Event description

Description

In typical WHO KNEW fashion, we are pleased to deliver a very unique, one time only event featuring two of the most prolific and important figures in live music today - Peter Shapiro and Jay Sweet.

Independent music entrepreneur Peter Shapiro’s eclectic career path has encompassed a range of celebrated projects. His experience operating the iconic rock club, Wetlands in New York City inspired his recent venue projects: opening multiple Brooklyn Bowls and the restoration of The Capitol Theatre. Among many other music career highlights, he was also responsible for getting the surviving 4 members of the Grateful Dead back together for the 2015 Fare Thee Well series of concerts which included Phish's Trey Anastasio and others. Peter is also the publisher of Relx Magazine.

Jay Sweet is the Executive Director of Newport Festivals, which includes the iconic Newport Folk Festival and Newport Jazz Festival.

These two renegades of live music have never appeared on the same stage before. Come hear them swap stories about the deals they've done, the events they've promoted and learn about some of the deals that slipped away. They will inform and entertain you about the modern music industry.
