Music Industry Veterans Team-Up to Produce National Concert Series

Our program directors are extremely excited that we will be bringing top notch and new talent to our affiliate cities. With Rick and O.C., the sky is the limit! Stay tuned!

Industry aficionados Eric & Nick V of the Baka Boyz, Rick Aaron, David Harned Sr. & David Harned Jr. of Orange County Productions have joined forces to produce a concert series consisting of 30 shows in 55 markets, with stops in mid-size arenas and cities around the U.S., including Albuquerque, NM; Kansas City, MO; Tulsa, OK; Oklahoma City, OK; Salt Lake City, UT; Reno, NV; Columbus, OH; Milwaukee, WI, with more dates to be announced. The Baka Boyz are heard in syndication in all 55 of the markets (including Bakersfield, Calif.), and will be on-hand to host the majority of shows.

OC Productions recently celebrated the launch of series with the “The Winter Takeover Turn Up!” held December 29, 2012, at The Rabobank Theater in Bakersfield, California, and was hosted by local radio station Hot 94.1 “The night was electric!” says J. Reed, Program Director of Hot 94.1. “The Baka Boyz and Rick Aaron put together a great lineup and had the crowd on their feet all night!” The event featured many of today’s premiere Hip-Hop artists, including Young Money recording artist Tyga, Epic recording artist Cash Out, DJ and Bay Area recording artist Love Rance, producer Polow da Don’s protégés W3 The Future, Universal Republic recording artist Clyde Carson, Brick Squad Entertainment’s Joe Moses, and more.

Music industry veteran Rick Aaron of Aaron Entertainment, who recently merged with O.C. Productions, is the visionary behind this concert series. Aaron says, “Our first event was amazing and to great response. Special thanks to the Baka Boyz, my partners the Harneds, Bakersfield radio station Hot 94.1 and to all of the artists who performed. We look forward to getting this tour on the road. The artists we’ve signed on are topping playlists around the U.S.; especially in the respective markets where they are performing. They are chosen based on broad market appeal and recognition, radio success, strong fan following and of course the “it” factor. We are also elated to introduce several young, up and coming artists, who are generating solid fan bases via social media. These concerts are a perfect marketing tool to help break new artists. This is an exciting time for ventures such as ours, especially in a concert promotion environment being dominated by conglomerates.”

"We are very happy about the success of the first concert date, and we look forward to the upcoming shows,” states Nick V of the Baka Boyz. “This is an incredible opportunity for Eric and me to continue expanding our national brand that we have established with our Pop and Hip-Hop radio mixshows. Our program directors are extremely excited that we will be bringing top notch and new talent to our affiliate cities. With Rick and O.C., the sky is the limit! Stay tuned!"
The next concert in conjunction with Q104.7 is set for Memorial Day in Lake Havasu. Tickets will start at $39.50 and will be available for purchase at Ticketmaster.
