EC Model & Talent Agency is a division of Entertainment Caterers, Inc., formed as a DBA in 1991, incorporated in 1998 and licensed as a Florida State Talent Agency TA#682 in 2001. We have parlayed 20 years+ of expert talent recruitment and placement skills to bring you the most cost-effective resource for talent sourcing and securing local, regional, national and international professional performers.
We are not the only agency in town. You have many other options. There are several other quality agencies offering same and similar services, but most are "fly by night", unlicensed and uninsured. You can even contact many talents directly through a simple Google search. However, most performers do not excel in customer service. This is because top talents hire professional agents like us, so they have more time to focus on their acts. More importantly, they generally do not carry proper insurance. Finally, they often work second jobs and are not readily available leading up to your event date. Do you want to bypass our professional agency service and all that comes with it, only to save 10-20%? The potential repercussions could cost you MUCH more!
We leave nothing to chance. You will have full access to your account representative through the completion of your event. We have backup talent in place in case of emergency. We understand that things can change on the drop of a dime, and are flexible within reason. We employ a strict talent screening process to insure that you are only contracting the very best performers.
"Our Mission is to provide you not only with the best talent and customer service, but also with a positive, memorable event."

Entertainment Caterers, Inc. was founded in 1991 by Sean McCabe, a seasoned veteran in the corporate entertainment industry. Sean is familiar with both sides of the stage as a guitarist, emcee, DJ, producer, stage manager, technician and talent agent.
We are a licensed, bonded and insured Talent Agency #682 with over 20 years of event planning experience. We provide world class talent to the major theme parks in Orlando, the top casinos on the Las Vegas Strip and assorted venues coast to coast and abroad.
