My name is James. I founded the Oregon Booking Agency for a couple of reasons. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago and I have experienced firsthand some truly fantastic musicians even at the club level. I want to bring that level of accomplishment, showmanship and entertainment to the West Coast. I am tired of seeing the same bands week after week and hearing the same songs over and over no matter how good the band was or I liked the song. I want to help the musicians here in Oregon by raising the bar on their own expectations, as well as of their audience and help aspiring musicians make their mark and bring new talent to new audiences.

My background is sales, marketing, logistics, and customer service. I have also done extensive work in video, audio, production, and promotion. I have worked in clubs and bars in the suburbs of Chicago, Kenosha, Fort Smith, and Denver. I have worked in radio and television in Phoenix, AZ, Fort Smith and Searcy, AR. I have been a vital part of management teams that have won CMA awards (Country Music Association) for Large Market Radio Station of the Year (KNIX-FM, Tempe, AZ) & Night Club of the Year (Grizzly Rose, Denver, CO).

Thank you to all of you who have helped make us a success including providing music for over 1200 events at 50 different venues.

Thank you to all of the venues, artists, advisors, and friends for your patronage, your music, your encouragement and support.
