Rosebud Artists over the years

Some of the organizations we support

The Rosebud Agency ceased booking activities as of January 2014 but we're still working on ongoing and special projects.

Current / Recent projects:
We're still overseeing music related business for the estate of the late Captain Beefheart (Rhino box set was released to unanimous rave reviews 11/18/14).

We're also very busy sorting and documenting materials from our 40 year history (including 45,000 contracts) for archiving at the Southern Folklife Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Thanks to all our collaborators since 1976, with special appreciation for our intentionally short list of Rosebud artists who, during their time with Rosebud, earned:
  • 116 Grammy nominations and 28 Grammy wins
  • 9 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions
  • 6 Grammy Lifetime Achievement or Trustee Awards
  • 16 Blues Hall of Fame inductions (plus a 2014 induction for Rosebud Founder, Mike Kappus)
  • and for an unprecedented 4 Blues Foundation awards for Manager / Agency of the year
A sincere THANK YOU to all the presenters, managers, agents, record labels, media, Rosebud staff and all those associated with The Rosebud Agency over the years.
And a very special thanks to the select group of artists we have represented including:
