Manistee -- Old Friends is a stunning recreation of Simon & Garfunkel’s 1981 Concert in Central Park. Simon & Garfunkel's Concert in Central Park was one of the largest and most beloved concerts of all time. Although it was attended by over 500,000 people, most of us didn't have the opportunity to attend this amazing show. This upbeat 90 minute show will take the audience back in time to that cool September night in New York City when Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel reunited for a free concert.

Changes beginning in 2017 concerning operation on 600 MHz frequencies. Beginning in 2017, the amount of TV band spectrum available for wireless microphone use is decreasing as a result of the incentive auction, which was completed on April 13, 2017. A significant portion of the TV band spectrum in the 600 MHz band, including most (but not all) of the spectrum on TV channels 38-51 (614-698 MHz), has been repurposed for the new 600 MHz service band for use by wireless services, and will not continue to be available for wireless microphone use.

We are currently booking our fall and early winter shows. If you and/or your band, are interested in performing at one of the venues we help manage entertainment for, please send a demo or link to,

The very best way for you to be notified when we have gig opportunities is to let us know about you. By connecting with us, you will be given the first opportunity to perform at a venue we help manage entertainment for.
