For us, it’s all about the music. There is no better way to experience the way music was meant to be heard – live and in person. It’s that “in the moment” concert experience that keeps our wheels turning. Day in and day out, we are on the hunt for the best new bands and work to bring them to Indianapolis. Over the course of the last 15 years our team has produced over 1,500 events.
In addition to booking our own shows, we work hand in hand with other local promoters and event planners to procure talent for their events. Our clients include Sun King Brewery, Carmel Art of Wine, Fountain Square Music Festival, and Daredevil Brewing Company.
MOKB Presents actively promotes events at a variety of Indianapolis and Bloomington venues ranging in capacities from 75 to 8,000. Venues include Old National Centre, The Vogue, The HI-FI, White Rabbit Cabaret, Sun King Brewery, The Lawn at White River State Park, Garfield Park, Broad Ripple Park, The Hoosier Dome, and Buskirk-Chumley Theatre. We are always looking for opportunities to establish relationships with new venues, so feel free to reach out.

We built our company on artist development and fan loyalty. Treating our fans right has always been our top priority. Great customer service, low ticket fees, and fan rewards has helped us build a positive reputation in Indianapolis with our ticket buyers. The ability to discover a band early in their career, then be a part of their development in this market, has proven to be one of our greatest assets. Since we work with a diverse range of venues with varying capacities, we are able to promote small shows for new bands then grow with them into bigger rooms.
