“Near Dark Entertainment has been an asset to our entertainment planning from the time we acquired the Bally’s property in November of 2020. Managing multiple entertainment venues within one property is no small feat and Near Dark pulls it off seamlessly month after month. They have their finger on the pulse of the entertainment in the region and supply us with a great variety to fit every venue. From DJs to bands and special performances – Near Dark Entertainment books it all.”

John Happersett Director of Marketing Bally’s Atlantic City

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Near Dark Entertainment for several years, most recently at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia and in previous markets before that. The team at Near Dark is extremely professional and has helped to secure great, energizing talent – from DJs, models, bands and emcees – that match the tastes and preferences of our loyal guests. At Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia, we’ve trusted Near Dark to power the entertainment at Center Bar since January 2023. It’s no easy task as Center Bar sits in the middle of the action and sets the tone for our gaming floor. Near Dark’s bookings have supplied the energy we need to make our guests’ experience at Live! Philadelphia fun, positive, upbeat and memorable. I’m grateful to have Near Dark as a partner – they have proven themselves indispensable for our entertainment needs.

I’ve known the President of Near Dark Entertainment for 8 years. If you are searching for the best entertainment professionals in the industry look no further. Near Dark Entertainment provides superior entertainment services. In such a fast pace industry they give each of their clients individual attention. Near Dark Entertainment specializes in booking headlining entertainment, corporate events, and has the best catalogue of DJs in the Northeast. In my personal experience I’ve used them for everything. One of my favorite events we worked together on was our Seven Star Signature Event at The Harrah’s Resort Pool. The theme of the event was Under The Sea. Near Dark Entertainment went above and beyond to make this vision come true. This event had everything from mermaids in floating bubbles to a grand finale water dance show put on by the top synchronized swimming team. Our guests were amazed by this event! I have the great pleasure of working with them and recommending this company to any potential new clients.

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.
