Balco Management, LLC, an investment firm for discerning clients, proudly announces today the partnership and launch of entertainMe!, a national music and event production management company based in Austin, TX. The company will offer turnkey services in music events, concerts, and festival production management.
Jeff Ballard, who is the Managing Principal for Balco Management explained, “Music and entertainment have been passions of mine for years. The opportunity to partner with John T. to launch entertainMe! just seemed like the natural progression. John T. and I both have a deep passion for live music and are part of several organizations that support the music industry and artists.With John T.’s varied music industry experience that has included promoting shows, live music production, investing in artists’ projects, artist and music advocacy and as an attorney that has consulted with and advised music artists on a variety of entertainment and other legal matters, we’re ready to usher in this new production company that will zealously pursue excellence in the events it produces.”
Austin is a 24-hour town populated by music and tech events, festivals and shows. From Old Settler’s Music Festival celebrating over 30 years to SXSW, which welcomes over 160,000 visitors each year, entertainMe! will help not only enhance the lives of musicians but take live music production to a new level.
“I have always wanted to create a live music production company that would strive for excellence in the events it produces for not only those experiencing the event but for those participating in the event.I am passionate about empowering artists to live out their passion and providing them with the forum to inspire others to do the same through their art,” said John T. “Jeff and I love putting on events, bringing people together to connect with artists and doing so in a way that provides an excellent experience for all involved. Jeff’s talents as a businessman, investor and creative marketing mind paired with my music industry and entertainment legal experience has provided us with the tools to shape a vision for entertainMe! that will allow us to deliver an unforgettable live music experience for music lovers of all ages and an excellent experience for artists of all types that participate in our events.”
The Partners have recently welcomed Daniel Anderson to the team. Daniel will be serving as the Vice President of Productions. A life-long music lover, Daniel’s event and production experience includes time spent with the Harlem Globetrotter Organization and a Nashville based record label. Music runs in his family and Daniel’s deep love of music has given him the ability and drive to develop strong relationships with many in the music industry today. His last 10 years living in Nashville has given him the unique opportunity to grow close to the issues that affect both artists and industry workers. He is excited to use his experience, knowledge and passion to help the artist community be truly appreciated for their craft by using the unique scale of productions that entertainMe! will provide. “I believe this opportunity is a chance for me to use my skills and abilities to make a better product not only for the audience to enjoy, but also in an environment that allows Artists to thrive.”
