TBN Entertainment (TBN) was established in 1996 as "Talent Buyer's Network" to serve the entertainment outsourcing needs of casinos, festivals & fairs, performing arts centers, corporate events, universities, and more. Since that time the business has gone on to work with venues, organizations, and artists of all sizes in an effort to fulfill client goals while simultaneously providing the best experience to consumers.
The company was originally opened as a subsidiary of Good Music Agency (GMA), which was founded in 1972 by Brian Knaff and Doug Brown. Throughout the years GMA maintained a diverse roster of more than 125 exclusive artists while training a substantial number of agents who went on to oversee the music industry. Executives like Chip Hooper (Paradigm Agency), Ron Baird (Creative Artists Agency), Keith Miller (William Morris Entertainment) and many more all played a role in the colorful history of GMA.
Partners Frank Catrambone, Jr. and Todd Rodeghiero acquired TBN and Good Music Agency in 2017. Revamped and retooled for an ever changing industry, the company strives to serve clients "in partnership" to achieve their unique goals across property; i.e. talent buying, show marketing, F&B strategy, production, ticketing, staffing, financial / performance tracking, brand activations, and more.
The TBN team brings over 90 years of combined industry experience to the table in an industry where content is king and relationships are paramount to provide clients with the visibility, buying power, and leverage they require to succeed.
TBN's overarching objective is to deliver and support entertainment programming for our clients. We achieve this goal through a collaborative, partner-based approach, forging close relationships with management teams and leveraging 30 years of agent & artist management relationships . We seek partnerships with those who share our vision and our passion for the live entertainment industry.
TBN is a member of regional and statewide organizations such as WSFA, WIGA, MIGA, WFA, IAFA, IAFE, OFA, IEBA and MPI.
