Curious about what kind of goodies are handed out backstage at the Grammys? Distinctive Assets, the LA-based entertainment marketing company credited with launching the promotional craze of celebrity swag nearly two decades ago, will once again produce the official talent gift bags and backstage gift lounge for the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards®. The legendary show’s presenters and performers will be treated to fabulous thank you gifts in acknowledgment and appreciation of their participation.

“It is a true honor to be even a very small part of Music’s Biggest Night® for so many years now,” says Distinctive Assets’ founder Lash Fary. “Just as the GRAMMYs® themselves are the gold standard in the music industry, the GRAMMY Gift Lounge has become the benchmark by which all other talent gifting experiences are measured.”
