The M&M Group is one of the largest privately-held entertainment companies in The United States. With over 35 years of experience in the entertainment industry, we are committed to providing top quality entertainment at the best possible prices.
The M&M Group has serviced the talent buying needs of Casinos, Arenas, Corporate Events, Fairs, Festivals, and the Latin American Markets and has built a reputation for dependability, attention to detail, and excellent customer service.
The M&M group started out primarily as an entertainment company for festivals providing live concerts, full production and various other items for festivals throughout California. Among our several successes, The M&M Group produced “The Grape Harvest Festival” in Rancho Cucamonga, which at its time, was the most successful festival in the area for over 10 years. Other festival involvement includes the “Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival”, “Diamond Bar Ranch Festival” and “The Beaumont Cherry Festival”, which we are still the talent buyers for and the festival grows larger each year.
Our skills in the entertainment industry continue to grow and reach new boundaries. We have gone from booking festivals to fully producing major tours and now we have moved on to assisting in the design of major showrooms and night-clubs. Recently in 2009 Muzak, Star Way Productions and The M&M Group collectively worked together an designed The Gila River Casino Showroom and Night-Club. The project was a huge success.
Starting out booking Platters, Drifters and Coasters, The M&M Group has emerged to booking artists such as The Jonas Brothers, Tim McGraw, Jenni Rivera, Fergie, The Beach Boys, George Lopez, Kenny G and Miley Cyrus. The M&M Group has relationships with some of the largest names in show business. We can provide you with great Artists from the past, the present, and the newest up-and-coming Artists that the entertainment industry has to offer. No matter what genre you are looking for, The M&M Group can deliver!

Want to take a moment and thank you for continually being able to instigate and follow through on creative ideas to put shows in the Wenatchee Valley market. Our market is smaller in comparison and is also surrounded by summer chateaus and casinos. Guarantees that make for successful ventures on all sides many times simply don’t pencil here. So, the innovative ways you’ve been able to work with artists and building have been a win/win for all. Whether it is including ancillaries or back end dollars or percentage splits or tied together runs for affordable guarantees – we appreciate having you involved. There is no way the same straight buy deals could have worked here with artists as Boston, Joan Sebastian, Gloria Trevi, Gabriel Iglesias, Pepe Aguilar and Ron White. Looking forward to more shows in the future.
Michael called me personally after being introduced by mutual friends. I had a challenge I am sure he had heard many times before; “I need a big name, I have a low budget, and the event is with a couple of weeks”. Surprisingly, he was unshaken and provided within 24 hours a range of great options. He worked personally with me over the ensuing period to shape the show, negotiate the talent and manage the process from letter to meet & greet. He instilled enormous confidence at each step. In the end, most importantly, he delivered two great shows that blew our guests away, at a cost that was less than we expected and with a constant smile that hid what must have been a monumental challenge. Michael will remain a top resource for our entire organization.

Finding Michael Scafuto has been a godsend for me. For years I struggled to find a reputable agent for Latino programming. Trying to program that genre was very frustrating. Fortunately somehow I connected with Michael and voila! Things changed. He has brought us several big name acts and has proven to be a person of integrity and honesty. He does what he promises and sticks with you to see it through. Unlike many other agents, he cares about both the talent buyer and the artist. I can’t say enough positive things about Michael and his good work. I highly recommend him.
