Sleazy Promoter Alert

The Colorado Music Business Organization (COMBO) is warning Denver-area musicians about a concert promoter who’s allegedly ripping off area bands and falsely presenting himself as a music industry big wig.

In a statement sent to Pollstar by COMBO, Melissa Lycan, president of Whisper Fiercely artist services firm, alleges Jason “Ponce” Quintana of Evil Empire Entertainment has “taken money from a minimum of 10 bands that Whisper Fiercely is aware of” with no results and “may claim to be a part of Clear Channel, Live Nation and/or AEG Live. None of these organizations employ him or contract with him,” the statement says.
