Blackbox Concerts was founded by Aaron and Jamie Knight in January 2012 in FWTX. we started out with a 3 band roster (The Dangits, Jody Jones and The Phuss) and booked Thursday nights at The Basement Bar in the FW Stockyards. (RIP Todd, we'll love you forever!). Thru the years, Blackbox has booked for many venues in FW, Dallas and Arlington, collaborated in openings of 6 venues, booked for festivals, private parties and special events. Since 2012, Blackbox has booked over 6,500 events and generated millions of dollars in revenue for local and touring musicians as well asfor bars, restaurants and venues in North Texas. We co-founded Ghostlight Concerts in 2014, which lasted about halfway thru 2015 before we went back to Blackbox. (Stick with what you're good at, ya know?) There have been festivals thrown, tours booked and a lot of drinks bought. We've had help by tons of awesome employees and interns and friends over the years too. These days, we are focused on maintaining our work helping North Texas live music and artists thrive in bars, restaurants and special events.
Blackbox is founded on a few principles: First, we care about artists. We always try to pay them well, offer hospitality and have had dozens of touring musicians crash on the couch and we love you guys. Secondly, Blackbox is easy to reach and accessible to anyone interested in the performing arts in DFW, especially if you email us more than 2 times ;) Lastly, we value transparency and integrity in business. We can't keep everyone happy all of the time and we've made mistakes for sure, but we will always strive to make things right. We believe that a promoter should support venues, artists, fans, engineers...and each other. We're Blackbox.
