  • Eliminate annual talent buyer fees of  $100,000.00  This program will remove the over $100,000.00 in annual fees that affiliated with providing national entertainment every year.
  • Eliminate the need for outside agent to travel and manage the show $10,000.00  Unfortunately many times the casino is paying for the travel of a talent buyer to be onsite for every show. By eliminating the use of third party talent buyer this cost disappears also.
  • Implement 3 year plan to reduce annual production costs of $100,000.00 by 50% and more  There is an additional $100,000.00 in costs associated with presenting these shows through sound, lights, staging, and crew. This program offers a slightly long-term plan to decrease this cost by at least 50% while creating more opportunities for tribal members to acquire specific skills in the areas of sound engineering, lighting production, video editing, sound recording, and stage management.
