November 7th, 2013 (Mobile, ALA) – HUKA Entertainment, a boutique festival and concert production and promotion company, has announced the addition of Mobile, AL’s Saenger Theatre to the growing roster of concert venues for which it handles booking and promotion. HUKA will act as the non-exclusive in-house promoter and marketing agency for the theatre, which also named SMG to spearhead facility management. The partnership aims to improve economic development for Mobile’s downtown area by bringing some of the country’s top performers to the venue.
“HUKA Entertainment was founded in Mobile,” says HUKA Entertainment co-founder and CEO A.J. Niland. “And it’s a privilege to be involved again with a venue that is a deep part of our roots. We’re looking forward to working with SMG in creating new history for the Saenger Theatre – a place that plays a special role in both the city’s identity and ours.”
HUKA Entertainment is proud to welcome a diverse variety of shows to the Saenger Theatre as part of its grand reopening. For families, a Charlie Brown Christmas will appear at the venue on 12/21. In the New Year, HUKA presents The Machine: A Tribute to Pink Floyd on 1/18; Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang on 2/18; and Southern Soul Assembly (featuring Marc Broussard, Anders Osborne, JJ Grey & Luther Dickinson) on 4/1. Tickets for these shows go on sale this Friday, November 8th at 10 am CST and can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com and www.mobilesaenger.com, by phone at 251-208-7906 and at the Saenger Box Office at 401 Civic Center Drive between 9AM and 5PM Monday through Friday weekly.

HUKA Entertainment will be the first in-house promoter for the historic venue in over two years. Built in 1927, Mobile’s Saenger Theatre was hailed as “Alabama’s Greatest Showplace.” In 1999, the city of Mobile purchased the
theatre, and through community donations, invested six million dollars into restoring the venue to its original splendor.
