Manhattan-based Creative Entertainment Group (CEG Presents) is a booking and promotional agency that works with some of the most well-known venues in the New York and New Jersey areas. We exclusively book for CODA and Lions Den and promote concerts at numerous venues, such as BB Kings, Canal Room, Crash Mansion, Knitting Factory, SOB's, and others. Over the years, CEG has promoted concerts at such New York City venues as CBGB, Irving Plaza, Tramps, and Westbeth Theater Center; New Jersey venues such as the Court Tavern, State Theater and Maxwells; and the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California.
We are looking for local or touring national acts to book and promote in the New York and New Jersey areas. Not only will we book bands in some of the most prominent clubs and bars around, but we will also do extensive promotion for the shows.
CEG is one of the best independent promoters in the country due to our expert use of both online and offline grass-roots promotion. We use various forms of online marketing and have also developed a promotional route involving hundreds of stores both in and out of Manhattan. These stores manage street teams of music fans who, along with other promotional tasks, distribute hand bills at area shows. We also feature advertisements for our bands and their show dates in several local publications. Our promotional background and experience allows us to provide expert services and marketing for all the bands that we book.
