Steve Levesque, President [ Facebook ]
Steve Levesque commenced his career in the music business straight out of college in a blur of activity that has spanned more than 30 years. He has never held what he refers to a “straight job.” From working in record retail at Wherehouse Records, to managing the Surf Punk band Agent Orange – securing them record deals, radio airplay, tours, and the very first Skateboard endorsement deal- he went on to being the head of Media Relations at Enigma/Capitol Records and then worked his way up to Vice President of Music Department for the legendary PR pro, Lee Solters. Levesque has worked with an eclectic assortment of artists and projects including: Michael Jackson, James Brown, Lollapalooza, Bush, Lit, Moody Blues, Chaka Khan, New York Dolls, Billy Ray Cyrus, Sara Evans, Kenny Chesney, Rick James, Air Supply, Rick Springfield, David Cassidy, Heart, Sandra Bernhard, Penthouse Magazine, The Cramps, Dick Dale, Residents, Musicians Institute, Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack, Kottonmouth Kings and many more. In his rare non work hours, Steve likes to spend time with his son Leo. He also loves travel and has been to all 50 states and exotic locations such as Havana Cuba, Vietnam, South Africa and even Croatia. His music of choice is 80s Punk. To relieve stress Steve restores and sells vintage scooters such as Vespa and Lambretta. And is a slower member of the Las Vegas Ferrari club with his old ’84 Mondial convertible.
