Meet The Team

Casey Blakeley

  • grandstand email

Casey lives in Central Illinois with his wife and two children. When they are not busy going to baseball or soccer practice they enjoy bowling, fishing and spending time together. In his spare time Casey enjoys playing in Texas Hold Em tournaments. His passion for playing poker is what he believes jump started his dream of producing concerts.

As a teenager, Casey enjoyed playing poker and attending concerts with his brother. Casey began in the entertainment business after winning a poker tournament when he was 19. He and his brother took the winnings and decided to produce their own show, a Terri Clark “Unplugged” show at a local theater. Things progressed from there, and Casey began booking an indoor venue and a couple smaller fair accounts. What began as a couple fairs is now over 20 and increasing.

Casey truly has a passion for seeing his clients turn what they have dreamed about into a reality, producing concerts that have thousands in attendance. For Casey, looking out into the crowd from backstage and knowing that he played a part in making their dream a reality is what makes all the work worth it.

Scott lives in Central Illinois with his 3 sons. Scott enjoys attending their many baseball, basketball, football and track events with his girlfriend, Lyndi. When they are not at sporting events, they are raising a few goats and spending time with family and friends.

Scott has been in the entertainment business for over 5 years. He began by volunteering for his local county fair board. Like all Illinois fairs, there was little state funding and they were looking for ways to generate higher attendance rates and more revenue to the fair. Scott has always had a love of music, began researching talent buyers and agencies, and found Casey Blakeley. The first concert they put together was Dustin Lynch and it rained a half inch 2 hours before the show. What started as one county fair concert has now become over 20 fairs and festivals each year.

What Scott loves about the entertainment business is seeing people who have similar dreams he once had and helping those dreams become a reality. He loves the pure joy, emotion and happiness music brings people, and loves watching a committee start with ideas and helping to transform them into a reality. His favorite part of a concert is listening to a crowd sing loudly back to the artist.
