Larry Webman ’92 shares a glimpse into his life in the music industry. As a senior vice president at Wasserman Music in New York, Webman represents some of the biggest names in music, such as Coldplay, Sara Bareilles, MGMT, Bastille, the Dropkick Murphys, and more. Webman got his start on the Clark campus, haggling with bands as head of the Pub Entertainment Committee. He worked the phones and lured acts like Phish and Dread Zeppelin to Worcester.
“I got the hang of how to deal with agents and how to negotiate deals for bands to come play,” he says. “It was never any long-term plan, but one thing led to another, and success happened over time. At this point, with an established client roster, I have to love the music first.” Webman suggests Michigander and Georgia Harmer to anyone looking for new music.
