Move Concerts has launched a new full-service talent agency, WMM, in partnership with management/booking firm WorkShow and Brazilian entrepreneur Marcus Buaiz.
WMM will provide a full-service operation, including booking, sponsorship/branding and social media, to artists on the roster of Move, Latin America’s largest independent promoter.
It is headed up by Pepeu Correa, who explains: “We plan to improve the professionalism of a market known for its peculiar and challenging characteristics. Our roster of artists will benefit from WMM, as they’ll be able to rely on a company structure and support rarely seen before in Brazil.”
“With WMM we plan to invest in various verticals within the world of live entertainment”
Move Concerts CEO Phil Rodriguez, who recently celebrated his 40th year in the business, comments: “This is an exciting opportunity. We bring not only our extensive touring experience in South America to the table, but also, with our offices in various countries throughout the region, the possibility of assisting some of our artists to become established in these markets as well as in Brazil.”
“Live entertainment requires productive performance in several areas,” adds William Crunfli, president of Move Concerts Brazil. “With WMM we plan to invest in various verticals within the world of live entertainment.”
