Founder & CEO / Head of Casino Division
An award-winning agent for over 25 years, Seth Shomes is the Founder and CEO of Day After Day Productions (DADP) where he oversees the client roster as well as all business development initiatives.
An accomplished leader and recognized expert in the casino entertainment world, Shomes established himself as a pioneer when he became the first agent to build a platform for non-traditional entertainment programming to thrive in the gaming industry. Throughout his career, Seth has received praise from the highest level of casino executives, artists, managers, and record and PR executives for his ingenuity in developing unique marketing strategies that have proven to be more successful on multiple levels than those of his contemporaries.
As voted on by the industry, Shomes has been awarded the prestigious “Casino Agent of the Year” title 5 times (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020) at the annual Casino Entertainment Awards in Las Vegas and was nominated in 2019.
After graduating cum laude from Tufts University in Boston, Shomes’ career started in the mailroom at the esteemed Associated Booking Corporation (ABC) in New York where he trained under legendary agent Oscar Cohen.
In 1996 he opened DADP with a core expertise and focus of booking, producing and buying talent for entertainment events and the agency held an unparalleled footprint in the casino world for nearly two decades.
After working with The Agency Group (TAG) for many years, Shomes joined them in 2014 where he launched the first dedicated Casino division at any worldwide agency. When TAG was acquired by United Talent Agency (UTA) in the Summer of 2015, Shomes founded UTA’s debut Casino Division which annually secured tens of million of confirmed deals for its music and non-traditional touring clients under his leadership.
Although he enjoyed his time at UTA, Shomes felt a need to once again follow his entrepreneurial core and re-opened DADP in April 2021 and has immediately emerged once again as one of the touring world’s premier independent music agents that not only excels in casino bookings but all varieties of fairs, festivals, venues, promoters, and buyers.
As an event producer, Shomes founded the philanthropic social media campaign, Flash Flood For Good – a charitable initiative that generated a digital voice of over 545 million for Clean Water Awareness in association with President Bill Clinton and a host of celebrities that raised money to build wells and provide clean driving water for impoverished countries.
Shomes has also produced events for a variety of celebrities and icons from Bruce Willis to Snoop Dogg to Robert Plant and enjoys using his creativity and business acumen to create a “win-win” for all parties involved.
Having started in the industry as a songwriter and rock pianist, Shomes enjoys playing gigs locally and spending time with his wife Audra and their kids, Aidan, Kayla and Dylan.
