NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Tony Conway, President/CEO Buddy Lee Attractions Inc. (BLA), announced today the acquisition of Diversified National Artists Agency (DNA) and agent Steve Peck. Peck will launch the rock department at BLA as well as handle the west coast territory for all BLA artists. Peck joins current BLA agents with territory’s Kevin Neal (southeast), Bob Kinkead (northeast and eastern Canada), Jon Folk (southwest), David Kiswiney (midwest and central Canada), Gary Kirves (northwest and western Canada), Joan Saltel (Fairs and Festivals), and Tony Conway (international and special events).
“With the recent acquisition of Fantasma Productions in Florida by Live Nation, and the passing of its owner Jon Stoll, we began conversation with Steve about relocating to Nashville,” says Conway. “He was an agent with BLA 12 years prior so this transition is so natural.”
Steve Peck, responsible agent for the artists of Fantasma Tours International, opened DNA in Palm Beach, Florida, with such acts as Gallagher, Ambrosia, Al Jardine, The Knack, Lovin' Spoonful, Rick Derringer, amongst others. The decision to relocate back to Nashville and join BLA came quick as Pecks’ daughter decided she would attend Belmont University.
“Steve is a much respected agent and leader in the entertainment industry. He has a proven track record of success in the live touring world. We missed him while he was in Florida and are glad to have him back,” adds Kevin Neal, Sr. VP Buddy Lee Attractions.
Steve Peck may be reached at 615-244-4336 ext 114 or firstname.lastname@example.org starting today!
An announcement will be made in the next week on the artists joining the current BLA client list, at this time approximately 17 artists have confirmed the move.
