On January 30th, Copenhell freezes over as 6 up and coming Metal bands take the stage at VEGA. Besides witnessing the bands, you’ll get the chance to meet the key Metal industry people, who’ll be attending the networking event prior to the concerts. Over the next weeks, MXD will introduce you to some of the people, whom you’ll get to meet.
Name & company: Jörg “Schrörg” Düsedau, Dragon Productions GmbH
Tell us about your work: I’m a booking agent. I represent bands regarding their live concerts in certain territories. I’m booking their tours and festival shows. Talking to clubs and promoters, arranging the deals and all that. Dragon is handling the complete production of these tours and shows. This starts with the booking, contracting, invoicing, then moves over to the travel arrangement, pre-production for the actual shows, and ends with the settlement and payments. Furthermore I’m the managing director and co-owner of the company.
What bands do you work with? Quite some. To name a few non Danish acts: Michael Schenker, Sonata Arctica, Primordial, Moonsorrow, Anneke van Giersbergen and more. I just signed Bullet from Sweden and I’m very excited to help bring them to the next level.
Do you work with any Danish artists? Yep. I’m the south-of-Denmark agent for D-A-D and Artillery. D-A-D is one of my personal all time favorites. Working with them is a blessing. And I’m also working with awesome Hamferð from the Faroe Islands.
Who plays the meanest Metal shows these days? Bullet! A band can hardly be more metal.
