Big Picture Joins Velvet Hammer



LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — As of June 1st, Jonathan Shank’s Big Picture Music Management has partnered with Velvet Hammer Music & Management Group. Shank’s clients Particle, The Mutaytor and Mickey Hart have joined the roster at Velvet Hammer, as well as Planet Drum and the newly re-formed Rhythm Devils.

Shank explained that after three years of building his client roster and developing artists, it seemed like a natural step to join forces with a management company.

He first connected with Velvet Hammer’s David “Beno” Benveniste while working with the company’s Streetwise in 2004 for a Particle marketing campaign, eventually leading to the newly formed partnership.

“Beno has amazing vision and it’s such a great team at Velvet Hammer,” Shank told CelebrityAccess.

"We're very excited to have Jonathan join us here at Velvet Hammer," said Benveniste. "His experience and knowledge of 'culture', and what it takes to build long-term success is a perfect fit for our game plan in spawning the next wave of great live entertainers."
