Our Story- we want you to know us and what we stand for:
Our company was founded in 1997 in an unfinished basement on an old kitchen table, with one phone, a laptop, and a burning passion for music. We have grown from one event to a hundred, to over a thousand, and our bookings have now spanned the globe. Our success today is because of good people like you, and the dedication and hard work of our superstar team members, both present and past. And oh yes, that unfinished basement? We have out grown that now...but we still have that kitchen table in use!
Built with a passion for the arts, The Bazel Group, Inc. has become a trusted resource in the arts and entertainment world.
How passionate for the arts are we? Passion might just be an understatement. Our staff members have actually been known to get teary eyed at the first notes of a sound check, we get goose bumps when a comedian is on fire with their crowd, and we stand in reverent awe at the powerful messages speakers deliver to their audiences. As the great Stevie Wonder once said we are “signed, sealed, delivered” to the world of performing arts.

We were programmed in our infancy by the Sinatra records swinging out from our parent’s hi-fi's. In our youth we were members of the untold army of garage bands performing in neighborhoods across the country. In our college years, we were first in line to buy concert tickets, visit the comedy club, or attend a lecture series.
We didn’t get into the arts for the sake of money, far from it. If the truth were known, we were summoned into it. Actually, it was more of a calling from deep within. This calling demanded to be answered and here we are today, smack dab in the middle of the arts – concerts, comedians and speakers. From the back of hotel ballrooms, to the sides of stages across the country, you will find us there, clipboards in hand and a sparkle in our eyes – thankful for the pleasure of being a part of such a beautiful industry as the performing arts.
Oh sure, our parents wanted us to get a ‘real job’ in the traditional business world, but we simply couldn’t. We don’t know how to build airplanes, we can’t engineer tall buildings, and we are clueless about farm equipment. As noble professions as they are, they are simply not our specialty. The Bazel Group, Inc. is passionate about, the deep down drop-to-your-knees-and-thank-the-heavens passionate about the performing arts.
We look forward to serving you with concerts, comedians and speakers for your next event. We will be there - look for us backstage with the clipboard in hand, and a sparkle in our eyes!
