Welcome to AKB Music
AKB Music is a booking agency born of the experience and goodwill Art "A.K." Blackburn has developed over the last 25 years with artists and talent buyers in the Midwest and across the country. His love for music & dance of all kinds, combined with his experience in working with presenters demanding variety and excellence in their concert programming, led to the creation of AKB Music.
AKB Music is the Midwest’s premier traditional music agency and continues to present the region’s top artists of their respective genre. Our mission is to seek and find quality venues for those in the AKB family in which to perform, and to establish lasting relationships with promoters and artists, enhancing the success of all involved.
We specialize in great, entertaining music. Period. Bluegrass, old-time, Americana, Celtic, Cajun, gypsy, classic country, rockabilly & folk-inspired singer-songwriters. All of our artists tour coast to coast, including Canada and overseas.
AKB Music will take care of your needs in a hurry. We are kind, friendly, easy to work with and ready to take your call. We work hard to ensure win-win situations for everyone involved, because we look forward to working with you on your next event. And your next. We can also secure talent for private or corporate events, ranging from top regional entertainers to international headline acts. If we don’t have it, we’ll find it!
