For generations of New Yorkers, no three words evoke iconic live music like 'Ron Delsener Presents'—the words that preceded the name of every major act playing New York, from the Beatles at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium to David Bowie at Carnegie Hall and Patti Smith at the Palladium. Director Jake Sumner pulls back the curtain on Delsener’s empire-building sixty-year career, as told by the concert promoter and showman himself. Taking audiences on a tour through a half-century of live music, RON DELSENER PRESENTS is a portrait of a music business pioneer who, to this day, can't stop hustling.
