Three Concert Promoters form Alliance;
Open offices in Nashville

Nashville, TN – Gary Weinberger, President of Red Mountain Entertainment, announced today the formation of a strategic alliance between concert promoters Red Mountain Entertainment (RME), Blue Deuce Entertainment (BDE) and Green Machine Concerts (GMC). New offices will be located at 1028 B 18th Street on historic Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee. New phone number is 615-320-7800.

“Over the years John Ruffino, Russell Doussan, Jim Green, Jay Wilson, Jill Wheeler and I have developed many meaningful relationships with artists, managers and agents based in Nashville,” Weinberger said. “In order to maximize the services we provide to our clients, now seems the right time to have a more prominent presence in Nashville.“

“The people we work with in Nashville have become such an important part of our business opening an office there makes great sense to us,” said Russell Doussan, president of BDE.

“I have worked with Russell, John and Gary over the years and look forward to collaborating with them and expanding our promotional footprint,” said Jim Green.

It was announced last month by Dale Morris and Marc Oswald, co-owners of Fontanel, the hiring of RME as the promoter/operator of concerts and events at The Woods at Fontanel. “Having the resources and contacts Russell and Jim have developed the three of our company’s will work to help The Woods at Fontanel achieve it’s goals,” said John Ruffino, a partner at RME.
