You may be familiar with the city of Pittsburgh because of Wiz Khalifa’s hit ‘Black & Yellow’ or maybe because you’re an avid sports fan who reminisces about the 1970s when their teams dominated sports and the town was known as the City of Champions. One thing most folks know about the Steel City is that the town knows how to have a good time!
Speaking of good times, meet the guy who does all of the work but rarely takes credit for it – Mike Elko! Mike has been bringing national touring acts to Pittsburgh and the surrounding area since 1986. Chances are if you live in the area and like live music, you’ve been to an Elko Concert. From metal to country to rock to comedy, Elko Concerts has PA covered.
Mike is an affable person with his finger on the pulse of the live music business. And he knows just about everyone.
Some past artists include: Bootsy Collins, Tech N9ne, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Wayne Newton, Kris Kristofferson and Megadeth.
If you’re lucky enough to be Mike’s Facebook friend, you can spend hours looking at photos of the artists he’s hosted. Here are just a few!
