Veteran record promotion man Gary Spivack, most recently with Geffen Records, has formed Right Arm Entertainment in partnership with Del Williams, a former record promoter who now produces radio show concerts. Right Arm will be a concert booking, promotion and management company, with an emphasis on radio festivals.
Spivack has been a record promoter for 17 years, with stints at Atlantic, Elektra, Capitol and most recently as national rock promotion at Geffen.
Williams once ran independent promoter Arms Division, and now is co-president of Right Arm Entertainment with Spivack. Current radio show clients include KROQ’s Inland Invasion at Hyundai Pavilion in DeVore, Calif.; HFS Festival in Washington, D.C.; Live 105 BFD at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif.; 91 Xfest in San Diego, and others.
“Right Arm’s main focus will be an exclusive concert booking provider to the key radio station festivals across the country,” Spivack tells Billboard.biz. “I’ve always been a huge fan, on both a personal and business level, of great concerts, and I want to make sure we’re able to provide the best concerts possible to the consumers, the radio stations and the artists.”
