HighBrow Event Group was founded by husband and wife team, Tommy and Shannon Maria Brower. Though becoming official in 2018, the pair has over 35 years of combined history in event planning, the culinary arts, and as interactive dining hosts. Their true passion is the client experience: from the initial phone call or email, through being able to enjoy a world-class event, to the effortless clean-up, and the reminiscing with guests afterwards. Always on the front lines, no task too large or small, Tommy and Shannon will be right with you every step of the way.
Tommy has been in the restaurant industry since buying his first bar in 1997. Owner of many local restaurants and bars, he’s worked with local legends at The Blarney Stone, Boulevard Bar & Grill, Bryan Street Pub, Gigi, and “Big Al’s New Year’s Eve Bashes”! Known by many as the “Mayor of Delaware County” due to his upbeat personality, positive outlook on life, and love of laughter, Tommy makes everyone he encounters a little happier.
Shannon Maria, the “Beer Mistress” to many, has spent 6 years with Dashing Rogue hosting in-home beer pairing dinners where her culinary skills and hosting prowess have earned her great acclaim. Her event planning history spans everything from Black Tie galas to $1M+ events for the American Cancer Society, and her improvisation and singing skills have her making frequent appearances at Renaissance Faires all over the US.
