We’re excited to introduce this week’s Event 360 Teammate Spotlight. Enjoy a glimpse into the personal and professional life of Tim Brockman.
Start Year: In the Beginning…2002
What job did you hold right before you came to work at Event 360? When we started Event 360 I had just come off working for Pallotta Teamworks. I was the “tour manager” for the production team we had out executing the events. So, technically I was unemployed as PTW had shut their doors. I was trying to decide if I was going to dive back into the rock and roll lifestyle again or start Event 360 with a great group of people.
Was there anything in particular that brought you to Event 360? My partners, the people I had met the few years before and the understanding that there was a big need for the work we were doing to help make a difference in people lives.
If you weren’t working at Event 360 what would you be doing? Probably working full time in the music industry as a Tour Director. Live entertainment has been such a huge part of my life that it would be the only direction I would know to go.
Favorite part of your job? One thing I love about live events is that it’s always different. Maybe same event every other day or week or year, but always a new audience, new contacts, new challenges, or new opportunities. I also like that each event has a sense of closure—this gig is done, time to get ready for the next gig. It never is boring. I also love to see people be happy—be it the mom who just finishes a 60 mile walk and sees her kids or the dad who has been with the kids all weekend without mom or the fans who just saw the greatest rock and roll show ever, I love the smiles, the excitement, the sense of delivering joy to people.
What do you like to do in your free time? I love any type of racing. Cars, trucks, boats…if it goes fast I am all over it. Only wish I could do it…6’10” and race cars, not a good combo. I love “putzing” around the house—fix this, sweep that, wash this, etc.
Most memorable event experience? Oh boy, have I got stories…Not sure I can nail it down, but one that always rises to the surface was in 1991 AC/DC in Moscow for a free concert—1.6 million people, 50,000 military as security, no infrastructure…Grab me some time, I will tell you full story, it ends with Vodka, a military uniform and a ride to a hotel in a Moscow police car.
You’re showing off your hometown to a friend who has never been to visit before. What’s on your must see/do/eat list? I would say one of the most amazing parts of Colorado are the Rocky Mountains. At the base is a place dear to my heart, Red Rocks Amphitheater. For eats I would have to take folks to the Piper Inn for the best chicken wings west of Buffalo and to Hickory House for unbelievable BBQ.
On event, what three things are we guaranteed to find in your bag? A site map (always know where you are), pen (write it down) and money (you never know when you are going to run into a coffee place or food truck and need to grab a bite—it may be only opportunity all day).
One word to describe Event 360? Family
