About

Enthusiastic and energetic, Innovation Concerts is Toledo, Ohio's bright, new beacon beckoning the nation's greatest bands and live music fans. Positioned 45 minutes south of Detroit, 2 1/2 hours west of Cleveland, and 2 hours northwest of Columbus, Toledo sits between the cities where many American music legends got their start. Motown, The Stooges, MC5, Ted Nugent, Eminem, Trent Reznor, and Marilyn Manson are just a few recognizable names that once did or still do call the Lake Erie area home. With Innovation Concerts' exclusive promotion capabilities to many of the area’s best known and most hospitable venues, we are proud to do our part in continuing that legacy.

Prior to starting Innovation Concerts, president and company founder Broc Curry was the first promoter in the area to book bands that are now household names, including artists The Black Keys, The White Stripes, ICP, Kid Rock, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, All Time Low, Mac Miller and Spoon. Having an unprecedented gift for knowing what music fans want to hear now and in the near future, Broc envisions a company that could help touring artists create and nurture a loyal fanbase in Northwestern Ohio. Innovation Concerts currently has two venues: Frankie’s Inner City, home to the best up and coming bands for over a quarter century, and The Ottawa Tavern, Toledo’s original, live alternative venue. Accompanied by a team of seasoned midwestern music industry professionals, Innovation Concerts is ready to raise the bar for both bands and fans alike.
