He brings knowledge, experience, and understanding to the agency from the perspective of both the performer and agent.
Carlos Keyes is joined by colleagues Robert Rowland and Rick Shoor. Director and agent for the Northeast, Robert Rowland has promoted the business side of music bands since his high school days in England, where he performed with artists including Tommy Erdelyi and John Cummings, who would later form The Ramones. Prior to joining Red Entertainment Agency in 2008, he worked for 14 years at Talent Consultants International, promoting popular music artists such as Nancy Sinatra and Dave Davies of The Kinks. Rick Shoor, agent for the West Coast, started his career at Frontier Booking International in 1980. He landed Joan Jett & the Blackhearts just prior to the group’s first breakout album release, and worked bookings for other performers, including The Go-Go’s, Robert Palmer, and UB40.
Each member of the Red Entertainment Agency team brings the personal commitment to make a booking lead to the success each artist deserves. It’s a commitment that has served clients well since 2002, and continues to do so today.
