I ran a profitable independent concert business for 7 years - putting on over 100 concerts and a music festival.
Promoting concerts consisted of all aspects of each concert - negotiating the deal with bands and venues, running all aspects of production - AV, security, hospitality, tickets, etc.
Created a 2 day festival in downtown featuring 32 bands on 3 different venues/stages. The 2010 lineup included: Justin Townes Earle, Rocky Votolato, Damien Jurado, Joe Pug, Horse Feathers, Sera Cahoone, Laura Gibson, Moondoggies, Maldives, Cataldo, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band, Mimicking Birds, and many, many more.
Artists presented: Built To Spill, Cursive, Justin Townes Earle, Blind Pilot, Blitzen Trapper, Local Natives, Dawes, Blue Scholars, Cave Singers, Fruit Bats, David Bazan, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Shearwater, Helio Sequence, Typhoon, Vetiver, Joe Pug, STRFKR, Mt. Eerie, Yacht, Rocky Votolato, Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside, Richard Buckner, Matt Pond PA, Pickwick, Horse Feathers, Sera Cahoone, El Ten Eleven, Royal Bangs, etc.
