Imagine an event where make-up artists wait in the restrooms to refresh your “look,” where champagne flows like water, where the entrances and exits of A-list celebrities are choreographed to the second by dead-serious backstage workers with “walkies,” and where Oprah Winfrey personally compliments you on your necklace.

Goers, a 2013 graduate of the Music Industry program with an emphasis in business, works full-time for The Teahouse Company in Los Angeles. Teahouse represents and manages six different bands, hired out for special events. The event described above was the Golden Globes.
