Welcome to Associated Entertainment Sacramento! As Director of Operations, I look forward to providing our clients with the absolute best entertainment and event planning services in Northern California. I am proud to be a member of this distinguished team of entertainment professionals at AEC. In this highly competitive entertainment industry, I have built a client list of satisfied customers thanks largely to referrals and repeat business. Word of mouth is truly our best advertising. I always strive to give all clients, whether they are a first time talent buyer planning an intimate wedding, or an experienced event planner coordinating a national conference -- the best value for their budget, combined with superior service. In every aspect of event planning, attention to detail is what makes for a successful and truly memorable event.

In addition to corporations, we have had the opportunity to work with many of the local fundraising agencies such as American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make A Wish Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Ronald McDonald Charities, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and United Way, to name just a few.
Who is Steve Bloom?
2005 marks my 25th year in the entertainment business. Beginning in 1980 as a guitar player in country western bands, I was able to help pay my way through college by playing weekends at weddings and small nightclubs across Northern California. Graduating from U.C. Davis in 1984, I continued to “pay my dues” in the club circuit playing and singing in some of Northern California’s top cover bands, including Rhythm & Blues groups, Motown reviews, and Top 40 acts. Moving into a position of bandleader and manager in 1996, I became involved in forming the popular dance & show band “Hip Service,” based in Sacramento, CA.
Over the past 9 years, Hip Service has become “the band-in-demand” for corporate and private events. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with some of the best entertainers in the business and coordinate entertainment and production for many national acts, concerts, fundraisers, and state government events. When Governor-elect Schwarzenegger came into office, he called upon Hip Service to perform at the inaugural events and dinners, as well as coordinate additional entertainment for his events. Hip Service has been featured in numerous print, radio, and TV media throughout Northern California.
As Hip Service became increasing popular, established clients with whom I had worked over the years were requesting my services to procure and coordinate entertainment acts for all types of events. Increasingly, a variety of musical styles and production was needed for many venues that extended beyond the Hip Service show. Over the years, I continued to build a strong reputation for service and reliability, working with Sacramento’s top event and convention service vendors. With the outstanding Associated Entertainment Consultants team, we look forward to providing our clients with the highest quality entertainment and personalized service.
Associated Entertainment is a member of the SCVB – Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the BBB – Better Business Bureau of Northern California.
When I’m not working, I enjoy my family time with my wife and 3-year-old son. I am a private pilot in my spare time, flying anything with wings. We live just outside of Sacramento on 5 acres in beautiful Amador County near the Shenandoah Valley, with Dodzi, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, Casey, a sheepdog mix, and 2 unnamed goldfish.
