Meet Barry Weisblatt, Founder
An influential veteran in the live entertainment and event production business, Barry Weisblatt started his music-inspired professional journey 33 years ago after he encountered an impressive little college band from Amherst, Massachusetts. Weisblatt’s professional career began in the mailroom of the legendary talent agency, Associated Booking Corporation. After three months, Weisblatt was given a phone, desk, rolodex and instructions to start booking one of his heroes, the great B.B. King. In 1990, Weisblatt joined the talent agency, Artists and Audience Entertainment. The company had two clients: Guns N’ Roses and Paul McCartney. Weisblatt soon discovered a young vocal sensation, Joan Osborne. Two years later, Joan’s debut album ‘Relish’ was nominated for eight Grammy Awards.
Weisblatt spent the next 10 years as a talent agent for Gov’t Mule, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Joan Osborne and many others. In 2000, Weisblatt accepted a job with New York Concert Promoter John Scher at Metropolitan Entertainment, where Weisblatt ran the Corporate Events Division until they were sold to their biggest rival, LiveNation. In 2002, Weisblatt combined his unique credentials and creative vision to open WhiteLeaf Entertainment Group. Today, Barry has developed WhiteLeaf into what is considered to be one of the premier, boutique event production companies in the country.
