Metropolitan Entertainment Group will produce all shows at BB King Blues Club & Grill in association with the club as it has signed on as exclusive talent and marketing consultants. Effective immediately, MEG will begin directing marketing efforts for all concerts at the club, as well as consulting on new ways to further the established venue.
Steve Bensusan, president of Times Square Entertainment Group, LLC, which owns B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, says, "We are excited to partner with Metropolitan. As one of the top concert producers in the country, we look forward to utilizing their expertise and establishing the club as a premiere 1,000-seat venue for both artists and music fans alike."
Adds MEG's VP Carl Freed, "This gives Metropolitan strategic positioning to develop artists in New York at the 1,000-seat level, filling the void between the small club level of Shine and the theater-sized Hammerstein Ballroom."
