They are a perfect solution for enterprises operating with lean Marketing teams and who have limited resources to negotiate, book and manage entertainers. Their pricing is competitive and their collaboration with property teams is excellent. Their network offers a selection of acts to fit every venue size and scope. I recommend Near Dark as the agency of choice to any Casino Marketing team.

    My teams and I have worked with Near Dark Entertainment for over 5 years in all facets of casino entertainment. Jason and his team have handled the programming of entertainment lounges as well as booking talent for major concert venues. Near Dark’s strength lies in their ability to provide a turn-key solution for their clients. When Near Dark booked headliner entertainment for us, they provided a staff member to the venue to: assist with setup, execute the rider requirements, liaise with the casino entertainment staff and the artist and their management, provide recommendations for improvement in execution/future events, and to be an extension of the casino staff. We have never experienced an entertainment agency that provided this level service. With Near Dark on hand, we had no worries or concerns and knew that our concert would be executed flawlessly. I personally hold Near Dark Entertainment in very high esteem and would recommend any future client to experience for themselves the degree of professionalism and expertise Near Dark Entertainment has to offer.
