Steve Pavey has opened Pleasure Grove
Productions, a booking and management
consulting firm, to help musicians achieve
their goals and realize their dreams.
What makes PGP different? First of all,
after being involved in the music business
since 1970, Steve has experience on both
sides of the table - the creative and the
business sides. As a musician, he opened
shows for several international acts, such
as Bread, Steppenwolf and Three Dog
Night to name a few and recorded for A&M
Records, the largest independent label in the
world. He worked with James Griffin and Rupert
Holmes, Larry Groce, Climax and Looking Glass
among others. His advice was an integral part of
enabling the Crystal Fire Band to sign with ABC
Dunhill for recording and publishing.
In Minneapolis, he worked with
BHE and GMA, learning booking,
promotion and management.
The music business has changed
considerably since then. The Age
of the internet and social media
offers both new opportunities to
exploit and new pitfalls to avoid.
Musicians generally need an unbiased
professional working for them who will
tell them what they need to hear, not just
what they want to hear. If you feel frustrated
