Right Brain: Georgina Lucaric
October 6, 2006
Georgina Lucaric spent the last four years in Las Vegas taking in as many shows as possible. She’s now back in the county she calls home and is hoping to use her breadth of knowledge in the entertainment field to spice up Summit County.Lucaric, a DJ and musician in her own right, plans parties and helps artists get their press packages together through her company, G DoG Productions. The former accountant found her niche when she began seeing a disconnect between talent and the clubs that needed them while crunching numbers at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
“A lot of bands didn’t know how to get booked at the casinos … I started helping bands for a charge to get their promotional packages together so they could obtain different club dates,” Lucaric said. “I was sick of being an accountant and sitting behind a desk. I would much rather be promoting people who are actively in their art.”So in 2005, Lucaric, aka G Dog, began her company in Las Vegas.She recently returned and is hoping to represent artists as well as offer some variations on the traditional entertainment options in the county.
For nightclubs, she is prepared to set up practically any theme party from Toga to Casino Night to an 80s party and recently came up with an Angels and Devils theme for a party at Dan Fallon’s Chill Nightclub in Frisco. Fallon said he sees potential in the theme parties and hopes to continue them on a monthly basis.”It’s different enough people might want to get off the sofa for it,” he said.”People are always looking to do something different, even if it’s in the same place,” Lucaric said.
Lucaric uses either a two- or three-man crew including herself when putting on theme parties with one person DJing behind a booth and at least one other mic’d person out in the crowd. She and her partners then facilitate the contests and activities throughout the evening.As a member of a family of entertainers, 36-year-old Lucaric began singing and playing the piano before the age of 10 and currently performs in the local David Quick Project band.”Entertainment has always been a joy, and exciting to me,” she said. “I can’t say it makes me a whole lot of money, but it’s a whole lot of fun.”
