Elizabeth Bridges, President

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!”

Philip Moye

Philip Moye: Vice President, Sales Emeritus

Philip joined the Alkahest team in the Fall of 2010, from a career as a mortgage broker. With his vast knowledge of marketing and his wide and varied appreciation for all musical and theatrical styles, Philip brought a great energy to the Alkahest Team. Among his many contributions, Philip was responsible for introducing LIVERPOOL LEGENDS, CHI-TOWN TRANSIT AUTHORITY, SAIL ON, THE BEACH BOYS TRIBUTE; 7 BRIDGES, THE ULTIMATE EAGLES EXPERIENCE; SHADOWS OF THE 60’S; and WOMEN &CHILDREN FIRST to the Alkahest family and countless music fans and theatre patrons from coast to coast. These years have gone by quickly and been wrought with many challenges but the triumphs have sustained us. During the 2023 season, Philip will be bowing out as an agent. His focus will be on his health and life as a ‘behind the scenes’ supporter and a forever champion of his many friends and colleagues. Philip, thank you for being part of the “triumph” in our journey!
