Over the course of 18-plus years, Colby Jones has worked every type of event imaginable: craft shows, weddings, indoor and outdoor festivals, tech conferences, private house parties, political conventions, and everything in-between – a natural fit for the daughter of a singer/songwriter, immersed from day one in the science of putting on a show.
Colby’s extensive experience house managing San Francisco theaters, overseeing large-scale events for clients like Facebook and Hewlett Packard as Event Supervisor at Fort Mason Center, and managing front-of-house operations at the revamped Curran Theatre led to work as a house manager, production assistant, and operations assistant for Another Planet at the Outside Lands, Clusterfest, and Life is Beautiful festivals. She has since become the Event Director at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, deploying years of know how for high-profile clients like Samsung, Audi, Salesforce, Rakuten, Netflix, Apple, Twitter, and many more.
Melissa Yeung graduated with two bachelor’s degrees in science, but quickly found her real passion was in the events and entertainment industry. Soon after arriving in San Francisco, she landed at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in the Fillmore, gaining invaluable experience in marketing, artist hospitality, and event production.
