Persistent Management Presents Latin/Pop/Rock Artist Showcase Concert
Oct 21, 2009

 
On Wednesday, October 21 at 8:00pm in the Concert Hall, Persistent Management, founded by MI grad Eric Knight, presents a special artist showcase concert featuring four artists who embody the current culture-shaping amalgamation of Latin, pop and rock. This event is free and open to the public.


MI alumni set to perform at the concert include Knight himself as well as musicians performing with Latin rocker Ignacio Val (guitarist Marcos Gonzales, drummer Alex Moscatelly); Chasing Saints (lead guitarist/songwriter Michael Elsner, rhythm guitarist Tristan Whaley); and Octavio Red (guitarist Chris Declerq).

After graduating from MI’s Music Business Program, Knight established Persistent Management as a full-service artist management company. Aside from the MI alumni talent represented, other MI grads on the Persistent team include Krystal Carlon, Brenda Hernandez and Trevin Miller.

Describing why he chose to have the showcase at Musicians Institute, Knight said, "MI gave me the tools I needed to start this company and so it’s great to able to come back here and play a show like this that will hopefully inspire current students to do the same."
