Jay Tavernese has called the lively world of artist management and concert production home for 19+ years, striving to bring bands to the forefront of their genre. His dedication to artist development and branding, managing shows of up to 4,000 people are a small glimpse of his many strengths in the business.
After earning his bachelor’s degree in Music Industry from the State University of New York at Oneonta in 1999, he joined the team at Concrete Management who represented metal heavyweights Pantera and Ministry. He went on to promoting hardcore and metal shows all over New York City at famous venues such as CBGB or The Wetlands, to managing several cult post-hardcore stalwarts, Hopesfall and Haste, to resurrecting the career of gold selling artist 10 Years and being one of the catalysts to have broke the widely known band “In This Moment” on their highly successful gold selling album “Blood”
