From the first time he heard a 3 chord guitar progression backed by a 2/4 drum beat, Mike Geremia knew he wanted to work in the music industry.
Mike's first foray into music was as a live sound engineer and production manager. From there he started handling the business dealings as well as the stage and sound production for some friends' bands. As luck would have it, at one of these shows he was spotted by the manager of a national act and was offered a job as tour manager. This led to 6 years as tour manager for Rick Derringer, Johnny and Edgar Winter on tours with Aerosmith, Bryan Adams, and ZZ Top, to mention a few.
Mike quit the road to become a full-time father, and started working at Flashgroup Concerts in Connecticut. There he learned the ropes, booking concerts in colleges and universities around the country. With 12 years experience under his belt, Mike was hired by Metropolitan Entertainment in New York. He headed up their college division for 5 years until the company was sold to Clear Channel Entertainment.
At this stage in his career, Mike decided to start his own college booking agency, Main Stage Productions. In his 20 years as a college agent, Mike has booked and produced a wide range of shows, such as: Ben Folds, Dave Chappelle, Maroon 5, Jay Leno, and U2 (yes, very early in their career even U2 played some colleges!)
John Dubuque has over 20 years experience in the music industry. He started out with his own regional booking agency that catered to regional acts playing clubs in the tri-state area. He also managed some artists careers taking them from the garage to landing them the proverbial “Record Deal”. From there he branched out to festivals and larger events.
In time John decided to take to the touring end of the business and quickly became a tour manager for such artists as Michael Bolton; Luther Vandross; Joan Jett; Cyndi Lauper; and Trans Siberian Orchestra taking him around the world.
John has an incredible grasp of how to produce concerts and festivals and is able to offer his experience to you the college buyer.
