Gulf Coast Entertainment: Trust. Care. Experience.

With nearly 45 years in the business, Gulf Coast Entertainment brings the highest level of personalization and care, unmatched in the industry. Founded in 1979 by Susie Criner as an evolution of her work in booking musical entertainment for her iconic nightclub in Houston, Rockefeller’s, Gulf Coast Entertainment quickly became the “go-to” resource for live entertainment in Texas and beyond.

GCE proudly represents the buyer of entertainment, ensuring alignment with the client’s best interests. Rather than stepping back once the ink dries, we stay involved and advocate for you every step of the way, from inquiry to strike, delivering a white glove service with unparalleled attention to details and transparency.
