Al Gomes of Big Noise was hired by jazz artist and big band leader John Daversa to oversee his entire strategic and publicity team that successfully scored him three Grammy Award Nominations for his CD 'Kaleidoscope Eyes: Music of The Beatles' for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album, Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella ('Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds'), and Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals (John Daversa featuring Renee Olstead - 'Do You Want to Know A Secret').

John called Al after the nominations were announced and said, 'Can I tell you what a blessing it was to have you come into my life at this particular moment. I'm so grateful to you! We're just getting started. You know what this means - the nominations - it means an artist continues to have another gig. I know this was a professional thing between us, but I could feel it went to another place. I could feel the emotional part of it for you...and that you really cared.'
