ABOUT DAVID BELENZON
On any given day, David Belenzon fields
several phone calls from talent asking for his advice.
The reason is clear to those who've worked with him
before: He just understands talent.
Including some truly eclectic acts, David's clientele
transcends the world of entertainment to deserve the
moniker of "artists." His passion and dedication to
bringing the best quality entertainment to whatever
project he's working on has made him a first-rate
manager and talent/event consultant, with whom agents
and producers love to collaborate. "David Belenzon has
always been a man of his word," says Bill Phebus,
Managing Partner at Williams Gerard Productions.
"Integrity has always been the benchmark of David
David's dedication to clients is evidenced by his many
long-term relationships. That's why buyers keep coming
back. He was asked to provide a client to host the first
English-language gala for the Montreal Comedy Festival;
the results were so good, he's provided dozens of
performers since. With David, "You know you're in the
hands of an expert," says Richard Aaron, president of
BizBash Media. "He brings forth the highest quality in
communication along with delivery of great artists.
There's an incredible level of craft he's aligned
Producers and agents know that when they want something
special or "impossible," their search can be completed
with a single phone call. For example, David arranged a
massive three-city extravaganza for a Japanese
corporation with simultaneous performances by Julio
Iglesias, Shirley MacLaine (in an extremely rare
corporate date) and Ray Charles. For In-N-Out Burger's
50th anniversary celebration, David arranged the first
ever corporate show by legendary singer John Fogerty.
David began exploring the world of entertainment as a
student at San Diego State, creating a series of free
concerts that included the first West Coast performance
by Sha Na Na. (Bringing things full circle, 25 years
later David became Jon "Bowzer" Bauman's manager.) Upon
graduation, David signed his first client, illusionist
Harry Blackstone Jr., putting the deal together for the
longest running magic show in Broadway history.
In 1990, David produced a series of television specials
in Japan that Bill Larsen, then editor of Genii
magazine called, "The most prestigious shows in the
history of magic."
That passion for quality is clearly evident in David's
productions for the casino, amusement and corporate
industries, such as Masters of Illusion and
International Festival of Magic. David's producer
client, YLS Entertainment, is renowned for their twenty
year track record of high-energy custom shows at casinos
and theme parks while another client, Advanced
Entertainment Group, has an amazing twenty-five year
track record as the premiere producer of ice shows for
theme parks and casinos. Recently David expanded his
roster of artists into the world of symphony and
orchestra attractions and now represents such brand name
attractions as the "World Famous" Royal Lipizzaner
David still finds himself thrilled by new talent. Please
take a tour of our artists and shows, representing a
diversity of attractions that appeal to any audience.
New, cutting-edge clients, coupled with David's longtime
roster, are continuously pushing toward groundbreaking
innovation, which is why David is, in his own words,
"Incredibly excited about the future of entertainment."
