Los Angeles, CA (February 8, 2023) – SaveLive, the platform founded in 2020 to work with independent venue owners and promoters, announced two new exclusive venue partnerships today. Eagles Entertainment Inc, founded by Joe Balestrieri and Leslie West, joins the SaveLive network with their iconic collection of live performance spaces which include the historic Eagles Ballroom, Rave and The Rave II in Milwaukee, WI. Additionally, The Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo is the newest live music venue in California to become part of SaveLive’s network of partners.

Through this new partnership with Eagles Entertainment, the jewel of Wisconsin, the SaveLive network continues to grow their presence in the Midwest. The Eagles Entertainment building houses six individual spaces including the 4000 capacity Eagles Ballroom, which features a 25,000 square foot wooden dance floor surrounded by a second-floor balcony. Those gracing the stage of the ballroom include Bad Bunny, Coldplay, Luke Combs, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Slayer, and hundreds of other platinum selling artists. The second largest performance space in the complex is the Rave with a capacity of 1800 and features a wraparound balcony with incomparable sight lines. The Milwaukee complex has been the site of early-in-their-career live performances from Tyler the Creator, Travis Scott, Soundgarden, Mac Miller, Olivia Rodrigo, Jane’s Addiction, Nirvana, Dave Matthews Band, and Pearl Jam to name a few. The scalable space also allows for presenting the music of the diverse Milwaukee community.

“I have known Marc Geiger for 30 years. Partnering with SaveLive is an easy decision given his history and knowledge,” stated Eagles Entertainment Inc. co-owner Leslie West. “Marc was always my ‘go-to guy’ when I was at my wits end, when I did not know how to deal with a business issue. He always has an answer. When he started developing SaveLive, I told him I wanted to be a part of the team. My wish came true, and I have nothing but respect and admiration for what he and (co-founder) John Fogelman have put together. It’s a great partnership with great people.”

The Fremont Theater in downtown San Luis Obispo is a 900 capacity, beautifully renovated 1942 movie theater. Known for its colorful Streamline Moderne neon marquee, the Fremont has hosted artists such as Yes, Lyle Lovett, and Brandi Carlile in its long history. “We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with SaveLive to bring even more live music to the San Luis Obispo community,” said owner and operator Dan Sheehan. “The Fremont has been a fixture of the community for decades and we feel we are just getting started on the live music history of the Fremont Theater!.”


In 2020, SaveLive was started to bring scalable services and advantages to independent venue owners and secondary markets. We partner with iconic venues and promoters to grow their brand and business. SaveLive’s network of independents enjoy the benefits of investment, booking, ticketing strategy, marketing, F&B, VIP, technology, financial analytics, sales, and sponsorship and much more.


“Eagles Entertainment, Inc. was formed in 1991 by Leslie West and Joe Balestrieri, to own and operate the Historic Eagles Club, Milwaukee WI. Now known as The Rave/Eagles Club, after an 8-figure investment, the 180,000 square foot, seven-level, live entertainment complex contains six independent clubs with capacities ranging from 400 to 4,000. The Rave/Eagles Club is highlighted by the spectacular Eagles Ballroom. From the elegant domed ceiling to the eagle sculptures and intricate trim on the pillars, a concert at The Rave/Eagles Club gives concert goers an experience unlike any other in America.”


Located in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo, CA, the Fremont Theater is a historic movie theater, built in 1941. Throughout its early years it served both as a moving picture theater and a live entertainment venue. In the late 20th century, developers wanted to raze the building to install a new multiplex, but public outcry saved the theater. Full of rich, art deco charm, this theater has hosted everything from war bond shows to Adam Ant and Yes.
