3 years ago we had a simple idea: use our skills to support people making great music. In that short time, I can't believe how much we've grown. 6 amazing bands on our roster, great employees on the team, countless shows across the country, a weekly podcast...and so much more in between. Of course the biggest thanks goes to all the fans for listening and supporting our artists, our friends and family for supporting us, and our clients themselves for being so dedicated to what they love. Where will we be in 3 more years? Let's find out.
Happy Birthday, Cigar City MGMT.
