We began in 76 at the Lay-Z-J Ranch and Saloon, with New Age Music Bookings Concerts in Bloomington like Robert Hunter, John Lee Hooker, Jim Schwall, Heartsfield, Delbert McClinton, John Hiatt, Adrian Belew, New Grass Revival (Sam Bush & Bela Fleck). Then with de Bourbon Projects, managing and promoting regional bands to national recognition, artists like Jim Schwall, Kool Ray & the Polaroidz, Mojo Stew, and the Something Brothers.
Coming to rest with EMI Management of the Madison Theater, and the Riverfront Amphitheater's Stars Beneath the Stars Concert Series bringing national artist like Blues Traveler, BB King, Alison Krause, & Union Station, Warren Zevon, The Doobie Brothers Widespread Panic, and the Flecktones.
Now we have a renewed take on music we are calling Stormbrew Music. Thanks for visiting and come back often to see our great line up of artists, and maybe listen to my audio book history of our travels. Thanks Denny de Bourbon
