trademarked as an international booking agency created to develop and book bands in the metal, gothic, industrial, ethereal and related genres, it successfully booked tours and productions in a variety of venues including nightclubs, theaters, universities, festivals, amphitheaters and stadiums, ranging in capacities and attendance from 500-150,000
throughout North America, Europe and abroad, thereby supporting indie and major label acts alike.
Associated with talent agencies CAA and WME, a long list of promoters that included Delsner Slater, Sam Levinstone, Charles Attal, Phantasy, SFX, NIPP – and later Clear Channel, Live Nation and AEG, and innumerous record labels that operated independently and under the Universal, Warner Bros and Sony umbrellas, Dark Moon developed countless artists to grow their fan base followings and market value enough to be considered and absorbed by the higher ups.
Dark Moon Entertainment advanced a myriad of artists over the years, playing an integral development role in artists including Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie, Marilyn Manson, The Cult, Type O Negative, Sepultura, Rammstein, Ministry, Motorhead, Life Of Agony, KMFDM, Opeth, In Flames
and their related projects
(see our 'past artists' link for a more detailed list).
Dark Moon staff were known for going above and beyond the call of duty,
with a pull-up-the-sleeves and hustle-to-make-it-happen attitude.
It had a handpicked team required to hold the same ideals and ethics.
As the years changed the face of the industry, Dark Moon adapted.
Founded in 1993, it later tranformed from its original vision into a management firm
that identified and negotiated oportunities for its clientele,
to a branding agency that produced custom, strategic business development and marketing plans, partnership, licensing, sponsorship and endorsement acquisition, merchandising, and media projects for high-profile entertainment celebrities.
It now serves as a parent company for various divisions that produce marketing and media, brand partnerships and positioning, sponsorship and endorsement, film and television, in content opportunities, commercial advertising, publicity, talent buying and events.
Like the moon it reflected change, in the dark it worked covertly in the background, seemlessly –
over two decades offering the best in music, media and entertainment.
