I have been in the entertainment business since I was thirteen. I started having house parties with my friends because I felt that I could do it better than anyone else. I got into everyone’s feelings of what they thought what the best party would be. I outgrew having them at my house quickly and so I met someone that I had known for a long time that had a big house that would hold more people just in the basement. When I got into college, I started a club based on us having parties and making money since none of us were 21 it was the best place to have shows. At the time, we hosted the biggest shows in the history of the school. I spent 4 years in the military thinking about how I could do parties while I was in the service. This didn’t work out too well so when I got out of the service, I searched for an answer and then in 1980 I found a college to go to and I started having parties. The biggest parties the school had ever hosted. I was grooming myself for what was to come. In 1986 I returned to San Jose, California where after years of searching I found my calling. I would do live shows for upcoming artists. By 2009 we were the largest live local entertainment company in Northern California and to this day no one has done more for local talent. Now that the world has changed, and we have to wear masks and stay apart I am going to do the same thing with the internet of putting on shows and supporting the up and coming artist.
