972 and made the Top 10 arriving at #8 and eventually selling over two million singles. Five months later another McCoo solo, If I Could Reach You, was released reaching #10 on Billboard.
The album Living Together, Growing Together was released in 1973. The LP title was released as a single in February of 1973. It entered the Top 40 arriving at #32. Two other singles were released but failed to chart well. That same year, they decided to release Flashback and the flip side Diggin’ For A Livin’ — neither a song on the album. Flashback was also recorded by Cher but neither charted with the song.
In 1974, Soul & Inspiration was released. This album was created by different producers including Howe, Richard Carson, H.B. Barnum, and John Florez. This marks Bones Howe’s departure from producing the group. This was also the last album the group had on Bell Records.
Their final album with the original five members, Earthbound, was released in 1975 on ABC Records. It’s ironic because they began with composer Jimmy Webb on their first album and were able to work again with him on their final album before Marilyn and Billy left the group to venture in another musical direction. As on the Magic Garden LP, Earthbound’s songs flowed beautifully from song to song only this time there wasn’t a Susan in Webb’s lyrics as on The Magic Garden. Even with strong titles like Magic In My Life and Walk Your Feet In The Sunshine, these singles didn’t chart well.
McCoo and Davis left the group after Earthbound. The 5th Dimension continued with ABC Records and released the single Love Hangover which featured LaRue on lead. It was climbing the charts when Motown Records decided to quickly release Diana Ross’ version that was on her LP. It was clearly a race between The 5th Dimension and Diana Ross. Even the sheet music to the song had both The 5th Dimension and Diana Ross pictured on the cover. Ross won with Love Hangover, taking it to the top of the charts.
Ironically, The 5th Dimension agreed to sign with Motown Records and released the LP Star Dancing. Later the same year they released a follow up album, High On Sunshine.
With several name changes in The 5th Dimension, Florence LaRue and Lamonte McLemore never left the group. Ron Townson left for a little while to form Ron Townson and Wild Honey, but later returned to the group. They starred in the Tony Award musical of Fats Waller’s Ain’t Misbehavin', to glowing reviews. In 1983 they released a concert video called The 5th Dimension: Live At Caesar’s Palace. They have performed for important figures such as President Reagan and President Carter. In 1995, they released a CD, In The House, on Dick Clark's label, Click Records. It features Say (U Love Me) which LaRue co-wrote. It also includes two 5th Dimension songs from the past, Puppet Man and Stoned Soul Picnic done in the newer 5th style.
McCoo was guest on The Home Show and the segment was a tour through McCoo’s and Davis’ home. Marilyn puts it this way, "On the day we were shooting, I was leading (host) Gary Collins through my house and unbeknownst to me, Florence, Ron and Lamonte were sitting in the family room." Billy had secretly arranged a surprise visit from the other members. It had been years since the five of them were all together. Donald Trump saw the reunion and thought it would be interesting to see if they would be open to the idea of a reunion performance for New Year’s Eve at his hotel in Atlantic City. It happened in 1990 with Ron’s response, "It’s been fantastic. It’s like family getting back together again." Billy Davis, Jr. felt, "Getting back together was emotional for me. We did our old hits and put in other ingredients to add a bit of life to the show." A standing-room-only crowd at the event convinced the group to take it on a city to city tour the following year calling themselves, The Original 5th Dimension.
In 1991 The Original 5th Dimension received a Star on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame which is located at the famed Roosevelt Hotel across from Mann’s Chinese Theater.
The 5th Dimension consists of Florence LaRue, Lamonte McLemore, Ron Townson, Greg Walker and Phyllis Battle. Early in 1998, Willie Williams joined The 5th Dimension. They are performing with symphonies, on luxury cruises and all over the world to satisfy their many fans. Their career seems to always be Up Up & Away.

Corporate Entertainment Events
Corporate entertainment events are the lifeblood of any organization. Without giving your employees a fun break every once in a while, they can become unmotivated and listless. To increase productivity or to recognize top achievers, corporate entertainment events are key. At Locolobo events Entertainment , we specialize in booking talent and customizing events to meet your needs.
Corporate Entertainment: Events of a Lifetime
We have a wide variety of entertainers and event ideas that can be tailored to your specific guests. From team building speakers to musicians, DJs and comedians, we will make your exclusive event one that will be remembered for years to come. Contact us today to discuss your requirements, and we will get back to you quickly with ideas for success.

Reading crowds and knowing what activities work for each audience is another area we specialize in. What management thinks will be fun is not necessarily right for your audience. For example, at company picnics, you will need activities for children as well as adults. A black-tie affair has its own entertainment needs. Contact us today and we will get started finding the right entertainment for your next corporate party, outdoor festival, or state fair.

Unique Event Entertainment
Executives are often faced with the seemingly daunting task of securing unique event entertainment. While this job can be delegated to a corporate meeting planner, it is often the VIPs who have the final say. Knowing how important event entertainment is, can help sell you on the idea of budgeting for this necessary investment.
Unique event entertainment is one of the most crucial aspects of events, as it gives attendees a chance to unwind and rejuvenate. It may come in the form of a motivational speaker for a keynote address or a comedian to entertain your board members. Team building and training are also more successful when the information is imparted in a fun way that doesn't seem like learning.
More Information about Unique Event Entertainment
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a broad range of popular speakers who are knowledgeable in their fields and have gained the life experience necessary for success. They are both entertaining and informative, often sharing personal stories that audiences can relate to. Successful speeches are remembered long after attendees return to the office, so let us help you choose the right speaker or unique event entertainment.
We don't only book talent, however; we are also a full-service event management company with a superb track record. So if you'd rather outsource the endless details of event planning than overburden your staff, contact us for a consultation. We can provide you with ideas for successful events, based on our experience with current and previous clients. We have helped many Fortune 500 companies realize the dream of enlightening event audiences with informative entertainment, and we'll do the same for you.
Companies are finally catching on to the notion that VIP events are good PR (public relations). Private parties for your best clients, invitation-only hospitality suites at trade shows, and entertainment for your executive board all leave your guests feeling appreciated. They establish goodwill and encourage future business.
No two VIP events are alike, nor should they be. Event planners are forever searching for ways to make them memorable for their guests. The best event is one that gets talked about long after the event. However, it's not an easy task to make them as good as you want them to be.

We will work with you to find the best talent for your event, whether you want music, comedy, motivational speakers or need to book a band or particular entertainer.

The right theme and tone of your event can make all the difference in how your guests perceive it and whether they have a good time.

Event managers and corporate executives are constantly seeking ways to make their "special events" truly special. You might think that hiring famous performers is way out of your league, but that is not necessarily the case. Talking with a qualified talent agency that has a vast array of experiences hiring celebrities is a definite way to find out.
Whether you regularly host VIP-only events or only produce them on occasion, booking famous performers will pay off in the long run. Name recognition as well as the exceptional talent that is a given with fame will give your guests something to talk about. And there is no better way to make you look good than by people spreading the word to their colleagues.
LocoLobo Corporate Events is a talent agency that can book any famous performer you want. If you don't know your audience's taste in entertainment, or you don't know who you would like to hire, take heed. That is a situation our specialists deal with daily and we will be glad to help you narrow down your choices with regard to performer, program, theme, and budget.
We do not represent any one person so we are able to negotiate with other agents and managers to secure the date and performer for you. In addition to entertainers, we can also book keynote speakers, motivational speakers, lecturers or experts for your next seminar, convention, or trade show. Our services include recommending the best talent for your individual events, negotiating and acheiving your financial goals, researching prospective talent, and arranging a site if you don't already have one. Call us today to learn more.
Famous comedians can add humor and pizzazz to an otherwise dull meeting. They also offer entertainment and comic relief during conferences, when everybody is weary from all-day seminars. Comedy is a great way to impart wisdom as well as to break the ice at business functions. However, many meeting planners fail to utilize this valuable resource.
Famous Comedians and Your Bottom Line
Offering a comedy event with famous comedians is a sure way to keep your attendees feeling energetic and give them a chance to unwind a bit before more seminars. Famous comedians offer name recognition as well as top-quality talent--they wouldn't be famous if they were not exceptional at what they do. When you host a famous entertainer, word of mouth marketing works harder than usual to increase your event's profits.
There are a lot of details to consider before booking comedians. Meeting planners who are already overworked would benefit from the services of a qualified speakers' bureau and meetings management company. At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a huge database of famous comedians, motivational and keynote speakers, bands, authors, and other entertainers at our disposal. We have a long history of satisfied clients and we can book the perfect talent for you, too.We guarantee the best service for booking comedians and other entertainment and speakers. We seek repeat business so we work within your event budget and help you get the best ROI. We're eager to become your event management and talent specialist.
Corporate performances demand attention to detail when planning. Knowing your objectives for your meeting and the corporate entertainment you want will go a long way toward succeeding at the event. Ask yourself why you are holding the meeting and why you want an outside performer to be at your event. Then you will be able to give better direction to your planning committee when it comes time to book talent.
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have helped hundreds of corporations like yours meet their objectives in corporate performances. We save our clients thousands of hours of time researching talent and narrowing down the list to finally choose appropriate talent. Whether you need celebrity acts or regional flavor, we will help you evaluate your needs and make suggestions for the corporate performances that will work for your event.
Impressing VIPs with Corporate Performances
Well-known acts not only entertain, they impress guests as well. If your objective is to reward employees or make an impression on your VIPs, a private concert with a celebrity band is well worth the investment. Music, comedians, or magicians each work best in different situations. Tell us who comprises your audience and describe the theme of purpose of your event. We'll do the rest.
Music For Corporate Events
Music for corporate events is something that executives and meeting planners agonize about unnecessarily. While it's true that the right music sets the mood for a memorable evening, choosing the soundtrack is best left to somebody else. The booking agency you use to find your talent should be able to coordinate musicians, travel, and entertainment programs, or you risk wasting your time with them.
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a long history of helping our corporate clients impress audiences with appropriate music for corporate events. Rather than asking you to choose the type of music that will satisfy an audience that varies in age, taste, and style, we'll instead help you decide on the type of mood you want to create with your music. The result will be a party that impresses all!
Setting the Mood with Music for Corporate Events
For example, whether you want to host a rock concert or provide a backdrop of jazz music for dinner makes a substantial difference in the entertainment we suggest. Aside from singers, bands, and individual musicians, we also suggest DJs for our clients. DJs are not limited to the type of music they play and can offer lots of sound when you are short on space.
Top Quality Music for corporate events does not come without a price tag. Our discerning clients are willing to pay for 5 star national acts that we can acheive for that special event. If you're looking for local flavor to entertain audiences that come from all over the world, local and regional acts are also available. Allow LocoLobo Corporate Events to be your partner in showcasing musical entertainment at your next large-scale corporate event.
It's no secret. Famous entertainers raise attendance and bring in the big bucks while providing attendees with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be in the same room with their favorite celebrities. Before you call LocoLobo Corporate Events to book your talent, evaluate your goals for your meeting and the results you want to achieve.
Think about the issues that are facing your industry and how a keynote speaker, musician, or comedian can help your audience overcome them. You may or may not really need outside speakers or famous entertainers. Your in-house people might be better at dealing with the challenges facing your industry. If you have a low budget, by all means, inside people are the best.
What Famous Entertainers Do for Meetings
Of course, if there are difficulties that need to be addressed, outside speakers and famous entertainers can offer objectivity and ease the blow of delivering bad news so that insiders can work on the issues. For example, if your company is going through reorganization, you might hire speakers to talk about team stress and overcoming adversity. A comedian will take the edge off the seriousness of your meeting and help put everybody in a more relaxed mood.
Hiring famous entertainers can turn your ho-hum meeting into a unique chance to meet a celebrity in a cozy setting. It not only impresses your guests, but will also send a message that your company is financially stable. When a famous performer appears at your event, it gives your company an air of significance. When you are ready to book a famous act for your corporate party, contact us at LocoLobo Corporate Events.
VIP entertainment makes your guests comfortable and adds a sense of lightness to your events. After a long day of intensive seminars or a grueling day on their feet at your trade show booth, attendees will appreciate being treated to a special VIP entertainment event. Magicians, comedians, and even actors appeal to a wide variety of people and help break the ice at networking events.
LocoLobo Corporate Events specializes in bringing the best VIP entertainment to your corporate event. A relaxing atmosphere for travelers will make all the difference at your function, particularly if people are coming from long distances. They might not know other people so entertainment can make them feel included and capture their attention.
With our Corporate Event unique ingenuity, your VIP events will never be boring. We provide interesting entertainment that is creative and fun for all your guests, whether your crowd is large or small. Interactive performers like comedians or special event entertainment, keep your guests participating and draw them into the event. When they participate, they'll remember the originality of the performance long after it's over.
VIP Entertainment Generates Buzz for your Company
VIP entertainment from our Corporate Events company also gives you great publicity and helps generate buzz. Host a function before a trade show to get people talking all over the trade show floor. They'll repeat your company name many times over as they retell their stories again and again. Spend the time choosing unique entertainment to keep your event in the front of everybody's minds and keep them returning for more.
Good convention entertainment can make or break your convention and music really brings a crowd together. Knowing which type of music is best for your audience is not simple. It's better to decide instead on a particular mood, such as dancing, dinner music, or soothing classical music. Music can be the focal point of an event such as a concert or it can provide a background for mingling at a cocktail party.
