Mathews Entertainment and Event is an elite provider of Las Vegas-style concerts, vintage supper club entertainment, and full-length professional Broadway musical productions.
Originally founded as Salerno Theatre/Salerno Entertainment in 2003 (which began as a humble start-up theatre in the Tampa Bay, Florida area and quickly grew to a professional regional touring company), we enjoy the unique distinction of being endorsed by many of the “Who’s Who” in the world of professional entertainment. Our full-scale productions have toured throughout the Southeast playing to regional performing arts centers, dinner theatres, country clubs, intimate venues, fine restaurants and large 55+ communities.
We are proud to have been selected by Fortune 500 companies, affluent senior facilities and event planners.
With diverse offerings tailored to fit most budgets for entertainment such as Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin non-impersonation tribute events, to upscale musical reviews such as our acclaimed flagship production of BROADWAY IN CONCERT and smash-hit COAST-2-COAST: HITSVILLE, USA featuring the best music of the 50’s and 60’s, Mathews Entertainment boasts high-energy selections that cater to virtually any adult audience.
Every available show in our lineup (except licensed Broadway musicals) is fully customizable for your specific needs – from the number of vocalists and dancers to the length of the show itself (most shows available in 55,85 and 120-minute lengths with or without intermission).
We pride ourselves in forming very special relationships with performing arts venues – both large and small.
In an industry traditionally built on business models that often make financial success in an artistic world difficult, Mathews Entertainment is geared towards ensuring both artistic and financial success for all parties.
With that in mind, Mathews Entertainment has built its business model with flexibility and inclusion in mind. Our events may be booked for flat fees as part of standard season offerings or, for qualified venues, as special event and/or dark performance day fundraisers on a minimum guarantee and split ticket arrangement.
We also have several performance options available for one night private functions, fine restaurants, event planners, senior communities and fundraising organizations.

Mathews Entertainment’s production of BROADWAY IN CONCERT was very professional and up to the standard of our [Straz Center For The Performing Arts] produced shows. It was the best non-Center produced and presented show I’ve ever seen. The audience loved it and responded after each and every number…
As a fine, intimate and authentic French restaurant located in the heart of the “Horse Capital of the World” Ocala, FL, there is a certain level of quality, ambiance and experience that our very discerning patrons expect. As they say, the road to the Kentucky Derby starts in Ocala. Because of that, we serve guests from all around the globe as well as our regular local clientele. As they currently make their home in Ocala when they are not on tour, we’ve been so fortunate to have Michael and Jessica perform for us when their schedules allow for almost 2 years. Our guests simply love their smooth, vintage vocals which range from the very best of the Great American Songbook, Jazz, Broadway and more. Their talent and song choices are impeccable and they make sure that every one of our guests have a wonderful experience. Their music is the perfect complement to fine cuisine and upscale atmosphere. For obvious reasons, they have quite the following and we look forward to having them a part of the La Cuisine Family as long as their schedules allow.
