Stewart Entertainment was founded on our passion to bring artists and fans together. Our collective expertise offers our clients consulting, publicity, booking, management and publishing in one package because we believe all of these are key to maximizing an artist's true potential. Our music business insights, constant market research, and ability to utilize technology allows us to efficiently keep artists and fans more engaged. Our innovative approach lies at the intersections of Live Music, Media, Technology, and Marketing.
Stewart Entertainment's mission is to help talented artists maximize their potential by supporting them with quality management, consulting, booking, publishing, and publicity. We formed Stewart Entertainment because we continued to see artists struggle without these key elements, and know that our extensive professional experiences can bridge this gap for our clients.
At Stewart Entertainment, we fully support artists we believe in. We blend our deep industry knowledge in booking, management, publishing, and publicity with a commitment to the time and resources needed for each of our artists. We want our artists to focus on the music that is capable of bringing us all together while we focus on the business components to make their growth a reality. We create a sustainable infrastructure for the artists and make sense of their data so we can create/execute a strategy that yields the highest growth for their business.
We are very excited to announce that The Aquaducks have signed on with us for booking in 2020! This high-energy funk and soul band delivers a fresh, yet nostalgic brand of modern funk music.
The Aquaducks’ live show is a party on the stage and off, from start to finish. While the musical influence of artists such as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and Lettuce provide enough musical meat to satisfy the appetites of even the most discerning critics, their light-hearted and fun approach to performance ensures that no-one in the audience is left behind.
Described by Brooklyn, NY blog Pancakes and Whiskey as "Dripping with enough funk to fill several swimming pools," The Aquaducks have developed a strong audio-visual experience and established a long-term relationship with fans. Join now, or be late to the party.
We are pleased to announce that we have added Bernard Allison to the roster for bookings in 2020! Aside from being the son of blues legend Luther Allison, Bernard is a highly-accomplished and critically-acclaimed bluesman in his own right. Over his solo career, which began in 1990, he’s always held true to the traditions of the blues, while putting his own spin on things. You can hear it for yourself on his latest set, “Let It Go,” for Ruf Records. There are party anthems, funked-up struts, love songs, and a touching tribute to Pops over these twelve cuts. The whole thing was laid down at Bessie Blue Studios in Stantonville, with legendary producer Jim Gaines.
After doing a number of dates with Mike Zito in 2019, Bernard has a new Live album that will be recorded in October that is tentatively set for a spring 2020 release on Ruf Records.
If you are looking for true blues lineage/royalty with face-melting solos, then look no further than Bernard Allison. This is another great headlining act that many do not want to follow. and for good reason. This guy rips, but don't take our word for it.
