Brennan William Seehafer
Today, Brennan Seehafer splits his “home” time between Manitowoc and Nashville. Normally, though, you’ll find him in a tour bus or hotel room as a tour manager, concert promoter, or a production or site manager for a performance somewhere across the country.
He is currently the producer of the Ultimate Tribute tour featuring the world’s best celebrity impersonators (2008-present) and of concerts by The Lettermen (2008, 2009, 2016) and the popular Lettermen Christmas Show (2011, 2014) at the Capitol Civic Center in Manitowoc. Since 2013, Brennan has worked in the casting department for the ABC-TV hit series Nashville and even had one on-screen appearance.
His first production came at just six years old in the basement of his parent’s home in Manitowoc. Splitting time between planning shows and elementary school, his productions grew in size and scope. While his friends were still learning to count past 10, his mind was coming up with more and more larger-than-life ideas that finally forced him to move from his basement theatre to the Washington Park band shell in Manitowoc. Finally, at the ripe old age of 12, he took the leap and formed his own production company, Brennan Seehafer Productions, in 2005.
He has been involved in productions across the United States, Canada, and the Philippines working with some of the biggest names in today’s entertainment industry. In 2015, he served in various capacities for acts and events such as:
- Joan Jett & The Blackhearts concert in Green Bay
- Oregon Jamboree Music Festival featuring 22 shows on two stages including Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Hunter Hayes, Big & Rich, and Sam Hunt
- TLC Network’s Willis Familyperformance at Milwaukee Irish Fest
- Donny & Marie Osmond show at the Flamingo Las Vegas
- Arianna Grandenational tour
- Luke Bryan Farm Tour
He’s also been involved in such events as:
- Country Music Association CMA Awardsin Nashville (2009-12)
- ABC-TV’s Good Morning America Live from the CMA Awards morning special (2009-12)
- ABC-TV’s CMA Country Christmas Music Specialin Nashville (2010-12)
His roles have included everything from producer and promoter of events and tours to stage management to make sure shows go off without a hitch. He also consults with various venues around the country to help with their talent booking and planning shows for their production seasons. Brennan’s skills in all aspects of performance planning will help us make this edition of Lakeshore’s Rising Stars the best ever.
