Active as a music agent for the past two decades, Carlos Keyes leads New York's Red Entertainment Agency as President. He represents many of the industry's top artists including Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack and JT Taylor (formerly of Kool & the Gang). Carlos Keyes has planned and conceptualized many international tours over the past decade, including the 2004 Soul Divas Tour in Germany featuring Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, and Natalie Cole. At present, he is booking for the 50th Anniversary Tour for Dionne Warwick, which will span 2012 and 2013. Mr. Keyes began his career in 1993 with Pyramid Entertainment in New York as International Booking Agent. Within two years, he was responsible for facilitating global engagements for the entire spectrum of talent the firm represented. Artists he represented and toured with included the Isley Brothers, Men at Work, Manhattan Transfer, and Gladys Knight. With an aim of diversifying his client base and taking more control over the tour development process, Carlos Keyes co-founded American Talent Agency in 2001. The next year he launched his current agency, which has expanded over the past decade beyond musical concerts to include film and television work. Since the groundbreaking Soul Divas Tour, Carlos Keyes has provided the impetus and creative vision for a number of other successful package tours, including KC's Boogie Blast. The 2006 sold-out extravaganza included leading acts of the 1970s funk and disco era such as KC & The Sunshine Band, Tavares, Sister Sledge, and Gloria Gaynor. In 2008, Mr. Keyes conceived of the 1980s-focused Regeneration Tour, which featured the Human League, ABC, A Flock of Seagulls, and Belinda Carlisle. This successful concept was repeated in 2009 and 2010.
