Tickets are $150 and are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lead-the-way-dance-to-unites-5th-annual-benefit-tickets-43849071754.

The evening will include a performance by Dance to Unite students from PS64 and Emmy Award-winning journalist Susan Farkas presents a mini-documentary. All proceeds support Dance to Unite’s critical work in offering free multicultural, dance classes to inner-city public school kids in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Chinatown, Chelsea, East Harlem, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

This year, Dance to Unite proudly honors Allen Kovac, CEO and President of 10th Street Entertainment, one of the world’s leading music management companies. He will be joined by featured speaker, Igal Perry, Artistic Director of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company and founder of Peridance, named one of the best dance schools by Time Out Magazine.

ALLEN KOVAC
CEO/Founder, Tenth Street Entertainment/The Eleven Seven Music Group
In his more than four-decade-long career in the music business, Allen Kovac has been an independent maverick and entrepreneur, a pioneering, self-taught executive who not only predicted music industry trends, but put them into practice. At his core, though, the record company management firm/music publisher founder is at heart an artist advocate, one who makes sure to maximize that talent through creative marketing, promotion and a big data-based approach. As a leading voice in the indie community, Kovac is involved as a committee member for A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) and has been instrumental in working with international trade organization Merlin to improve relations with the major streaming services.

Born in Israel to Holocaust survivor parents who fought in the country war for independence in 1948, Kovac moved with his family to Houston at three, revealing his business skills when he joined with his older (by a year) brother Phillip to book acts like ZZ Top and Michael Murphey to his high school. Dropping out of the University of Oregon in Eugene after a year, he convinced a local Chinese restaurant owner to let him use the venue to promote rock bands there at night. The Place became a vital tour stop for groups between San Francisco and Portland, with Allen and Phillip’s company, TDA (Totally Dedicated to Artists) Productions bringing in such acts as Tom Petty, Talking Heads and Elvis Costello to the 500-capacity room between 1974 and 1984. “Back then there was a culture of music,” he recalls. “People like Ken Kesey and the Grateful Dead… It was a true community.”

In 1985 Allen created Tenth Street Entertainment, an artist management company in LA that included Richard Marx, Duran Duran, The Cranberries, Motley Crue and Meatloaf. By 1995 Allen had an interest in branching out from traditional music marketing and created a joint venture with DDB Needham and Strategic Research. These companies were media buying and consumer research ventures for the music industry. Highlights include Garth Brooks, Meatloaf Bat Out Of Hell 2, and the Beatles. He continued expanding management to The Bee Gees, Blondie, Luther Vandross, Yes, and En Vogue.

In 2006 Allen founded E7LG – The Eleven Seven Music Group to give artists the integrated world wide marketing campaigns and direct distribution with ITunes, Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube and Deezer.

While the major labels tend to their quarterly billing with a steady diet of hip-hop and pop, Kovac has doubled down on rock and artist development, which he’s studied for nearly 45 years now, recognizing what it takes to succeed, and applying principles both old school and up-to-date.

From Richard Marx to Nothing More, the Santa Antonio, TX band which just garnered three Grammy nominations earlier this year, Allen Kovac has had his finger on the pulse of the music business, and he’s not about to let up.

Allen is currently co-producing the movie “The Dirt” (based the on biography of the legendary rock band Mötely Crü) with Julie and Rick Yorn for Netflix, and a musical based on Nikki Sixx’s autobiography “The Heroin Diaries.”

Allen Kovac continues to break new ground. “Whatever I don’t know, I learn,” he says simply. Call him a quick learner.
