We are a premiere Concert Productions & Promotions Company on the East Coast. We produce concerts in major markets, targeting adults 50+, featuring 70's, 80's and 90's music.
Sponsorship provide a unique opportunity for brands to connect with their target audiences in a meaningful, coherent way.
Sponsoring events affords brands the unique opportunity to grow mindshare with an event’s attendees. Attendees by nature are an invested, engaged and highly targeted sample of a target market.
