The EXPO 2019 Keynote Address, “Controlling Chaos,” will feature movie producer and band manager Andy Gould on Tuesday, August 13th (12:30-1 pm)

Every club owner and operator understands the challenges that come with managing the egos of entertainers, DJs, bartenders and cocktail servers. Sure, you want your staff and entertainers to be “stars” in your club (as reflected by this year’s EXPO theme), but it isn’t always easy to reign in the larger-than-life egos on the clubs biggest “stars.” Sometimes, when egos clash, it can create a chaotic environment that rides the line between high-energy (good) and volatile (not so good).

Our EXPO Keynote Speaker, Andy Gould, understands the challenges of managing massive egos and the chaos that can sometimes ensue when egos run amok. After managing musicians like Axl Rose and the rest of Guns N Roses, and producing several films with Rob Zombie including “Halloween,” “Halloween 2,” “The Devil’s Rejects” and “House of 1,000 Corpses,” Andy clearly has a grasp on what it means to manage these high-ego stars and control the chaos that can sometimes ensue. That idea, “Controlling Chaos,” is the theme of EXPO 2019’s Keynote Address.

Andy will share anecdotes about some of his more chaotic moments with [celebrity actors and musicians] and what it takes to juggle egos while keeping a band, a movie—or a gentlemen’s club—operating as smoothly as possible. – ED’s Dave Manack

“Andy Gould knows exactly what adult club operators do every night in their venues, as they attempt to juggle egos and control the chaos,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher, Dave Manack. “He’s managed many big egos over his lengthy career as a band manager, including Axl Rose, Lionel Richie, Rob Zombie and Glenn Danzig, and bands such as Linkin Park and Pantera. He’s also produced 10 movies over the past 16 years, each one filled with ‘stars’ who demanded their share of attention. During his Keynote Address, Andy will share anecdotes about some of his more chaotic moments with these personalities, and what it takes to juggle egos while keeping a band, a movie—or a gentlemen’s club—operating as smoothly as possible.”

The EXPO 2019 Keynote Address is sponsored by Bob Chiappardi of StripJointsMusic.com.
