Michael Twombly- Agency co-founder ; principal
Michael’s full of big ideas and has plans for world domination in this industry by 2014. When not running Music Zirconia, working on business development and closing deals, Michael is also the lead singer “Robert Smith” of his Cure tribute band The Cured. Original Cure co-founder Lol Tolhurst has joined The Cured onstage for a performance at Gibson Amphitheater. Prior to starting the agency Michael was a high end web designer for the likes of Marilyn Manson, Backstreet Boys, N-Sync, and “Mini Me” actor Verne Troyer.
As drummer for both the Social Distortion tribute Total Distortion, and the Bon Jovi tribute Livin’ On A Prayer, Greg stays very busy when not agent-ing for Music Zirconia.
Rogelio Beltran Russell – Mexico, Central & South America Agent
Roger has brought many acts to his hometown Tijuana, Mexico from the United States and even as far Europe as a promoter. He is an expert on all things pertaining to new wave music. Often accompanying bands we bring down to act as tour manager and interpreter, he’s an invaluable asset to the Music Zirconia familia.
Carin Toti/Knight - Agent (hard rock/metal) ,
A rocker at heart, she’s a pint sized firecracker full of New York attitude. She’s the bassist for internationally touring all-girl AC/DC tribute band ThundHerStruck. Her husband is also the “James Hetfield” in our Metallica tribute- Damage Inc. She’s widely respected for being tough but fair and is ready to go to battle for what she lovingly refers to as “my boys”.
Darwin Meiners - Agent (San Francisco branch office)
Darwin is the pretty-boy hipster from the Bay Area with sartorial acumen to die for. In a serendipitous moment of life imitating art-his emulation of singer/bassist David J (from Bauhaus and Love & Rockets) is so spot on it led to the eventual absorbing of Darwin’s tribute band by the REAL David J(co-founder of Bauhaus, Love & Rockets and Tones on Tail). Darwin also now manages David J, and when not touring the world with David J or playing with Luv’n Rockets, Darwin helps the agency out with bookings in the Northern CA region.
