Brian Riccardi

Head of Booking & Promotions

Brian began his professional career in the music industry as an A&R intern at Columbia Records. After graduating from Fordham University with a Major in Communications and Double Minor in Music and Economics, he continued to scout independent music in the many venues of New York City. After numerous attempts to find work at one of the major/indie labels in the city, he met Dan Melnick and began working with him as a booking agent. He views live music not only as a means to an income, but rather as a passion that he explores even when he is not "on the clock".
