McCusker & Barrick Music, formerly Gene Donati Presentations, is a full service professional organization based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area featuring solo musicians, string ensembles, jazz combos, and dance bands.
Having been in the music business for over 35 years, we have provided music for numerous wedding ceremonies and receptions. In addition to playing various corporate, organizational, and political events, we have also provided music for the last nine U.S. Presidential Inaugural Balls.
When sending a proposal to a prospective client, we will also include our demo CD to show our high level of musicianship, and unsolicited letters that we have received, in order to demonstrate our consistent high level of client satisfaction.
Our emphasis has been to give each of our clients our full attention to every detail of their event. For prospective clients in our local area a meeting is beneficial for everyone in order for us to personalize their party. By the same token, for those who are outside of our local area, we can attain the same level of attention to detail via phone, fax, or email.

Baltimore Assembly Ball
