Galaxy Entertainments is a non profit events and music promotion agency. It is also an homage to the leading 1960’s booking agency Galaxy Entertainments Ltd.
History of Galaxy Entertainments Ltd
Galaxy Entertainments Ltd was a booking agency back in the 1960’s, handling well known bands such as the Birds, Small Faces, Amen Corner, The Move, Nashville Teens, The Attack, The Dimples and many more artists such as Pink Floyd and Love Affair, who were not signed to Galaxy, but obtained tour work and other gigs via this top agency. Today, you can still find the odd Galaxy Entertainments contract on the internet that have become much sought after memorabilia.
The original owner was Ron King who ran the agency from about 1965 through to about 1968 when it was taken over by Don Arden, the well known Impresario, also known as the Al Capone of Pop. In recent times people may remember him as Sharon Osbourne’s father. Back in the sixties Don managed a number of named artists, including sixties Mod band Small Faces. Many of the artists were also handled by Galaxy Entertainments Ltd who’s key booking staff Sue Rose and Tony Burfield worked in an office on the same floor as Don’s management company based at 52-55 Carnaby Street. In 1967 when the Small Faces left Don Arden’s management, Galaxy moved to 7 Denmark Street in the heart of Tin Pan Alley, just a few doors along from The Move’s management office and Regent Sound recording studio.
Ron King, the original owner, recently made contact with us via the internet! He is now 80 and lives in Australia, but has been working in Thailand running his own Go Go Bar. Ron told us that his life and times in the music business has created such interest that a book and film is presently being worked on. Ron would be pleased to be in contact with anyone who remembers him and share stories of those times with him. Please email Galaxy at email@example.com
