You'd probably like to know something about me and Candide Entertainment...
From 1994 to 1999, I managed and guided the career of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, an eight-piece punk-swing band, from a regional to international act while coordinating their booking, road managing them for three & a half years, running their record label and putting together their merchandising. I conceived the idea for Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin' Hits of the Cherry Poppin Daddies which was originally released on CPD's label, Space Age Bachelor Pad Records, and eventually got the band signed to MOJO/Universal records. The CD peaked at #17 on the Billboard 200, spending a total of 53 weeks on the charts and went on to sell over 2-million units in the United States.
I left the music business in 1999 and returned in 2005, forming Candide Entertainment Group as a full-service management and booking service. My goal is to help musicians build careers which will sustain themselves for year's to come through strategic planning in releasing their music and in touring.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Howard Libes
PS. I am currently not looking for any unsolicited clients...thanks
