Nov. 1, 2017 – ECE (formerly EastCoast Entertainment), a nationally recognized entertainment booking agency, announces the opening of their newest office in West Palm Beach, FL. This is the fifteenth location for the agency. While ECE has been bringing the best in corporate and private party entertainment to the South Florida area for years, the agency is excited to become a permanent, local resource for the region’s top entertainment.
The new office is a result of a partnership with South Florida entertainment company, Powerhouse Group. Powerhouse Group books entertainment for a variety of events worldwide. Their signature band, Powerhouse Band, is one of the most popular dance bands in the country and has performed for many celebrities and dignitaries.
The Powerhouse Group will take on the ECE name and brand while Powerhouse Group executives, Alan James and Tiffany Guttenplan, have been appointed to leadership roles within ECE and charged with spearheading the new office. The Powerhouse Band will become an exclusive artist on the ECE roster.
“As we explored expansion into Florida, it was important to us to find a partner who would be a great fit both professionally and culturally. In Tiffany and Alan, we have two exceptional new friends who perfectly mirror the ECE philosophy of combining the best talent with amazing customer service and integrity. It’s hard to express how excited I am to have them part of the ECE team,” says Doug Daniel, President and CEO of ECE.
“Alan and I have been industry colleagues with ECE for almost two decades and have collaborated on many shows and events. When we decided we wanted to expand our business we knew that partnering with ECE was the next obvious and natural step. We couldn’t be more thrilled to join this great team and are excited to provide our clients with a vast and impressive roster of new talent,” says Tiffany Guttenplan, Location Managing Director of ECE West Palm Beach.
