CLANDESTINE IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! If I could give them a 10 star review I would. Kelley and Steve are very professional and easy to work with. They go above and beyond in all that they do. When working with them you don’t feel like business partners, but more of so of best friends. They put together a work event for my company at the Orpheum Theater in New Orleans; the place looked magical. We had over 200 guest and they all mentioned that this is a night they would never forget. Hats off to you Kelley and Steve. I look forward to working with you guys again in the near future.

Executing multiple events in a pandemic was quite the challenge but working with Clandestine made it… dare I say fun? I could write a review in 4 words, put simply, they get it done. The team is warm, welcomes a collaborative effort and their ability to be flexible at a moment’s notice is unmatched. I would trust them with any professional or personal event.

With less than a week to finish planning a corporate retreat in New Orleans, I happened across Clandestine Events and reached out to them to see if they could help. Clandestine’s Kelly Troia was a miracle worker. She listened closely to my requirements, put together a custom plan and went to work. Somehow she managed to galvanize an incredible assortment of joy makers. They not only provided the best team-building activity for my group at Music Box Village, but they orchestrated a truly magical experience that bonded us as a team and created wonderful shared memories. These people know what they are doing and they are the best at it. I cannot recommend them enough.

If you’re dreaming of throwing an epic party, Clandestine can make it happen. Kelley and her team are in the memory making business! She hits it out of the park every time.

Rhett Bourgeois, LSU Tailgate

Clandestine planned a 200 person event for us in New Orleans and blew us away. Not only was the actual event wonderful but the service before during and after was top notch. Their staff was present the entire time to cater to our needs and even grabbed some items we left behind and dropped them off to us after it was all over. Could not have been happier with the job Clandestine did. Highly recommend.

Kelley and crew go above and beyond to ensure success. No way I could have pulled off my kid’s sweet sixteen without them. Besides transforming a dive bar into a swank club from the 1920’s,Team Clandestine coordinated a precision dance floor balloon drop. The kids went beserk. You know the party is a success when the sixteen year olds are boogeying down with the adults and no one wants to leave. Love you guys and hugely grateful.

Kelley and Clandestine did my wedding and rehearsal supper planning almost 3 years ago. I felt very confident on my wedding day knowing that Clandestine had handled every detail and I would not have to worry about the day’s events. Kelley was a pleasure to work with and was great at communicating my needs and desires with other vendors. I continue to use Clandestine when visiting New Orleans for significant events, dinners, and outings. We are already in the process of planning my 40th birthday bash and I am really looking forward to it! I highly recommend Clandestine for all of your New Orleans events needs, large or small.

Cannot recommend Kelley and Clandestine enough! We were their first Sonoma wedding, but it felt like they had a west coast office established for years, dedicated to just our wedding. Robert and I met and lived in New Orleans, moved to Maryland, and got married in his home county of Sonoma, CA, some 2900 miles away from where we lived at the time. Kelley was always available, always calm, always supportive, and always the voice of reason. She was the best friend I didn’t know I had before she took us on. Our wedding was incredibly personal, indescribably beautiful, and more special than I can say. Kelley and her boyfriend even spent Christmas with us in California to get a sense of the place and my (now) husband’s family – could you ask for more??? A year-plus after our wedding, Kelley and I are still in touch on an almost daily basis, she visits us when she’s in town, and we feel so much a part of her extended family. Simply can’t say enough about the amazing support and expertise she provided!! If Clandestine is available for your event, no matter the nature or how large or small, book them NOW. There is zero chance you will regret it.

Kelly @ Clandestine Events helped execute the most amazing weekend in NOLA. My husband was celebrating a big birthday and she made the weekend effortless. She helped with tricky reservations, ordered and delivered a birthday cake to a restaurant so I didn’t have to deal with a baker/ delivery .. .etc. She was easy to reach the ENTIRE weekend and juggled to make magic happen! With Kelly’s help and recommendations, we saw parts of NOLA we didn’t even know existed.
I recommend Clandestine to anyone looking for an epic , carefree time in New Orleans.

Becca Fox

We wanted a worry free wedding, and that’s exactly what we got. Clandestine took care of everything so that we could enjoy our wedding and our guests. What else could a bride really ask for? Thank you, Clandestine!!
