Ryan Soroka

Booking Agent
United Talent Agency

Soroka began promoting shows at just 13 years old in his hometown of North Caldwell, NJ, where he would rent out VFW Halls to host local shows. By high school, he was able to foster such a consistent community of music fans, that larger national acts began drawing to the area, leading him to bigger and better opportunities and the decision to switch gears and begin booking national tours for bands.

Soroka went on to graduate from the Wharton School of Business at University of Pennsylvania, all while booking bands and developing his own agency, turning his once part-time hobby into a full-fledged career and quickly made a name for himself through his unparalleled work ethic, passion, and persistence.

In 2007, Soroka teamed up with rising west coast booking agent Brad Wiseman to officially form The Soroka Agency. He was recently picked up by United Talent Agency.
