In all my years of producing, planning, hosting and attending events, I’m not sure I’ve ever worked with or witnessed a team as exceptional as Amber and Emily at Karson Butler. They think of every last detail – from early concepting through final execution. Amber helped our team kick off a brand-new touring live fire festival in her hometown of Paso Robles, by sharing her boundless expertise, her vision, her passion for the project and her belief in what it could be; we liked what she did so much that we’ve brought her with us to every city since. We simply feel that nobody else can or will do it as well. Not only are these talented sisters extraordinarily professional, but they are an absolute joy to be around – cool, calm and collected up through the final moments of your event, no matter what may be happening around them. I feel unbelievably lucky to have crossed paths with this duo – they are unequivocally the best of the best.
