Leading Midwest promoter MAMMOTH, INC. has announced another new partnership, this time with industry veteran and former Live Nation exec Tommy Ginoza and his newly formed Los Angeles-based company Sugar Monkey. Additional details on the new venture will be announced in the coming months.
Ginoza got his start at Goldenvoice in 1996 and his experience includes stints at Live Nation, Universal Concerts and House of Blues Concerts. Throughout his career he’s worked with artists of all genres at venues from local clubs to arenas, as well as on North American tours.
“I have known and worked with Jeff and Josh for nearly 20+ years and we have become good friends during that time,” Tommy Ginoza says. “In my career, I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with several great people who have become great friends. I have always admired the work ethic, integrity and entrepreneurial drive of Jeff, Josh and Streigs (Sean Striegel) and I’m thrilled that I get to continue that by joining forces with them and the entire Mammoth team.”
“Tommy is a reputable talent and booking executive and an expert in the event operations field,” MAMMOTH’s Jeff Fortier says. “When he shared that he was creating his own company, Sugar Monkey, we knew this would be a great opportunity to closely work with Tommy. We’re excited to be partnering with him.”
Launched in 2006, MAMMOTH produces a wide array of live events including concerts and festivals, as well as national tours. MAMMOTH’s events range in size from small club shows to amphitheaters and arena shows (including more than 50 historic indoor theaters). The company is headed by Jeff Fortier and Josh Hunt, who together have over 55 years of combined music industry experience. With home offices in Lawrence, KS and Kansas City, MO, MAMMOTH produces more than 1,000 concerts and live events across the country per year.
