Elizabeth Bridges, President
Elizabeth found her way into "show business" after college and through an immediate friendship forged with her soon to be mentor, Ralph Bridges. Meeting each other at The Capitol City Club in Atlanta in the early 1980's, Ralph invited Elizabeth to join his staff where she was introduced to the talents and renown of Ferrante & Teicher, Roger Williams, The Kingston Trio, The Platters, Marco Valenti and The Mantovoni Orchestra. Fast forward thirty years and you have a career built on friendships, passion, partnerships and most of all, love.
"On with the show!"

Joe Konrad, Artist Representative
Joe comes to us with diverse experience in NFP management including holding the Executive Director position at a Performing Arts Center in Wisconsin. He tells us he has spent his life as a consumer of the performing arts. “We would actually plan vacations around performer’s tour dates. Big Band, Rock, Country, Jazz, even Classical. I think it all starts with being a lover of the arts.”
Joe looks forward to working with presenters in the upper midwest region. “If there is an artist on our roster you are interested in, I will work hard to make something mutually beneficial happen. If you are looking for ideas or suggestions, I would be honored to help.”
