Randy Rogers is a pioneering spirit in music and in business. With 10 albums — including Randy’s solo project Hold My Beer: Volume 1 recorded with best friend Wade Bowen — the Randy Rogers Band is one of the biggest names in the hard-ticket touring circuit, consistently selling out venues including The Troubadour in Los Angeles and Terminal 5 in Manhattan. His creativity, leadership and business vision spawned the launch of a new artist management company, Big Blind Management, named for Rogers’ commitment to being in the game. “If you’re going to succeed,” says Rogers, “you have to be committed to being in the game. We are.”
“Starting a management company is something that I have been thinking about for quite some time,” shares Rogers. “Because our band tours so much, I have the opportunity to meet many talented people on the road. My goal is to help some of these artists in understanding the lesson I learned a long time ago from my friend Kent Finlay: ‘There’s music and then there’s the music business.’ Robin Schoepf, my partner in the management company, has been my personal day-to-day manager for more than 13 years. We have seen it all and are interested in working alongside artists we believe in.”
The New Braunfels, Texas-based company’s first signing is Red Shahan.
“Red has a uniqueness in his approach to songwriting and performing that we feel will soon propel him into the spotlight he deserves. He’s one of the guys that will make great records for some time to come,” continues Rogers.
Artists moving under the new company’s charge from Ro-Jo Management are Seth James, Jamie Lin Wilson and Randy Rogers. (The Randy Rogers Band will continue to be managed by 377/Red Light out of Nashville.)
