A Long Tradition Of Innovation And Quality Service In Concert Production

Caldwell Entertainment has a long standing proven track record of concert production over the past three decades. Caldwell Entertainment's founder, Don Caldwell, began work in concert production in 1977 when he designed and produced the first KLLL West Texas Saturday Night Opry, which was created to promote talent that was being produced and recorded in his recording studio. This forward thinking mindset helped set the tone of what was to come for Don and eventually Caldwell Entertainment.

The Opry was an overwhelming success of concert production. The event was held quarterly, with an average attendance of 2,800. Don eventually sold the name to a friend and frequent performer on the show in 1983. This again characterized Don’s creative attitude. While The Opry was a grand success, over the next decade Don continued to develop his skills and mindset to emerge at the forefront of concert production innovation.

From Intimate Venues To Enormous Productions

In 1991, Don not only founded Caldwell Entertainment, but also helped establish Broadway Festivals and the ‘4th on Broadway Celebrations’. This marked the largest event worked on by Don and again his modernized and ever changing concert production style shined through. Concerts on multiple stages throughout the July 4th holiday still to this day welcome 80,000 individuals over three days.

Realizing the need to heighten public awareness of the great West Texas talent, Don, with a group of investors, purchased and renovated the long-vacant Cactus Theater. In this historic concert hall Don and Caldwell Entertainment would continue to master the craft of concert production through concerts and musical productions every weekend for 22 years.

Concert Production Innovation As A Legacy

In 2008, Don was commissioned to design and produce Lubbock’s Centennial Celebration concerts, the largest series of concerts ever produced in West Texas. The three-concert series garnered an attendance of over 120,000 and presented world famous Lubbock performers, both legendary and contemporary. In conjunction with the concert production of the Centennial Celebrations, Don also produced two long play DVDs featuring the performances.

Today Caldwell Entertainment is staffed with some of the most exciting up and coming minds in concert production. Don has helped instill a spirit of both quality service and forward thinking originality which can be felt as soon as one steps foot in the Caldwell Entertainment offices. Whether you need a an intimate performance, or a large scale event, you can have full faith that Caldwell Entertainment will make sure to produce a memorable and one of a kind experience specifically curated to your needs and desires.
