Galaxy Entertainments

 

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. 

 

NEWS

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 val@galaxyentertainments.org.uk

We are sad to announce that we had to postpone the music awards 2014.  But we still plan to present our Galaxy Christmas Cracker medals in December.  We are holding a joint Christmas gathering with the Small Faces Fan Club on Saturday 6th December at the newly refurbished Ruskin Arms, a venue steeped in music history. See flyer below.  Full details of nominations to follow.

FOLLOWING ITS SUCCESSFUL SHOWCASE IN WORTHING, WHERE IT RECEIVED A STANDING OVATION, THE ALL OR NOTHING MUSICAL IS NOW LOOKING TO GET IT ON TOUR AROUND THE UK IN 2015.  GET INVOLVED!

MESSAGE FROM THE GALAXY TEAM

It's been one of the worse years (we feel) for getting people off their sofas and out to venues to see some great live music, but the Galaxy Girls are still going to draw up a list of nominations for some of the best of those artists out there doing it and trying to get their amazing music noticed!  We do understand how money is really, really tight just now, as we've suffered ourselves and had to limit the number of gigs we go to, but hoping the future will improve. We are doing our little bit to applaud what you amazing, talented artists do. Announcement coming very soon!
