Hal Davidson's Promoting Wisdom Offers Unique Service, Bringing People Together
Davidson is a major concert & music festival producer who may be the only promoter anywhere giving his time to help others. A brutal business full of sharks, it's redeeming to know someone out there has a higher calling to bring people together.
Hal has shared his extensive experience and wisdoms for many years, both in consulting new promoters daily, and in two incredible, comprehensive concert and music festival promotion books found at www.concert-
Hal’s consulting site is www.rentapromoter.com
Unfortunately, after 3 decades of promoting, just since 2005, Davidson has encountered some of the most dastardly operators trying to enter into the concert and festival business. Their lies and deceit have required him to take ongoing legal action. To make matters worse, the web is being abused by some of these unethical operators. This is libel.
The spurious statements of him seen online in a few postings are actually opposite of who he really is. Hal Davidson is one of the most selfless and generous promoters of our time, uncharacteristic of the promoter stereotype, giving to homeless shelters, food banks, offering free consulting to start-up promoters and encouraging others to give to the Red Cross on his web sites. Hal Davidson is a giver, not a taker.
His habit of trusting others has undergone a new filtration process. He now helps for free at first to test the communication level of the potential client or associate. If the prospect can't communicate professionally in the beginning, it's revealing of their abilities and intentions later on." Davidson said in 2010.
After seeing damaging postings about Hal, a client, California Comedy Concert Promoter Steve Ferguson wrote in 2009:
“Knowing your character because I know you personally, I find that this is a wrong depiction of you and the way you handle business. What's more, I tried to counter what was being said by placing a positive comment that truly addresses your business characteristics as they truly are, and the site in which the negative comment was posted would not let me post a positive comment. I tried numerous times to post my opinion and each and every time it would not process.
Hal, I hope you can take some sort of action against those in charge of this site that is slandering your name. I know you are a fair, intellectual, and hard working business person and I would like for you to receive credit where credit is due, and not let slander affect your work and promotions.”
in fact, Hal has worked on hundreds of events over the last 35 years and served as a major marketing executive creating and managing highly effective marketing departments.
Here are just some of his recent clients, happy they contacted Hal.

Anthony Crum, Denver, CO “I could have never written that Business Plan in a thousand years.”

Hundreds of appreciative people who have come in contact with Hal Davidson have benefited from his knowledge, advice, encouragement and passion to promote. However, only in the last 5 years has Hal seen such an avalanche of liars, incompetents and character assassins. "We live in a new, dangerous world for the promoter where unsuspecting web surfers believe whatever they read." Hal urges you to write to your legislators to have them change libel and slander law’s statute of limitations beyond the absurdly short one year, to a lifetime just as the crime of murder is prosecutable. Libel and slander is the same as murder. In modern times, there is no difference."
"The concert and music festival business is tough enough. Dealing with barriers created by incompetent, unethical people violating their agreements and then lying to the media, public and authorities, makes it impossible to create success sometimes." Hal said
Hal Davidson has promoted concerts, music festivals, trade shows, circuses, ice shows, retail, travel and resorts. He promoted the largest, most exciting bluegrass music festival in American history and is a former Regional Marketing Director for Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus and for Ice Follies and Holiday On Ice.
Hal is an amazing promoting resource. Five minutes on email or the phone will show you his true value. It is not difficult to understand how lesser promoters could be alienated by his amazing skills and achievements. Excellence is not expensive, not having it costs a fortune.
