I was extremely fortunate to become gainfully employed by East Coast Entertainment in June of 1996. In January of 1997, the company believed in me enough to open the Raleigh, NC office. As a former “full-time” road musician for 10 plus years, the natural progression to become a talent agent with this great company has been seamless and has reaped GREAT rewards!
Over the past 15 years I pride myself in being involved with East Coast Entertainment’s “core business” of providing acts for colleges, nightclubs, country clubs, corporate events, and wedding receptions. I’ve also had the opportunity & privilege to produce national shows with acts like Morris Day & The Times, Dennis Smith’s Temptations, The Delphonics, and The Trammps, just to name a few.
With many years of playing experience & still performing in 2 bands, my knowledge of the artist’s side, as well as the agency’s side gives me comfort in knowing that I am very confident in creating events that make memories for a lifetime!
