Managing Director - Craig Brown
Craig has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. He owned an event management company which successfully produced major extravaganzas for Oxford and Cambridge colleges, before branching out nationally and working in the corporate and private sector with clients such as Solid State Logic, Richard Branson, The Central London YMCA plus various Lords, Ladies and Majesties.
In addition to working with music acts such as Elvis Costello, Chuck Berry, Howard Jones, Hugh Masekela, Wilko Johnson, Curiosity Killed The Cat, World Party, The Blow Monkeys, The La’s, The Pogues and many more, Craig helped a young Paul McKenna to make the transition from being a successful Capital Radio DJ, to being an accomplished stage hypnotist. That man is now a gazillionaire!! Cheques or cash accepted please Mr McKenna.
This period of his career also saw him working with legendary comedians such as Jo Brand, Felix Dexter, Jim Tavare, Steven Frost, Neil Mullarkey, Nick Hancock and a very young Mike Myers to name but a few. He also worked with some amazing comedy magicians such as John Lenahan and Keith Fields. His recent work with Shalamar has made him reconnect to this world through the awesome Marvin Berglas, who the group appointed as their Magic Consultant.
Recently Craig and RTM produced the Giants of Soul tour, working hand in hand with the promoter to book the acts, perform the advancing and provide effective tour management across all 15 UK venues. There were no fights. None at all.
Craig is the head of two independent record labels – Real Thing Music Ltd and Phat Sky Records Ltd.
Craig also played in a Blues Brothers band back in the day. Craig needs a raise.
