SANTA ROSA, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Veteran booker Rick Bartalini has left his position at the Wells Fargo Center For The Arts after an 11-year stint booking the venue.
Neither Bartalini nor officials at the WFC were willing to comment on why Bartalini left, but WFC spokeswoman Kristi Buffo told the a local newspaper that the venue would continue business as usual.
“We're every bit as committed as we have in the past to provide headline entertainment,” Buffo told the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat “It's something this community has enjoyed and something Rick was instrumental in bringing to this area. We want it to continue.”
Bartalini said that he did not have a new position lined up yet and Buffo said that his departure was not related to ticket sales or economic woes at the Center. According to Buffo, other staff members at the WFC will step into to help book the venue. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
