Over 50 years of music industry experience make Michael Gelardi one of the most esteemed and trusted name among international entertainment agencies.

An Entertainer
Throughout his career, Michael has not only organised events for prestigious names but also had first-hand experience of the world of the performer. He began his foray into entertainment as a professional musician, arranger and composer in the late-1960s/early- 1970s. Following on from there, he began working with - and eventually became managing director of - various entertainment agencies.

An Innovator
In 1990, he co-founded Jazz FM, the UK's first jazz radio station. During this decade, he founded Grosvenor Television Productions Ltd, which later became part of Granada Plc. In 1996, Michael left Granada to realise his ambition of forming an event organiser "super- team", quickly establishing himself as a leading force in the European entertainment and events industries. He also won the contract to exclusively supply all entertainment to Her Majesty’s British Armed Forces throughout the world. This was the first time in the history of the British Forces that this service was outsourced to a private company. Most recently, as Head of Michael Gelardi Associates, he has produced a number of corporate events and private functions for multi-national companies including Sony, Motorola and New York Life Assurance.

A Celebrator of Talent
For many years, Michael has been a respected name, considered one of the few truly internationally experienced operators in the events and entertainment industry. Over the years, his companies have organised concerts and festivals featuring, among others, Prince, Bryan Adams, Take That, Katherine Jenkins, Tony Bennett and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. He has produced over 800 events at such illustrious venues as The Royal Albert Hall in London, Stirling Castle in Scotland, The Pierre Hotel in New York, The SBM Casino in Monte Carlo and Hilton International Hotels.
