Issachar Entertainment, NYC was founded in 1987 as a full service artist management company. The name Issachar was chosen as the first International artist I took to the road with was Mikey Dread, the legendary dub master from Jamaica. At the same time I was in business with and managing Murphy’s Law, The Dickies, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
Starting out as a tour manager after graduation from New York University. I worked crew gigs, played in a NYHC band The Mob and booked many NYHC gigs. Tour management evolved into full time artist management. What Issachar has become is as diverse as the city I live in…New York City. We’re open late.
Past Artists include: Gang Green, Wax, Dog Eat Dog, D-generation, Martin Page, Holly Vincent, Freddie Mac Gregor, Gravediggaz, Sevendust, New Kingdom, Reggie Gaines, Nefertiti, CkY… all of which i had some part in either being manager straight away, or tour manager. Not to mention all the CPF’s along the way from 30 years of experience touring the world.
