-- Located in New York City, Universal Attractions Agency (UAA) is one of the most established booking agencies in music, with a brand dating back to 1949 and a history that includes launching the career of legendary soul singer James Brown. This month, UAA announced a strategic alliance with one of Hollywood’s oldest and most respected talent and literary agencies, Media Artists Group (MAG).
Through this synergy, talent from both UAA & MAG rosters will have access to over 30 agents servicing the areas of television, motion pictures, literary, theatre, commercial endorsements and personal appearances. "We are thrilled by the opportunity to work with Raphael Berko and his team at MAG." reflects Jeff Epstein, Co-Owner of Universal Attractions.
Owners Jeff Allen and Jeff Epstein of UAA, met with MAG founder Raphael Berko earlier this year to discuss the integration of UAA Music talent into the film/television industry worldwide. “Working together, both agencies' potential for growth is unlimited.” said Berko. Currently Universal Attractions Agency represents some of the top stars in Hip Hop and R&B today, including Brian McKnight, New Edition, Omarion, MC Hammer, Salt N Pepa, Lyfe Jennings, Patti LaBelle, and Flavor Flav among others.
With offices in New York, Los Angeles and internationally, the alliance positions UAA and MAG as a bi-coastal, full service team, representing some of the most prominent artists and leading entertainers of today.
