The People That Make The Magic Happen

Brian Harrison

Brian Harrison

Fair Coordinator, Stang Productions LLC
Brian Harrison is an event producer, who has worked in many positions in the events industry. Starting as a merchant on the festival circuit in 2016, he saw many styles of events, and wanted to create something better. From vending, to producing, Brian was ready to scale his growing productions company in 2020, then the world turned upside down. Coming back in 2022 with a new company and new partners, Mr. Harrison is ready to bring his events back bigger and better than ever. Utilizing unique talent, and an “artist first” mentality, the events Stang Productions LLC produces, will be rich in art, and talent.
Johnny Michalk VP of Marketing

Johnny Michalk

Marketing Director/Executive VP, Stang Productions LLC
Johnny Michalk has been involved in events almost as long as he could walk. In a grade school production, he was chosen to be the Master of Ceremonies, a task that he took very seriously. From there he moved to the stage for school plays, and into the choir, performing in many productions throughout his youth. As an adult he’s taken on more roles: as a DJ, vendor at events, event planner and event security, giving him a rounded knowledge of many aspects in event production. In 2018 Johnny began his studies in digital marketing, which have prepared him to meet the challenges of his position with Stang Productions LLC in bringing forward an amazing experience blending art and music into something truly magical.
Janet Michalk VP of Creative Development

Janet Michalk

Vendor Coordinator/Customer Success Manager, Stang Productions LLC
One of Janet's fondest memories is from when she was a child and she and her mom would sit in front of the radio for hours, playing the same record over and over so that they could transcribe the lyrics to the songs that her dad would play on guitar as part of a band in the local bars. Janet has a passion for helping others, and pairing that with her love of music and art has her prepared for her role with Stang Productions.
