Doyle-Kos Seals Front Line Deal

Brian Doyle and Rob Kos of Doyle-Kos Management have inked a deal with Irving Azoff’s Front Line Management.

Similar to a recent agreement between Azoff and Spectacle Entertainment Group, Doyle-Kos has sold Front Line a portion of its company, and Azoff will now serve as a partner. The company will continue to operate out of its current office in New York City, giving Front Line an East Coast presence.

“Front Line bought 50 percent of Doyle-Kos Management and for us the exciting thing is really two fold,” Kos told Pollstar. “Being able to take advantage of all of the assets that Front Line has can help us really do a better job and more fully realize the potential of our clients. And secondly, joining with Front Line I think our ability to sign and work with new acts is greatly enhanced – much more so than being on our own.”

Clients of Doyle-Kos Management include Daryl Hall & John Oates, Rick Springfield, and Rusted Root. Gladys Knight is a recent signing.
