We are LUCKY DOG MANAGEMENT
Lucky Dog Management is an event planning, production, and management company based in Johnstown, PA. Established in the spring of 2015, we are dedicated to planning, coordinating, producing, facilitating, and providing logistical support in all aspects of each event.
With a background in the convention realm and live event management, Todd Wagner with the complement of many talented role players, has assisted in the growth and national attention of what is now known as the Flood City Music Festival. Much of the success of this festival can be contributed to Todd's talent buying, logistical vision and attention to detail, overlapping for one exceptional event.
Consequently, they have made the brilliant decision to take the show on the road -- Johnstown, PA and beyond. Ultimately, Lucky Dog Management aims to perfectly blend environment and experience to devise an exemplary event for our clients, artists, and audience.
TODD WAGNER, PrincipalIt was Todd's 'gift of gab' that led him to acquire his Communications degree from Alfred University in the early 90s. Now, counting over two decades of experience with sales and account management in live event recording, multi-media production, replication, and distribution for the business-to-business community, has allowed him to be a true asset to his clients.
This is not Todd's first time building a new company. In 2001, as Founder and CEO of Conference Archives, Inc. Todd led the company to hockey stick growth over a decade with gross sales of reaching $2.5 million. While providing the organization's vision, he also held responsibility for all aspects of operations including sales, account management, program and production coordination, logisitc management, and personnel. During this time, Todd proudly serviced many of the largest Scientific, Technical, and Medical Association's including American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, American Diabetes Association, American Society for Microbiology, American Epilepsy Society, and The Endocrine Society.
While working, Todd found time to devote to what he loved, music. In the past two decades, he has attended many national and regional music festivals, establishing himself as a regular at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. This provided as his backdrop of interest in volunteering for the Johnstown Folk Festival as early as 2003. From his volunteer time, Todd was invited to Co-Chair the event in 2008. Then in 2009, he re-positioned the festival as a pure music festival, which originated the Flood City Music Festival beginning in 2012. Now as sole Chairman, Todd is an instrumental part in providing the leadership in a five-year growth initiative for the newly established music festival. During this time, the festival has seen significant growth with 70% of the festival goers coming from outside of a 60-mile radius of Johnstown, PA. And, the festival has boasted such internationally acclaimed acts as The Derek Trucks Band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Galactic, Gregg Allman, JJ Grey & Mofro, Bettye LaVette, Dr. John, Del McCoury Band, The Smithereens, Trombone Shorty, Robert Randolph, Box Scaggs, and many, many more.
Taking what he knows and what he loves, Todd has been able to combine experience and passion to form Lucky Dog Management as an organization to assist clients in their live events through the medium of music.
