Steven Van Zandt & John Luongo
John Luongo has worked with and beside some of the greatest and most powerful and respected names in the music industry. None of those were more powerful in their music business acumen and the esteem they were held in then Steven Van Zandt (Springsteen band co-founder and Silvio of the Sopranos fame). It was while working with Little Steven that he was given the task of starting and running his Wicked Cool Record Label, Publishing and Licensing companies as well as overseeing all aspects of each overseeing the day to day obligations and communicating with 18 bands in 10 countries. John was consulting on all aspects and actions of these companies under his Trecter Entertainment company, which gave him more objectivity and allowed him great lattiude to use his company to fulfill all the obligations under his direction.
While working with Steven, he was responsible for licensing, neogotiating, and writing all contracts for all compilations and John came up with the concept and licensed the widely successful "CBGB Forever" compilation which included all the best of the recording artists who either played there or wanted to show support for Hilly Crystal and CBGB. John frequently dealt with HBO, STARZ and Cinemax and all major TV shows and ad agencies as well as Rondor Music to license and negotiate deals for the Licensing Division.
John oversaw the implementation of all contracts while writing and negotiating the same for the record company, publishing company, licensing division and was one of the very first to ever represent and bring up the concept of a 360 deal with the Wicked Cool Artists. He was also responsible for overseeing and communicating with all 18 bands handling the recording of their music and placement in commercials amongst which he was directly responsible for placements for Old Navy, The Gap, McDonalds, FOX Sports, The NFL, Abercrombe and Fitch, Air Walk, STAZ, Encore and Southern Comfort and the NFL to name a few.
John knows the business and has built relations over decades that are essential in gaining an upper hand while personally securing and negotiating the deals mentioned. In addition to all his other responsibilities, he secured and negotiated the Wicked Cool distribution deal with SONY / RED as well as a publishing / administration deal with Universal Rondor . While this was all going on John personally assisted in and handled all negotiations of the distribution deal with FYE and Best Buy while acting as the main point person throughout all negotiations and implementation of each.
We say this to let you know that you are dealing with the Best when it comes to the music industry and the many varied and challenging times that require a steady hand and a strong principled presence in your corner!
