There will be never-before-seen contracts of the stars, and guitars signed by Clark, Jackson, the Oak Ridge Boys and even rock ’n’ roll giants such as Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones and the Doobie Brothers. Halsey Co. posters, artist rosters and artist development plans will further reveal his dedication to his clients and the music industry, organizers said. After Halsey sold his company to the William Morris Agency, he founded the Jim Halsey Institute, which focuses on helping others pursue their dreams in the music industry. In "Starmaker,” released by Tate Publishing this month, Halsey shares secrets he learned while shepherding stars’ careers. The book delves into the fundamentals of how to develop an act, how to get an agent, how to use the press to build an audience and how to play the biggest and best forums. It is available at bookstores (including online sites) or from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore. Halsey continues to manage the Oak Ridge Boys. When he is not traveling, teaching or writing, he lives near Tulsa with his wife, Minisa. Exhibit sponsors are the George Kaiser Family Foundation, Tulsa Chamber of Commerce, Mustang Fuel Corp., Tate Publishing, BluBlocker Corp. and Oklahoma History Center.
