Danny Wimmer Presents Acquires Billy Alan Productions Booking Agency

SANTA CLARITA, CA – U.S. independent festival promoter and producer Danny Wimmer Presents has acquired Billy Alan Productions, a talent booking agency for Native American casinos.   

Billy Alan Productions has been rebranded as Billy Alan 2 and will be led by President Billy Brill, an industry executive and consultant with more than 40 years working in the entertainment, interactive media and casino booking industries. Brill has been booking national talent for Native American casinos since 1999, and currently represents various casinos in California, Oregon and Mississippi. Joe Moallempour serves as Billy Alan 2’s National Casino Coordinator and both Brill and Moallempour are now fully integrated into all departments and talent booking services at DWP.

Billy Alan 2’s services include talent booking, media buying, and branding with new and established Native American casinos to develop entertainment, marketing and promotional strategies. The company has booked a wide range of Native American bands, as well as Duran Duran, Ringo Starr, Chicago, ZZ Top, Snoop Dogg, Gabriel Iglesias, The Beach Boys and Wynonna, along with comedians such as Jay Leno, Jo Koy, Sebastian Maniscalco, Don Rickles and Paul Rodriguez.

“I love being the advocate and talent buyer for Native Americans casinos,” said Brill. “My goal is to collaborate with DWP and utilize their resources to bring in top level talent to the casinos, offer better ticket prices, and ultimately bring in wider audiences – including more VIPs – to the casino shows.”

“We love the business that Billy has built and feel that our resources will help him grow and develop the platform,” said Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “Native American properties are becoming a larger part of every artist’s routing and it makes sense for DWP to expand into this space.“
