About

Formed in January 2004 by investor and concert promoter Keith Mahler and entertainment veteran Peter Kauff, Premier Concerts has become the largest independent concert promoter in Connecticut. Kauff passed away in December, 2013 and is deeply missed. In 2015 Premier Concerts acquired local indie concert promoter Manic Presents, allowing both companies to expand and promote a wider array of music throughout the region. Premier Concerts currently promotes major artists as well as up-and-comers at various venues throughout Connecticut, currently including the recently-opened College Street Music Hall (New Haven), The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts (Hartford), The Palace Theater (Waterbury), The Shubert Theatre (New Haven), The Space (Hamden), The Ballroom at The Outer Space (Hamden), Cafe Nine (New Haven), BAR (New Haven), seasonally outdoors at the Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center (Simsbury), and more.
