Over our twenty three year history, we’ve been blessed to work with some of the biggest names in music. We’ve produced first class concerts all over the U.S. Also, we’ve booked these artists on shows like “Legends and Lyrics” and “IndieVille”. This has allowed us to strengthen our working relationships with managers, booking agents, publicity firms, and the artists themselves over the years.
Non Profit Work
We are most proud of our non profit work. We’ve worked with local charities in Memphis and all over Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. Through our efforts and donations, we have provided over $250,000 of cash and in-kind services to dozens of charities including St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Boys and Girls Club, Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, The Salvation Army, Special Olympics, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, American Red Cross, Toys For Tots, Bikers and Social Clubs for Change (providing funds to refurbish safe houses for at risk youth in Memphis), Seek Ye Old Path Homeless Shelter (provided Thanksgiving to over 300 families), Let’s Bring Them Home, the Bethany Foundation, Horses For Healing, The Northwest Arkansas Young Professionals, Pagnozzi Charities, the Jackson Graves Foundation, and more. We have honored fallen fire fighters and police officers.
