Best Of The West

Rich Best and Tommy Ginoza are trading geography.

Best, one of the leading promoters in Minnesota, has left the Clear Channel office in Minneapolis to join Los Angeles’ Avalon Attractions (a CCE affiliate), and will book and promote shows at venues across SoCal, including Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre and The Wiltern LG.

Ginoza heads to the now-named Ritual office in Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, Greg Siegel, who booked L.A.’s Troubadour, has joined Avalon, focusing on talent buying for clubs and theatres.
