Hank LoConti, Founder/Owner/Chairman, of Agora, said: “We’ve been very successful in promoting live entertainment to our members, and offering young artists an open platform to engage directly with their audience. Many major artists have played in our clubs, before and after making their “big break”. Yebotv has a truly innovative, unique service solution, and I am delighted to partner with them”.
Markus Jokinen, Founder of Yebotv, said: “Agora is an icon in the music industry worldwide, and in the USA. They continue to be forerunners in developing the music business. I am convinced that we can create an outstanding experience for their whole community – audience, artists alike. Not only in live broadcasting, but also engaging in all forms of interaction within their networking community.”
Agora was founded in 1966 in USA, and quickly established itself as a forerunner for live entertainment, especially music, promotion. It has been a launchpad for many big name artists like The Police, U2, Meat Loaf, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Bruce Springsteen, ZZ Top and others. Agora has been voted No 1. Rock Club by the Billboard Magazine and the Rolling Stone Magazine.
