talent that always deserves the spotlight


I think the most surprising thing with Steve and ERG Entertainment is the quality and excellence of the entertainment he finds for us each year. Finding attention-getting, audience-pleasing entertainment has always been a trademark of Steve. Our clients, guests, and employees are always amazed each year with the superior quality of the show we present at our client appreciation and educational events.

Dave, Owner, Davenport, Iowa

The success of our corporate appreciation event each year is a direct result of the efforts put forth by Steve Cover at ERG Entertainment. From booking the outstanding entertainment and stars to providing the production, stage, and crew, Steve is suggestions, and making sure our expectations are met. His attention to details, is second to none. That's why we use him each year; he's the ultimate show producer!

Ron, CEO, Columbus, Ohio

Steve, I've worked with many booking agents and concert producers in my career but you're one of the best. Our show at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center was spot on! The 46-piece Lima Symphony Orchestra with Brian Eads conducting was perfect. The event staff was excellent and very supportive. It was easily one of the top five orchestra shows that I have done with BJ.

Tom Wild, Grammy Award winning musician and musical director for 5-time Grammy Award winner BJ Thomas

I've had the pleasure of working with Steve Cover a few times over the years and am impressed with his consistent, solid support of the event in general and of our artist James Taylor specifically. Steve's dedication and follow through allow us to be sure that the event will be just as we anticipate. His commitment to his clients has made our work with him very successful.

Ralph Perkins, Production Manager, Tisbury Tours, Inc.

What a wonderful evening! The Oak Ridge Boys blessed us all with their music and talent. Thank you Steve for booking them!

Mary Fallin, Governor, State of Oklahoma

Working with Steve Cover has been a true pleasure; professional in every facet from the preproduction, to the show and follow up. I like working with experienced people who know what it takes to make it happen and make it seem effortless. No drama, just get it done...that's my style and Steve delivers.

John Oates, Hall and Oates, Aspen, Colorado

Steven, thanks so much for booking such a fantastic band for our Big Buckeye Bash networking event in Columbus. They were a perfect fit for our crowd! I would recommend them to any group planning a special event.

Nicole, Director of Events, Arlington, Virginia

Steve, I wish every agent and producer was as good to work with as you. My job is easy when I am working with someone who knows what they are doing and as good at what they do as YOU. Your EXPERIENCE is invaluable and a great asset to all of your clients. Thank you my friend.

Scott Keys, Manager, Grammy Award winning group The Kentucky Headhunters, Nashville, Tennessee

The Original Eagles Tribute Band" Hotel California wants to thank you for your great work in organizing your corporate event in Davenport, Iowa May 24, 2016. You were very professional in every aspect of the event. We highly recommend you as a corporate booking agent and concert producer to anyone who wants to have a worry free event.

Andy Lapointe, Manager, Hotel California

ERG has booked and produced our corporate concert for our annual client training and appreciation meeting since its inception. Using major stars, including Grammy Award winners, has increased our attendance and created extraordinarily amazing moments for our clients. This has helped us build and solidify strong relationships with our present clients as it will with our future clients as well. Steve's experience has saved us money, time and worries, and allowed us to focus on our clients and to sit back and enjoy the show. We look forward to working with Steve and his team of production professionals again next year.

Ernie, Rock Island, Illinois

The Ohio Fair Managers Association convention and entertainment showcase is the largest gathering of its kind in the country attracting over 3000 attendees. Steve Cover has arranged and produced our national entertainment showcase for several years now. He is a master of his craft and a consummate professional. Steve's knowledge and collective demeanor gain him the respect of everyone he comes in contact with. He is a consensus builder, a great communicator, respectful of everyone, and uniquely well-grounded in an industry known for its aggressive personalities and big egos; all which makes him very effective and someone you will enjoy working with. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Steve to book and manage any concert or event in which he chooses to engage.

Bob Dawson, Treasurer, Ohio Fair Managers Association; Director, Lake County Fair, Painesville, Ohio

The concert was absolutely great! You will be hearing from me again for our next event. Steve, I want to say what a great person you are to work with. You have made our events go smoothly and worry-free, and that takes a huge load off of me! You truly are a great guy! I would never want to do an event without you; I did that once and I know the difference! Everyone who worked and came in contact with you really complimented you. Again, I want to say thank you and I will be telling others...'You never have to worry if Steve is in charge because he is GREAT!'

Kalee, Elk City, Oklahoma

Steve has produced our concerts at the Green County Fair in Wisconsin for almost 20 years. WE LOVE HIM TO DEATH HERE! His experience has helped us avoid problems, kept the acts on the straight and narrow, and made sure the shows start on time. He's a wonderful and fun guy to work with and always offers great entertainment year after year.

Joyce Binder, Secretary, Green County Fair, Monroe, Wisconsin

As a music industry specialist, Steve has saved us 30-35% on our talent costs over what we could have booked them direct. He negotiates our contracts, advances the show, and works with the artist's tour and production managers on the day of the show to make sure the production goes smoothly and the show starts on time. We probably would not have booked as many concerts in the past year if it wasn't for Steve.

Shary, WEKZ Radio Concert Series, Freeport, Illinois

Steve Cover has been a big part of The Oak Ridge Boys success for many years. He has worked with us, promoted us, booked us, and produced our shows all over the country. We are proud to honor Steve Cover today (May 10, 2013), here on stage, by presenting him with a special plaque thanking him for being a part of our amazing career and making him an Official Promoter of The Oak Ridge Boys 40th Anniversary Tour.

The Oak Ridge Boys, Nashville, Tennessee

FLAWLESS is the word I am using concerning Saturday night's performance with The Voice's Chris Mann. Thank you Steve for all you did to make this happen for us.

Craig Gibson, Lakeside, Michigan

Steve, you did a great job...your attention to detail, planning ahead, and thinking on your feet were all handled with professionalism. A+ on all accounts!

Bob Grabow, Dallas, Texas

Chris Mann's performance at our 9/1/12 wedding reception exceeded our every expectation! His voice was breathtaking; his generous spirit thrilled our guests beyond measure. Chris and his crew's professionalism and willingness to accommodate made him the undisputed highlight of a storybook celebration. Thank you Steve!

Aaron Nichols, South Bend, Indiana

You really did a fantastic job on the production. You were very professional and I enjoyed every minute of working with you. Thank you Steve, let's do it again sometime.

John Oates, Hall & Oates, Aspen, Colorado

Steve, you did a great job organizing all the musicians and bands, and producing the showcase concert, something that is tantamount to corralling cats on a good day.

Jan Hudson, The Fossil Creek Band

Steve, thank you very much for all the hard work you did in organizing another great convention entertainment showcase! We appreciate your dedication to building up Ohio's fairs and festivals and are grateful to showcase the Phillip Fox Band.
