Business Music That's HR Friendly and Funny!

Three Chords and an MBA™ drives business goals forward one funny song at a time!
We write and perform creative original songs that use humor to help your organization do four things: entertain, train, prioritize and recognize. Why is this method so effective? Two reasons: 1) Music Magnifies Memory and 2) Our original material is both funny AND relevant to your audience. Let us help you build cohesive teams and drive business goals forward through shared laughter!
