The Mobile Electronics Retailers Association (MERA), in continued preparation of the upcoming KnowledgeFest at the Gaylord Texan near Dallas August 18-21, has announced the entertainment for the show’s “KnowledgeFest Live!” networking event. Dave Whiteman and the Love Chocolates will entertain attendees courtesy of SiriusXM and Voxx International at the Glass Cactus Club on the evening of August 20.
A 13-member, 11-piece ensemble, Dave Whiteman and the Love Chocolates is one of the most entertaining bands in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. Since 2001 the band has created a festive party atmosphere for countless gatherings and venues, playing a popular mix of Top 40, R&B, Latin and dance music in addition to many classics. The band’s versatility has made it a hit with groups of different ages and musical tastes.
Sony, which sponsored the KnowledgeFest Live! event last year, is again the event’s overall sponsor and will facilitate food and beverages.
KnowledgeFest Live! allows retailers, vendors and other industry professionals to come together in a relaxed atmosphere to catch up on friendships, discuss ideas or simply enjoy a night of food, drinks and music. Buses shuttle attendees to and from the Gaylord Texan hotel nearby.
“It’s perfectly fitting to have three companies known for providing entertaining content to be the sponsors for a night of food and fun with a vibrant group of musicians and performers,” said Chris Cook, MERA president. “We appreciate the participation of SiriusXM, Voxx International and Sony for creating a night to kick back with friends and colleagues within the education-intensive show and conference.”
