About All American Music
How It All Began
The idea for the company, that would later become All American Entertainment, was hatched in 2002. Our founder, Greg Friedlander, was working as a sports agent in New York City, a position in which he dealt with some of the top speakers bureaus, advertising agencies, and public relations firms. He quickly realized there was a gap in the market- a power disparity between agents and organizations wanting to work with high profile talent. Deals tended to be one-sided and significantly in favor of the talent. Recognizing and rejecting the inevitable conflict of interest when a company tries to represent both the talent buyer and the talent themselves, Greg decided to start a business that exclusively focused on representing the interests of talent buyers.
Thanks to 15 years of exponential growth, All American Entertainment is one of the largest full-service talent booking agencies in the world today. We exclusively represent the interests of event professionals and planners to identify and secure high-profile speakers, celebrities, and entertainers for personal appearances, speaking engagements, and endorsements. Our team has helped thousands of the most respected companies and organizations secure popular speakers and corporate entertainment for a wide range of functions, including: keynote speaking engagements, promotional campaigns, trade shows, sales meetings, fundraisers, commercials, satellite media tours, and live performances. We have had the privilege to represent more than half of the Fortune 500, over 300 Universities, and several of the top associations, meeting planners and non-profits, resulting in 4,000+ bookings in more than 48 countries. Thanks to our success, AAE has grown to employ an amazing team of 30 dedicated professionals.
