Meet Gino Munoz of Night Owl Productions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gino Munoz.

Gino, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am a full-time professor of music at Citrus College in Glendora, CA. I have been teaching there since 2001, where I started part-time until I was hired full time in 2007. My classes are unique to anything else in the country… most likely. Most music college programs do have ensembles in which these ensembles practice all semester for one concert at the end of the semester.

My classes are quite different, we are actually the entertainment for very high-end weddings at locations such as the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, The Jonathon Club, Ritz Carlton’s, etc. We are also the entertainment for country clubs such as Big Horn, Indian Wells, The Springs, etc… My classes, which mostly specialize in pop, rock, and current hits do 50-80 performances annually. We are quite busy, to say the least. Former students are currently touring with artists such as the Foo Fighters, Andy Grammar, Neil Young, Jason Derul0, Halsey and many more.

After doing this for a while, I realized that my former students needed an outlet to keep their musical dreams alive, so I created Night Owl Productions. These alumni of the program are highly skilled young professionals that perform with the great young energy and skills that you would expect to see at a concert. They are able to make money working weekly for Night Owl doing something that they absolutely love.

Has it been a smooth road?
I created this from nothing and have bought quite a bit of equipment and with that said, I have bought great equipment… all state of the art. It’s expensive. I have also bought vans so that the bands could show up to the jobs together and not worry about failing vehicles or gas to get to the jobs. With that said, the financial burden is not ideal, but I feel that the stress is outweighed by the opportunities for the young and hungry musicians.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Night Owl Productions provides music for events, weddings, corporate parties, and as of lately, we have been co-producing a show at sea world in San Antonio, Texas. This has been an extension of my full-time job as an educator and am now providing opportunities for young musicians to flourish in the music industry.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
LA is the best city to do what we do at Night Owl. It’s an entertainment hub!
