Summary

Out of Step Entertainment is guided by ethics, values, and a little Midwest charm. President Geoff Koboldt is a MBA graduate executive who has formed a myriad of serious business relationships with key players in the entertainment and action sports world. They are looking for artists to add to their management roster.   

The Out of Step Entertainment management package (for those selected) includes:

  • Designing, developing and executing a total-package strategy.

  • Assembling a team of leaders to manage all aspects of the business from lawyers to agents to A&R.

  • Relentless promotion to everyone they meet - exponential growth.

  • Touring and Promotion - Maximizing positive returns while opening up new doors, gaining sponsors/investors, etc. Note, Out of Step is not a booking agent.

  • Helping with major business decisions, such as deciding which record company to sign with, who to license your music to, choosing a publishing company, and more importantly how to negotiate the maximum amount.

  • Creative process - theatrics and live presentation skills, which producer to use, which songs to record, selecting photographers, designers and website content.

  • Coordinating a publicity campaign with their various friends throughout the US who handle public relations, branding and advertising. Our own guerilla marketing techniques will also be utilized.

  • Alliances with key bands to maximize exposure in new markets as well as key businesses who utilize music.
Artists represented by Out of Step have licensed their music in movies grossing more than $200 million, landed development deals with major labels, gained National sponsorships, performed in International festivals and returned a profit on a $15k investment as a local band.

Out of Step Entertainment is currently working or has worked with a diverse range of artists from indie rock, folk, jazz, punk, acoustic, electronic, synth-pop rock, metal, alternative rock and more.

Out of Step Entertainment's past is most peoples futures; the Los Angeles based firm maintains a history of integrity and honesty amongst the sea of competing greedy sharks in the entertainment world. 

 
Furthermore, they are committed to giving at least 10% of profits to charity.  Geoff says, "Music is what unites us globally and due to the injustices of the world, right or wrong, we feel it is our honor to help others when possible." Out of Step has supported organizations such as the Musicares Map fund, American Cancer Society, National Wildlife Fund, Goodwill, local food banks, Heal the Bay, Actions Sports Environmental Coalition and many more.

Having been working-class artists themselves (Geoff performed over 200 shows per year), as well as handling the marketing and promotions for major label acts as a hired 3rd party (RCA, Dreamworks, Capitol, BMG, Universal, Warner, etc.), they know first-hand the struggles of making it in the complex music business. In fact, they have personal friends who have sold 3+ million records and still owe the label money after being dropped. It is indeed an unforgiving cut-throat industry!
