517 Entertainment: Michigan’s Entertainment Company
517 Entertainment, LLC is a music entertainment company that is based in the Lansing area founded by Grand Ledge native Samuel "Uncle $@m" Brooks in January 2010. Mr. Brooks put together 517 Entertainment in order to help local musicians further expand their careers without the use of a major company after his experience networking with other local musicians and recording studios. Unlike other local labels, 517 Entertainment doesn’t discriminate against the genre(s) that an individual does. Mr. Brooks did this because he enjoys a variety of music and sees more opportunities available at his disposal compared to the other labels that will only focus on one or two genres.
517 Entertainment leans mainly towards rock, jazz, country, fusion, Latin, Celtic, pop, singer-songwriter, and Christian/gospel. All of the musicians that 517 Entertainment focuses on are based in Michigan, predominately in the Greater Lansing area. Today, Mr. Brooks is currently looking at musicians in the Detroit area since the company’s expansion earlier in 2013, along with the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo areas. One of the core values for 517 Entertainment is to keep at least 90% of its business investments in the State of Michigan by working with local and state-based businesses along with only allowing performances and products to be served outside the State.
We are asking for your support by becoming a proud sponsor of 517 Entertainment and helping us raise $5,000 for the 2016 year. Money raised will go to cover new equipment as we expand into new services, new products, transportation to events, promotions, projects, performances, and other small expenses along the way.
Your sponsorship of any amount will help 517 Entertainment to continue to help local talent, as well as, promoting Michigan based entertainment. By doing this, we will continue to represent Lansing and the State of Michigan with pride. Please help us reach our goal.
517 Entertainment is Your Entertainment Company
Becoming a sponsor of 517 Entertainment is good business. You will receive exposure in the Lansing area through our printed programs, social media, and community promotions.
