With 25+ years in the entertainment business, Arden is proud to have helped build careers of young new artists | Flynn Design | Scoop.it

It’s not unusual for Arden to bring an act to Jackson that no one has heard of. Yet, many of those acts return again and again as they build a following here. He is also comfortable bringing in events with legends and superstars.

In 2012, Arden ended up presenting 160 different acts in about 40 shows, including acts like Kevin Costner and Modern West, Soul Asylum, Jackson Browne, Spyro Gyra, and Janice Ian. “The monumental event of the year was the Flaming Lips concerts and Wilco. It was an honor for us to do those dates.” It appears 2013 will be another great year as well.

At the beginning of the year, Arden had tickets on sale for about 13 shows and 20 more shows on the books.
