What Is Street Spirit Entertainment?
Street Spirit Entertainment is a Tampa-based, full-service booking agency that was founded in 2013. Built upon years of experience, it was formed with the mission of providing customer-service based talent booking services that cater to each client and their specific needs. Licensed, bonded, and insured, SSE has successfully booked and promoted thousands of shows over the years all while keeping the process stress-free for clients and well-suited to the talents of each individual performer. With a focus on Tampa Bay and with knowledge and resources to service all of central and south Florida, SSE has grown year over year. With organic growth based on referrals from existing satisfied customers, SSE has flourished since its beginning and it constantly looks to improve and grow its services and talent roster.
“The challenge of this business, but the part of this business that is one of the most enjoyable to me, is constantly finding new and fresh talent. To service our clients to the best of our abilities, we must provide the best talent. We must. And while our talent roster is already deep and highly talented, we constantly strive to connect with new talent that we can then vet and establish a rapport with so that we can confidently put them on bookings that are a match for their skill set. This leads to happy musicians and happy clients.”
Christopher C. Harman, founder and President of Street Spirit Entertainment, has been booking talent in the Tampa Bay area for over 25 years.

Bringing years of experience to the table as both an entertainer and a talent booker, he took all the lessons he learned along the way and created an agency that provides the best service to both venues and entertainers alike.
With a CV that includes Concerts Director for the University of South Florida, Lead Sound Engineer for the Grand Opening Team at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa, record deals and publishing deals as an entertainer, and degrees in both Finance and Economics, he has a deep well of experience that drives Street Spirit Entertainment to cater to all clients and provide the expertise each client needs to successfully program entertainment all while taking the inherent stress out of the process.
“Some of my favorite moments are those when my clients tell me that they don’t know how they did it before me. I know how stressful booking entertainment can be but this is the professional world which I have always inhabited. When I can take that element out of the equation for my already very busy clients all while employing extremely talented entertainers that are just what my clients wanted, then I have achieved the professional satisfaction that I strive for everyday. It’s a good feeling, a feeling that drives the success of Street Spirit Entertainment, and it’s a feeling that I get to experience often through the faith and confidence of my clients and the trust of my entertainers.”
