This mission begins with community.

A welcoming atmosphere to gather with like-minded individuals to create something unique; an inherent culture of respect, support, humility, and ambition that allows everyone’s perceived strengths and weaknesses to contribute to progress as a whole.

Being a part of the artistic fabric that’s been thriving in the DMV for decades brings us so much joy; we’re all artists as well.  In our free time, we perform, create, promote, produce, and more – all with the aim of adding our energy and vibe to the culture of this region’s tapestry. For us to be able to provide services and a space where other members of our DMV community can also do that is the icing on the cake. We look forward to working with you.

“Running a successful business is not a one-person show. It takes a team effort, with each member contributing their unique skills and expertise to drive the business forward. Our vibe, our passion for all things music, and our commitment to serve is ingrained into CP+B’s company culture. Excellence is the standard, and culture is the medium. We’ve built something special here, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
