Meet the dynamic duo behind McCormick Creations & Co., Gary and Emily McCormick. With a shared passion for music and food, they bring a unique blend of talents and experiences to our business.

Gary, a seasoned bass player, discovered his love for music during his time at NC State University. He went on to become the driving force behind The Mack Band, a group renowned for their soulful grooves and impeccable musicianship. Gary firmly believes that music and food are inseparable partners, each enhancing the other. With the right soundtrack, good food becomes extraordinary, and memorable moments are made.

Emily, on the other hand, has nearly two decades of experience in the events industry. Her journey has taken her from traveling with national stage plays to organizing Fortune Global 500 corporate conferences, nonprofit galas, fundraising events, and live music concerts. As a current Board Member of the Triangle Chapter of the National Association of Catering & Events, Emily's expertise knows no bounds. Together, Gary and Emily have seen and done it all in the world of events.

After launching their first brick-and-mortar southern-style buffet restaurant/venue in her hometown of Warren County, North Carolina they were hit with a global COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.  After many attempts to pivot, they were forced to shutter in December 2020. 

Despite the challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Gary and Emily's passion for bringing people together through music and cuisine persisted. In response to the continued demand for premier live music events and exceptional cuisine, McCormick Creations & Co. was born in January 2021. Our mission is simple yet profound: to merge culture, food, and music in a way that creates unforgettable memories.

Throughout the year, McCormick Creations & Co. hosts a variety of live music events, including the annual Jazz & Jokes Valentine's Gala, the All White on the Green Music & Food Festival, Mother's Day Sunday Brunch, and Live Band Karaoke. We invite you to join us in celebrating the power of music, the joy of great food, and the magic of bringing people together. Let us create an experience that resonates with your heart and soul.

Thank you for choosing McCormick Creations & Co. We look forward to making your next event an unforgettable masterpiece.
