BRAD STROUSE

Brad began his career under the bright lights of the Nashville skyline as part of a boutique booking agency. He moved to his wife's hometown of Richmond out of love for her, but he made his way to ECE out of a love for live music and desire to help guide clients through the winding paths of artist booking.

Brad's music career began in his parents' basement playing drums to "That Thing You Do" and Third Eye Blind albums. In college, he hosted "Chainsaw Cafe", a late-night Metal show, which led to touring the country by van with seven smelly metalheads. Brad translated that experience on the road into jobs at both labels and booking agencies in Nashville before making his way to Richmond.

He has worked extensively in the touring, festival, college, and wedding markets. Brad is passionate about helping future brides, event planners, and buyers of all kinds navigate the process of booking live entertainment. No question is too small and every client is treated with the utmost respect.

Brad is an avid vinyl collector, music listener, endurance athlete, and Auburn Fan.


My favorite part of this job is working creatively with you - the bride, groom, event planner, family party planner, dreamer. If there's one thing I've learned it's no idea is too crazy whether it be the Jersey Boys in your backyard, Elvis deejaying your anniversary party, or a high energy dance band fronted by the bride's Dad belting out "Don't Stop Believing" - we can make your dreams come true!! Call me and let's start on your unforgettable event!
