In July of 2013 Mr. Regna celebrates his 42nd anniversary in the music, film and family entertainment business. In the field of live performance, he is credited with promoting the first "classic rock" concert on October 14, 1971 in Jersey City, New Jersey. At that time, the classic rock acts were those such as Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others. In the mid-80's a radio station in Ohio continued this concept by making the artists of the 70's and 80's the current classic rock acts of that time. This concept continues on today with many fine concert promoters, radio stations and television networks building the overall concept, that being the two decades before the current time being their classic rock acts.
In addition to world touring, Mr. Regna has also represented some of the greatest names in entertainment in the diverse field of sound and video recording.
