ABOUT US

Nina ("Ny-nah") McCarthy has a 25 year history of booking, managing local bands, promoting, and music journalism as a freelancer and the former owner of BB Entertainment.  Nina previously had a rewarding career as an EMT, Medical Billing Specialist, and Medical Assistant, but her own medical issues left her unable to perform her duties, so she decided to concentrate on her other love, MUSIC!  From 2015-2022, Nina worked for a streaming radio station, concentrating on journalism, interviewing national bands, and reviewing albums and concerts.  She held the positions of Senior Music Journalist, Digital Content Editor, Artist Recruiter, and Co-host before resigning in April of 2022 to return to her independent roots.  After being asked to spearhead a promotions team at Fête Music Hall at the end of 2021, Nina decided to jump back into the booking game, as well,  because she deeply cares about keeping rock, metal, punk, and hardcore alive in Providence, RI.  Nina has always been a very dedicated supporter of local, national, and international artists and is a familiar face at concerts and local shows throughout New England and beyond. Her experience and professional relationships that have been developed in the music industry over the years will be an asset to Steel Thorn Promotions at Fête. Nina can be reached at steelthornentertainment@gmail.com for any journalistic needs and nina@fetemusic.com for BOOKING ONLY.
