As 2014 comes to a close, we’d like to take a moment and look back on this past year. Given these tough economic times, we are very fortunate to have the success we’ve had. JKB Entertainment Group, the publisher of Limelight Magazine, booked a total of 15 shows in 2014. Amazingly, we sold out 11 of them, while three did between 93% and 98% attendance and only one sold below 90%. As for Limelight Magazine, our annual music awards was once again more successful than the previous year in terms of participation. We received more nominations than ever before and a whopping 44,906 people voted in our online poll, which is nearly 10,000 more people than the previous year. Furthermore, our website continues to be a popular destination for music lovers around the world.
At this time, we’d like to thank everyone who supported us in 2014. Whether it was purchasing a ticket to a show or even sharing a post on Facebook, we are extremely grateful and never take our success for granted. We’d like to offer a special thanks to our family and friends for believing in us, our small but dedicated staff, and the venues where we book our shows, along with their personnel and volunteers.
As we look ahead to 2015, we will continue to bring top notch talent to New England and take a few risks along the way. We’re already in the planning stages for our 7th annual Limelight Magazine Music Awards and have some exciting things in the works. Lastly, we’re very close to launching a sister publication to Limelight called Press Pass Magazine that will be your all access to pass to pop culture and the entertainment world, covering everything from movies and television to video games, animation and more. A very special thank you to our Indiegogo donors and to Leah Astore for collaborating with us on this project and for sharing our vision and excitement.
Happy New Year!
Jay & Katie
