We don't suspect the concert-booking behemoth better known as Belkin will get much competition yet from Peter Cimoroni and Tom Porter. But the owners of Two Dudes Productions
beg to disagree.
At a September 28 kickoff party at XO
downtown, Cimoroni and Porter told the la-de-da throng of invited VIPs (yeah, that includes us) that their freshly formed company will market book deals, golfing competitions, and concerts. They even plan to launch an American Idol
-like New American Star
radio show, in which finalists from 12 cities compete for a record deal.
"We're going to bring the glitz back to Cleveland with great entertainment," Cimoroni told us. "And we're not going to stop until we get this done." --Cris Glaser
