A Holiday Party by Class Appraisal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House is a Winning Combination!

In 2010, legislation known as The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, was enacted that required mortgage lenders to abide by “Appraisal Independence Requirements” (AIR). As a result, Class Appraisal, a Nationwide Appraisal Management Company, was formed by a team of industry veterans to service the ever changing needs of the mortgage and valuation industry.

We had the pleasure of playing for Class Appraisal’s holiday party at Ruth Chris’ Steak House in Troy this holiday season.  This is the second time we’ve been invited to be a part of this veteran company’s end of the year party.  We had a delightful time playing Christmas music, today’s hits and several requests from guests.  Susan Stirling orchestrated an elegant night for her colleagues and we’re very appreciative of her invitation to be a part  of the celebration.  We extend our best wishes for their continued success in the New Year.

Importance of a Corporate Christmas Party Is More than a Social Event

We’ve had the pleasure of performing for several corporate Christmas parties this holiday season.  Often regarded as the biggest social event in the calendar, the Christmas party is eagerly anticipated by clients and colleagues alike. But with pockets being pinched and budgets taking a battering, can you really justify the expense on such an elaborate affair?

Both Bright House Network and Class Appeal of Birmingham decided the cost was worth the benefits.  Beyond a “jolly good time”, the Christmas party encourages management and staff to mingle outside of a work setting, in turn boasting morale.  It’s a thank you from management to the staff of all their hard work throughout the year. Entertaining your staff at Christmas will see them return the favor in hard work, loyalty and motivation for 2016. It provides an excellent opportunity to reiterate and deliver key company messages, recognition awards and plans for the year ahead. Christmas parties have even been shown to impact staff retention by giving them an event to remember with memories that will be talked about for years to come.

We had a blast playing all of our classic rock, contemporary and Beatle selections for both parties.  Being able to fill personal requests or see guests’ faces light up when they recognize their favorite songs makes the evening fun for us as well.  We look forward to next December and hope to be back with the fine people of Bright House and Class Appeal for the 2016 Christmas Party!
