Winners Announced on February 22, 2023, at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, Calif. – (November 30, 2022) Day After Day Productions, founded by Seth Shomes, has been nominated for this year’s Independent Booking Agency of the Year award for its representation of more than 30 clients across a wide variety of genres, including 98 DegreesAaron LewisBrian WilsonDeal Or No Deal – Live!Flo RidaJeff Bridges & The AbidersMatt FraserMissy ElliottStaindT.I.The CommodoresTony OrlandoTyler HenryWarWayne Newton, and more. Nominees for the 34th Annual Pollstar Awards, which will be announced during the Pollstar Live! Conference at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, Feb. 21-23, have been revealed in more than 45 categories among the concert industry’s top tours, artists, venues, executives, support companies, and more.

The industry-voted nomination was clinched from the intense efforts Day After Day Productions has shown through the company’s new reincarnation – and with less than two years in operation. Industry peers have recognized their immediate excellence in delivering quality entertainment through a time of sharp instability in the touring market.

Longtime agent and industry veteran, Seth Shomes, Founder and CEO, relaunched Day After Day Productions (DADP) in April 2021. DADP operated independently through 2014 until Shomes joined The Agency Group – and then UTA through that acquisition – and opened the first-ever dedicated Casino Divisions at each agency. Now, as then, Shomes and his team will focus on connecting clients with opportunities across the entire industry and all types of venues. And, with five “Agent of The Year ” awards under his belt at the Casino Entertainment Awards in Las Vegas, there will be continued expertise in the casino and soft ticket bookings for DADP’s roster.

“Receiving a nomination for Independent Agency of the Year in our first full year of business is extremely humbling,” Shomes reflects. “I am very proud of DADP’s growth in such a short time, and I cannot thank our talented clients enough for their loyalty and friendship. I am grateful to those in the industry that nominated DADP, and I look forward to 2023 and beyond.”

In addition, Day After Day Productions has paired with The Yucaipa Companies to help grow Danny Wimmer Presents’ Talent Services division. DWP is one of the largest independent producers of destination music festivals in America and DWPTS, a division of Danny Wimmer Presents, focuses on the casino and fair business.

Among his other accolades, Shomes is an accomplished leader and recognized expert in the casino entertainment world after establishing himself as a pioneer by becoming the first agent to build a platform for non-traditional entertainment programming to thrive in the gaming industry. Throughout his career, Shomes has received praise from the highest level of casino executives, talent buyers, artists, managers, and record and PR executives for his ingenuity in developing unique marketing strategies that have continually proven successful for all parties.
