About This Company

Essence Entertainment does so much more than simply hire the musicians to perform at your special event. People keep going back to them for the unique way they service their clients, as they handle all aspects of the engagement.

In business for over 30 years, Essence Entertainment is the largest agency in Orange County and an elite provider of live music and entertainment throughout Southern California. You’ll find them on the Preferred Vendor List for many venues, including the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel and Marina Del Rey, The St. Regis Monarch Beach, and the Segerstrom Center for The Performing Arts, Costa Mesa. Executive Talent Manager Mike Steffens has been with the company since 1991, and is still as excited about what he does today as he was when he joined. He has many years of experience as a producer for shows at major theme parks like Disneyland, and has even taken productions on tour internationally.

Mike is so personable that even the most nervous brides will feel comfortable working with him. He’s also a stickler for details and organization, and spends a lot of time with the client with regards to planning: music requests, timeline and sequence of events, etc. “We like to give our clients a picture of how things will actually unfold,” explains Mike. “Our discussion helps them to crystallize how they see it all coming together. Then we can bring their vision into being.”

The entertainers Essence Entertainment represents are consummate professionals, able to control the flow of the event and address any issues that come up spontaneously. “Most of our acts have been referred to us from industry professionals,” Mike explains, “and have proven themselves to be not only talented, but dependable and flexible as well.” The Essence Entertainment roster includes live bands of every style, DJs, classical and jazz ensembles, and theme & novelty entertainment. “Quite simply, we have chosen to represent the best in both talent and personality.”

“The standards we have here are really the highest,” says Mike. “Providing the best customer service and entertainment—really taking a personal interest from beginning to end—is what we’re all about.”
