Kelvin Bland, Founder and Managing Director of KLB Group LLC, brings over 29 years of entertainment industry experience. His humble beginnings in the blue-collar epicenter of St.Louis helped shaped his hard work demeanor and dedication to excellence that is the essence of the identity and backbone of the company still today.
As a Specialist (SPC) in the United States Army at the youthful age of seventeen, Kelvin's innate work ethic laid the foundation for success for all his future endeavors. Honorably discharged, Kelvin knew that his next path in life would not be in the traditional 8-5 work of his rearing environment. Rather, Kelvin's destiny was defined early in life through his childhood friendship with Cedric Kyles aka Cedric the Entertainer...a friendship that would lead to an illustrious and ground breaking business relationship!!
Since that moment, the KLB Group LLC has played an instrumental management role in the iconic career of a worldwide entertainer. From the national success of the Budweiser Comedy Tour to the record-breaking The Original Kings of Comedy, an extensive portfolio of fan revered television series and films, to the currently running Cedric the Entertainer and Friends sold-out national tour. Currently, the business savvy founder has expanded the company into Event Consultation and VIP Destination Management. Kelvin Bland continues to raise the industry bar for superior entertainment & event management.
