Nashville entertainment entrepreneur and PR and marketing professional Zach Farnum has launched 117 Entertainment Group, with vocalist Chuck Negron, former member of Three Dog Night, as his flagship artist.
Farnum previously worked at Webster PR and Hart Street Entertainment working with artists including Charlie Daniels, Don McLean, Randy Travis and more. He also co-chairs the T.J. Martell Young Professionals Council and is active with the Nashville Association of Talent Directors.
“It’s exhilarating to be starting out on a new adventure doing what I love — sharing talented and deserving artists and great music with the world,” said Farnum, “I want to create an honest and reliable company that does outstanding work. It doesn’t get much better than kicking it all off with a true icon like Chuck Negron. His voice is ingrained in music history and has been the soundtrack for millions of people across the world through the years, it’s an honor to work with him.”
Three Dog Night earned 18 consecutive top 20 hits, 21 top 40 hits, eight top 10 hits and four No. 1 hits, as well as five top 10 albums and eleven top 20 albums.
“After over five decades of recording, and 90 million records sold, to find myself excited about being represented by a new PR firm is a pleasant surprise to me. We have some great new projects coming up, and I am confident that Zach will do a great job getting the fans as pumped up about them as we are,” said Chuck Negron.
Negron will tour for his fourth year on the Happy Together tour, joining headliners The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie as well as The Association, The Box Tops, The Cowsills and The Archies starring Ron Dante.
