Entertainment

Fairs, festivals, outdoor concerts—these special events are a huge part of American life.

With customizable insurance products, American Specialty is ready to assume the risk of a wide range of entertainment experiences to keep the celebrations moving forward.

Concerts

When it comes to planning a concert, don’t forget to book insurance! Great bands and performers make the event memorable, but concert insurance gives peace-of-mind to the concert promoter. From securing the venue to protecting the financial well-being of the promoter, concert insurance is the first step toward ensuring a successful show.

Event & Concert Promotions

Unlike the lead singer in the band, nobody wants insurance to play the starring role. But without insurance, the show can’t go on! That’s where our concert and event promoter insurance program is ready to take the stage. Despite all the careful planning in the world, things can go wrong. Crew members can get hurt by stage equipment, fans can get too rowdy, or the venue may sustain property damage during load-in and load-out. If these things happen, you want to make sure you’re working with an insurance company that’s considered a headliner, not an opening act.

Events

Special events take place literally every day throughout the country, ranging in scope from a large, national draw that takes place once every few years, to smaller regional draws that happen every year on the same weekend. But whether it’s a one-time event, or something that that takes place over a series of weeks, American Specialty has seen—and covered—it all. Have a sports event? We have a program for that too!

Live Music Venues

Gone are the days when live music venues gravitated only to places like Los Angeles or Nashville. Today, live music venues are one of the fastest-growing segments of the entertainment niche and can be found in any metropolitan area in the country. Whether you need insurance for a jazz club, a honky-tonk gathering, or a venue that draws rock or Top 40 cover bands, we have just the ticket. Liquor liability is also available, and like all our programs, our live music venue program is written on admitted paper nationwide!

Movie Theaters

Nothing says entertainment like a good movie. Movie theaters bring us that big screen viewing experience that can’t be found anywhere else. Today, many movie theaters are drawing in customers with additional offerings like luxury seating fine-dining menus and craft cocktails. Some movie theaters offer bowling, kids play zones and private party rentals. At American Specialty, we say the more entertainment, the better! We meet the insurance needs of movie theaters across the entire spectrum, from traditional movie houses to those changing up the traditional viewing experience. Relax and enjoy the show while we deliver an insurance program worthy of its own premiere screening.
