Dan Steinberg from the Promoter 101 Podcast and Emporium Presents has been working on something special for this year’s Billboard Live Music Summit.
The newly minted Live Nation promoter will sit down with Bernie Cahill, co-manager of Dead & Company and acts like Dwight Yoakam and The Lumineers, to talk about his life as a former Nashville attorney on Music Row and how he jumped into the management game with firm Roar before launching Activist Artists Management earlier this year.
While at Roar, Cahill and Matt Maher led the department that managed Zac Brown Band, growing them into a stadium act with dozens of sell outs including the all-time attendance record for three consecutive shows at Fenway, as well as being the first act to play and sell out Coors Field.
At Activist, Cahill currently oversees the careers of Ben Rector, Bob Weir, Clare Bowen, Dwight Yoakam, Empire of the Sun, Frankie Ballard, Grateful Dead, The Lumineers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Nahko & Medicine for the People. Cahill, along with Dead & Company’s co-managers Irving Azoff/Steve Moir, has overseen the rise of Dead & Company into a record-breaking act that has headlined iconic stadiums across the country including Folsom Field, Autzen Stadium, Citi Field, Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium, and broke Wrigley Field’s all-time attendance record in 2017.
