"Gary and his team have been instrumental to our success at radio. They have gone above and beyond for us and we are extremely grateful for that. As an independent band on a budget, we were very happy with the way that things were managed. We were able to accomplish everything we set out to with Gary's help. Everything is completely transparent throughout the process, and most importantly, they get results. Gary and the team showed true passion for the music and the band. We never felt like we were a number with Land Shark and we've found that to be a rarity in this industry! We couldn't be happier with our experience, and hope that we are fortunate enough to work with them again."
- Chris Dawson/Seasons After

"We've gone from zero to ONE HUNDRED with Land Shark Promotion over the last two years. The Capitol Music Group's Active & Mainstream Rock airplay chart share has soared over that time period, in no small part due to Gary and his team's dedication to their craft and sheer hard work .
We are glad they are part of our team."
- Ray Gmeiner / VP Promotion, Capitol Music Group

- Michael Papale/Prospect Park
"The amazing success of the Chickenfoot project has been an incredible team effort. Gary Jay and Land Shark Promotion quarterbacked that team. From the first time Mick Brigden endorsed Land Shark, Sammy Hagar and I have seen nothing but positive results. It's been two years of great results and a smooth day-to-day working relationship makes my job a pleasure. Land Shark is the promo poster child of the new model."
- Carter (manager/Sammy Hagar, Chickenfoot)
"Once I worked with them the first time, I wanted to hire them again because of their passion, work-ethic, and results! Land Shark attacks like a great white and never lets go!"

- Kevin Morin, KILLINGER
"Hiring Land Shark Promotion for radio promotion in the U.S. has been very helpful for our band. It allowed the band to be recognized as a well-established Canadian band and has brought the band places it had never been before. It opened the horizon completely for The Counselors and allowed us to play on numerous commercial radio stations in the U.S. that would not have played our music otherwise. Give it up for Land Shark, and Gary, whose commitment to his bands and their music is just astonishing. I would recommend Land Shark to anyone who would like to have their band playing on very important and influential radio stations in the U.S."
- Sebastien (The Counselors)
"Thank you Land Shark for all your incredible support and the crucial role you played in getting to this (RIAA-certified GOLD) milestone!"
- Mark Phillips/Prospect Park (co-manager, Five Finger Death Punch)
"Land Shark are the best rock promotion team in today’s world. No bullshit. That is all you need to know.
Gary, John, and the team have delivered three Top 20 Mainstream Rock tracks on the gold CHICKENFOOT album, and our fourth any day now, plus two #1 Classic Rock tracks, and 30,000+ spins and counting!"
- Mick Brigden, Joe Satriani Manager/Chickenfoot Co-Manager
"Working with Land Shark has been a total joy. To be able to take an indie label and an unknown band to the Top 10 in just 8 weeks is truly amazing. They have gone the extra mile for us and our band and we will for sure be working with them on our next singles! Total Professionals!"
- Jimmy Swan, VP Executive Music Group/EMG (The Dirty Heads)

"Land Shark Promotion has been an invaluable part of the promotion and marketing mix of our artists for nearly two years. Gary, John, and Matt are proactive as well as passionate. They have enviable relationships at radio, years of experience, and always think outside the box. They are go-to guys that deliver for us week after week. I look forward to sharing the success Eleven Seven Music with my partners at Land Shark Promotion for years to come!"
- Steve Kline, Eleven Seven Music
"It is not common that a band from Finland which plays cello has a record deal in the USA, but having a #1 record on active rock radio - this is absolutely new for any Scandinavian band whatsoever. Therefore, the band and myself want to say THANK YOU for your hard work on Apocalyptica.You should know that, even three years ago the band never wanted to go to the U.S.A. Now, within two singles and eight months of work, you turned this around. Everybody in the band loves being there, and they are totally overwhelmed by the team working for them. Every day they tell me they have never met a more friendly and highly-professional set up!"
- Ulysses, Halbe Miete Management (Apocalyptica)
"As a manager, I truly rely on my team around my clients to get things done quickly and accurately. I am excited and fortunate to have Land Shark as a part of my team! They do a great job and I can't wait to work with them more on other promotions for my other clients!"
- Julie Shama, Black Unicorn Music

- Andrea Mulrain, SARATHAN Records
"Along with offering expertise and directing us down the correct road of
metal mania with our first rock release,
what they did with radio and press for A Band Called Pain was nothing
short of a miracle!
I look forward to working with 'em again in the near future."
Kelly, HIERO IMPERIUM
"You've done a great job with our record and working with you has been easy, as well as professional."
