Scott Talarico

Currently serving NY, MD, PA
Contact Scott at

President and founder of Neon Entertainment for over twenty years, Scott Talarico has been operating the agency with continued success.  A native of Utica, New York, Scott graduated from Alfred University and chose to base Neon in Buffalo, NY for its active entertainment scene.

Scott oversees as an agent to the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Scott may be eternally busy with Neon’s large roster of musicians, comedians, poets, speakers, and novelty events, but he never forgets why it’s so important to stay dedicated:  he’s helping artists create their own niche in the entertainment market.  One of the most rewarding part of working in this field for Scott is being a first-hand witness to intense artist growth.

Scott brings a variety of skill and a high level of understanding of the business to his agency.  A musician in his own right (he plays the drums), he’s had experience in everything from radio sales to programming and concert production.  At Alfred he served as President of his college entertainment board, a valuable commodity when considering Neon’s large college business.  Working with these soon to be professionals also provides great insight to entertainment trends for the future.

Scott is also the manager to that adorable little guidette you might know as Snooki! All that press, photos, appearances, and world-wide recognition can be traced back to Scott and Neon Entertainment!

David Milberg

Contact David at

David began his NEON career in 2008. Before he came and joined our awesome company he was the Director of Student Life at 3 different colleges/ universities for over 20 years. He knows what it’s like on both sides of the fence!

A graduate of Iowa State University with a degree in Horticulture and a masters in Student Personnel, David also pursued his PhD in Higher Education. However,  as life had a different path for David he ended as an ABD candidate for his degree.

Most of Neon’s people have some sort of musical talent and David is no different. He plays the bass and also spends much of his time collecting and listening to records (you know, those big shiny black things).
