Ground Control Touring

About Us

Ground Control Touring is a boutique booking agency founded in the year 2000 by Eric Dimenstein and Jim Romeo. We currently offer exclusive North American tour booking from offices in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. We also represent many of our clients in international territories including Asia, Australia, and South America.

We are a highly selective company that takes pride in providing our clients with every opportunity that other agencies can provide but with a level of focus and attention that is unique to a company of our size. Unlike some agencies, we do not split the country into territories; instead each agent works exclusively with his or her clients and their representatives to foster long lasting and healthy relationships with promoters around the world while facilitating responsible agreements for all varieties of live shows. Our company works closely with other agencies of all sizes, and we know we can go above and beyond for our clients in seeking out the best opportunities for them. We thrive on honest, open, and direct communication between our clients and their agents, in order to ensure that the artists’ wishes are executed to the best of our ability.

Ground Control Touring wants to work together with the best and brightest musicians around to help develop them into career artists. We maintain a tightly curated roster of bands, allowing our agents to have a dedicated relationship with every one of their respective clients. Our industry is rapidly changing, and the smartest artists are the ones taking time to make decisions that will serve them for years to come. Many of our clients have been with their agents since the early days of their careers, and it is our belief that our focused roster and hands-on approach with our clients and their affairs is the key to the longevity of those relationships. We strive to ensure that our artists’ careers can be creative, financially rewarding, and most importantly, fun.
