About

SPUNE can most easily be defined as a music production and entertainment promotions company. Spune serves as promoter, event producer, marketing and design house, artist development company, record label and booking agency. It is the desire of Spune to produce innovative, reputable events and to promote quality independent artists. Our purpose is to contribute to the development of the arts by heightening the awareness of both the event and the artist.

What People Are Saying

Best Talent Buyer 2013 – Dallas Observer

“If you attended nothing but shows booked by Spune, you’d still manage an impressive survey of North Texas music. You’d also be busy — the Dallas-based operation, now in its 16th year, books roughly 10 shows every month. You’d split your time pretty evenly between Fort Worth, Denton and Dallas, and you’d see everything from local weirdos to arena indie. Stick with it long enough and you’d find yourself at dark little clubs and in big open fields (Spune’s festival itinerary has expanded impressively in the last couple years). The company is also probably the most restless contributor to music in the area, operating a label, marketing shows and bands and generally finding more and more ways to get people to go to concerts.”

“Spune is praised for booking the most compelling local bills and star-studded showcases in Dallas, Ft. Worth, Denton and North Texas and has the reputation for throwing the region’s most epic seasonal shindigs…” Dallas Observer

“Spune’s contributions to the Fort Worth scene and hipster cachet are manifold and unmatched by any 10 club owners, booking agents, bloggers, journalists, investors, and supermodel nuns combined.” Fort Worth Weekly

“Local music kingpin, Impresario for all things, The city’s most compelling local bills, Star-studded showcases, Spune throws great “welcome to the music scene” shows.” Dallas Observer

“Best Booking Agent” Fort Worth Weekly

“Best Record Label – 2011” Dallas Observer

“The folks at Spune have not only established themselves as a leading local label and promotion company. They’ve also become quite the hosts.” Dallas Observer

“‘The One To Watch’ Who is this guy? Why is he suddenly doing some of the coolest things in DFW?” Dallas Observer

“Spune-fuls of greatness” QUICK / Dallas Morning News

“A Spune Christmas makes “North Texas’ top five live shows of 2009″ Pegasus News
