Indie concert promoter Patchwork Presents has named veteran agent Anthony Paolercio, formerly of UTA, as partner, and has announced the addition of South Shore Music Hall in Long Island to its venue portfolio.

Patchwork President Dave Poe says in a statement, “Anthony and I cut our teeth together at The Agency Group over 15 years ago and I’m very excited to have him join Patchwork and our mission of supporting artists and bringing high quality entertainment to independent venues nationwide.”  Dave continues, “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with the South Shore Music Hall on Long Island, so close to our home base in NYC.  They cater to artists’ needs first and foremost, with a family atmosphere and an amazing team.  We look forward to growing their business and making this a must stop for tours in the area.”
Paolercio adds, “I consider Dave Poe my closest friend and colleague in the business. I trust him completely, which is the most important part of building a strong and enduring partnership.  There aren’t many agents turned promoters in our business, so I feel that I have a unique perspective to offer.  During this uncertain time, it’s imperative that everyone in our business come together to help one another.  We want to continue moving forward with that positive mindset and utilize Patchwork to offer Artists and their teams the best possible experience from start to finish.”
Poe launched Patchwork Presents with Ineffable Music Group in early January, overseeing talent buying duties and consulting work for venues nationally.  In March, they announced the addition of two major venues (TempleLive Cleveland Masonic & Salt Lake City’s Soundwell) and a partnership with Michael Horowitz & Universatile Music. 
Ineffable President Thomas Cussins adds, “Anthony has always been one of our favorite agents, fighting for his clients while also remembering it’s not a zero sum game and that everyone has to make money for the entire business to be healthy. We know he’s going to be a factor on the buying side for Patchwork in the years to come.  South Shore Music Hall has a storied history on the east coast and has always gone above and beyond for our artists to make them feel at home.  Looks like 2020 finally got something right!” 
The recently renovated South Shore Music Hall at Mulcahy’s in Long Island, N.Y., was the site of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s press conference on behalf of the Save Our Stages Act, which Poe has supported as co-founder of the Independent Promoter Alliance.
