Andre Morrison is a local promoter in the Rochester area known for turning up the party for the grown and sexy. Andre’s interest in music was sparked at a young age by the females in his family. His memories of his early childhood include his Godmother and other women in the family playing music around the house. His grandfather was also a musician. Grandpa’s band often practiced when Andre was around. As far as Andre can remember, music was a big part of his life.

Mr. Morrison and PEACE Productions definitely provide a “class act” when promoting events.
Doing shows in the Rochester area, can be difficult and provide many challenges for the local promoter. One of the most difficult is the liability presented regarding any violent incidents. This aspect is frustrating because obviously the promoter really can’t do much to prevent episodes of violence. In our area, many clubs are shut down for this reason. Another challenge is that anybody can call themselves a promoter. Promotes come a dime a dozen. To be successful one must step their game up. Andre prides himself in doing classy, sophisticated events. He decorates the venue and often provides food. This is one of many ways to make your event more enjoyable.
