Who Is ESE?


ESE was founded by Alexa Ahrem and Jonathan Monk in 2012 for the sole purpose of helping their DJ friends get booked for events. Jon & Alexa realized that to truly grow, they were better off hosting their own events. The company quickly turned into a full-service event production company.

Growing as an event production company, ESE solidified a sturdy foundation. ESE now leverages that foundation by partnering with promoters, festivals, artists, and clubs to provide full-scale marketing support, PR, creative marketing initiatives, digital marketing strategies, strategic partnerships, and more.

ESE prides itself on being the marketing partner that YOU can count on.

Your event, is our event.


ESE is a full-scale content marketing firm catering to festivals, events, venues & artists in the Electronic Music world.

(B2B) Business to Business 


We help you sell your event, services, music, or your brand. This is done by leveraging all digital marketing channels to get your message out into the world with streamlined communication.  However, there is a lot to this. Because there are millions of other people trying to do the same thing as you, simply putting your message out there is just as useless as not doing it at all; you need to rise above the noise and stand out. There are three main focuses we can work with you on to make that happen:

Marketing has many moving parts. From e-mail marketing and social media strategy to targeted Facebook advertising and procurement of strategic partnerships. Full-scale marketing strategy development and execution is a specialty.

You need materials that are both visually appealing and informative whether its for blogging, graphic design, or something else. We create materials that help you standout & clearly communicate your messages.

Making the most of your digital presence is important. Optimizing your website, optimizing for search engines, optimizing your social media pages, and more.
