Arts Presenters: Brian Allenby

Brian AllenbyBrian Allenby is the Manager of Operations & Education at Reverb. Reverb is a non profit organization founded in 2004 by environmentalist Lauren Sullivan and her musician husband, Guster guitarist/vocalist Adam Gardner, which educates and engages musicians and their fans to promote environmental sustainability. The organization’s work has greened more than 45 major tours and 600 events, working with musicians such as the Dave Matthews Band, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayer, Sheryl Crow and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Prior to joining Reverb, Brian worked in both the music and environmental fields: after attending the American University in Washington, DC, he managed a venue and promoted/produced concert events in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC, subsequently moving back to his home state of Vermont, where he transitioned to the renewable energy and carbon offset industry.

In this interview, Brian talks with us about greening concert tours and festivals, and the difficulties involved in getting rid of CD jewel boxes.

This interview is part of an ongoing series with the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.

    Hello Brian Allenby

    I have recently taken on the roll as acting management for a local IE band called Pickaxe. i am finding it challenging but rewarding. I have always been an avid music fan and as a small graphic production business owner i understand the creative and business side of art/music. it is refreshing to read some of your blogs as they seem nonjudgmental and concise. The reason for this post is not to discuss me, but for your opinion about the band. We feel that the only way to explain pickaxe is to listen. He would be honered for your review- negative or positive. if you would like a media kit-please email

    Thank you, for your time!

    It is a great idea to juxtapose music and environment.every creature in the nature sings some melodious songs and its a really great idea that the musicians are working to make the world green….

    using renewable energy instead of coal and petroleum is a great measure while working to conserve the is a great effort from these musician volunteers who are arranging the concert and events…
