A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER:
Hello there! My name is Sean P McCabe. I founded Entertainment Caterers as a DBA in 1991, incorporated in 1998 and was licensed as a Florida State Talent Agency, License Number TA682 in 2001. At the end of 2020, in the aftermath of COVID-19 after just shy of 30 years in business, I made the incredibly difficult decision to voluntarily dissolve my corporation, Entertainment Caterers, Inc. DBA EC Model & Talent Agency.
But like they say, "When one door closes, another opens"! After parlaying 20+ years of expert talent recruitment and placement skills to bring you the most cost-effective resource for talent sourcing and securing local, regional, national and international acts, I have decided to venture out on my own as an Independent Event Producer. I will go on providing world class talent to the major theme parks in Orlando, the top casinos on the Las Vegas Strip and assorted venues coast to coast and abroad. The only difference will be that I shall work with a smaller and more focused talent roster, providing my own personal attention to each and every client.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Sean McCabe is a seasoned veteran in the corporate entertainment industry, familiar with both sides of the stage as a guitarist, emcee, DJ, producer, stage manager, technician and talent agent. In the aftermath of COVID-19, he decided to become an Independent Event Producer.
Sean has been hooked on entertainment since his parents gave him his first guitar for his 6th birthday. Many guitars and gigs later, Sean went on to attend Siena College on the edge of Albany, the Capital of New York State. There, he began to forge his career as a performer and talent agent. These formative years would “set the stage” for Sean to grow his database of industry connections including talented artists, producers, technicians and more.
Sean is a consummate and attentive professional who always goes the extra mile. Over the years, he has graced countless stages as a Corporate Emcee, helped pioneer the art of Interactive DJ’ing, played guitar in A-Circuit Bands and performed across Walt Disney World as one of their most-requested DJ’s, MC’s and party hosts for over 10 years.
Looking into the future, Sean is setting his sights even higher as technology, talent and client expectations continue to soar. Taking his talents to the international stage, he is now splitting his time between Orlando, Las Vegas, Bangkok and Beijing, but through technology, he is virtually available everywhere!
WHY BOOK WITH US?
We are not the only game in town. You have many other options. There are many other agencies offering same and similar services. You can even contact many talents directly through a simple Google search. However, most performers do not excel in customer service. This is because top talents hire professional agents like us, so they have more time to focus on further developing their acts. They often work second jobs and are not readily available leading up to your event date.
We leave nothing to chance. You will be able to reach me personally through the completion of your event. We have backup talent in place in case of emergency. We understand that things can change on the drop of a dime, and are flexible within reason. We employ a strict talent screening process to insure that you are only contracting the very best performers.
Sean McCabe finishes college, having performed the past 4-years as an accomplished guitarist, DJ and MC at top clubs and venues throughout the Tri-State Area of New York... and moves to Florida to try and make a name for himself as a Celebrity Emcee and DJ, focusing on the opportunistic MTV Spring Break Era in Daytona Beach, Florida.
