KEEPING AUSTIN MUSICAL
Moontower Entertainment strives to serve our clients’ unique live music needs while serving the Austin music community. At Moontower, we pride ourselves on providing the best live music for events of any size, budget, and cause. We own and manage five of Texas’s top party bands and book hundreds of acts of all genres and sizes. We love learning about our clients’ visions and customizing entertainment to meet and exceed their expectations. We guide all of our clients through the process of adding authentic Austin live music to their events, and work hard to make the booking process as easy as possible.
We have made it our mission to provide a livelihood for hundreds of Austin musicians, sound techs, and lighting directors. Keeping Austin musical is extremely important to us. Moontower Entertainment does not take the title of “live music capital of the world” lightly, and we know Austin is growing and changing rapidly in ways that don’t always support full-time musicians. Both owners of Moontower Entertainment are musicians and perform nightly alongside our incredibly talented Moontower artists, so we know what their needs are. That unique perspective allows us to serve these needs and help them thrive in the city we love so much. Moontower Entertainment is the bridge between a happy client and a happy entertainer, ensuring your best party ever.
MEET OUR TEAM
FOUNDER & CEO
Meet founder and CEO of Moontower Entertainment, Amos Traystman. Amos rotates playing guitar in all of the exclusive Moontower Bands and has been performing live music for more than two decades. When Amos first moved to Austin, TX in 2008, he was a speech pathologist by day and a gigging musician by night. Shortly after moving here, he started Moontower Entertainment's flagship band, Matchmaker Band, and realized that it was possible to make a living with music only. The band's success was transformative for its 13 members and sent Amos on a journey to help transform the lives of other talented and deserving musicians who weren't able to make it playing music full-time. Since then, the company has expanded into a full-blown booking agency with five award-winning party bands, hundreds of roster artists and an in-house weekly payroll consisting of 70+ full-time musicians, sound techs and lighting directors.
In addition to running the company and playing music live almost nightly, Amos enjoys spending time with his wife and business partner, Drew, and their three rescue dogs, eating his way through Austin's amazing food scene and frequenting the Alamo drafthouse. Amos is also very excited to become a first-time father this fall.
Drew Davis is Moontower Entertainment's Chief Operating Officer and proud best friend, business partner, wife and baby mama to Moontower's owner and CEO Amos Traytsman. Drew has been performing music live since she was six years old. Drew finished college in 2012 and moved to Austin, TX right after graduation in hopes to pursue music. She worked for a small marketing firm for several years, working all day and gigging around town most nights.
Drew and Amos met in 2015, when Moontower Entertainment was just an idea and Matchmaker Band's calendar was fully booked. Thanks to their combined musical backgrounds coupled with Drew's marketing experience and Amos's vision Moontower Entertainment is today, a full blown booking agency with five thriving in-house party bands.
Drew's original artist background brings something unique to the team, as many Moontower performers are original artists in their own right. She is passionate about helping original artists make a living doing music only full-time, utilizing the private party sector to help sustain and fund their original endeavors.
When she's not over-seeing Moontower Entertainment, you can find Drew hanging out with Amos and their three dog children, teaching pilates, leading songwriting groups, seeing her friends perform around town, or trying to find the latest Austin bar with the city's next best old fashioned (when she's not pregnant).
CORPORATE SALES & DMC SPECIALIST
Jordan Jimenez is Moontower Entertainment's head of Corporate Sales and Business Development and our DMC specialist. Jordan loves the event industry and has been a part of Austin's live events community for the past six years.
Jordan brings a unique perspective to Moontower Entertainment and its artists. Before joining the Moontower team, Jordan was working on every single aspect of events from the transportation to the catering to the decor and beyond. This makes Jordan a great liaison between our artists and our corporate clients, making the booking process incredibly seamless for both parties.
When she's not booking live music for your next event, you can catch Jordan hanging out with her rescue dog Molly, perfecting her homemade macaron recipe, attending live concerts in Austin and beyond, and pumping iron at her favorite gym almost every morning, recently recognized as gym member of the month (Go girl!).
MARKETING & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Meet Moontower Entertainment's newest member, Olivia Martin. Olivia is an integral part of Moontower's marketing and business development. She manages and creates content for all of our in-house band's social media accounts, initiates new business networking and relationships, and helps run down logistics for all in-house events.
Olivia has always known she wanted to be a part of live music events in some capacity and has found the perfect fit with Moontower Entertainment, where she gets to promote, advocate for and help provide income to Austin's most talented and deserving musicians.
When she's not out creating new leads for Moontower's talent roster, you can find Olivia hanging out with her cockapoo Ronnie, frequenting the downtown Austin scene, attending live concerts weekly, and definitely singing karaoke somewhere. Did we mention Olivia's favorite Moontower band is our Live Band Karaoke project, Moontower Radio? Look out for Olivia on their social media account, as Olivia attends Moontower Radio's Wednesday night residency at Icenhauer's almost every week. Yes...she does take requests.
