“In an industry filled with greedy sharks and egos, there sometimes comes along a break from the conventional ways of doing things, and that break is Melinda Morris Zanoni and Legacy Talent and Entertainment.  Although it’s a ‘business’, it is often forgotten in this industry that at the end of the day, it’s people doing that ‘business’, and there tends to be a rigid manner in which deals are negotiated and brought to fruition.  After being a live event producer and promoter for 8 years and having dealt with various talent representation, Melinda and her team are a breath of fresh air in every way.  From start to finish, my dealings with Melinda and her team had a refreshing ‘personal’ feel to them. We were not just ‘doing business’ – we were people working together as a team for a common goal:  to create the best results possible for all involved.  Melinda is one of a kind and someone who I look forward to working with as often as possible.  She is a true professional through and through, and most of all, a true gem.”

“When Joe Laurinatitis and I were in the final stages of putting his life story together.  I came across a sharp talent manager and attorney Melinda Morris Zanoni, and her company Legacy Talent and Entertainment.  I emailed an inquiry to Legacy for a short interview to be included in our book, and the response was almost immediate.  Melinda gave me a call, we had a great chat, and Melinda set up an interview for the following week.  She made sure to call right on time.  Suffice to day, they delivered big, and left me with some great stories for the book along with the feeling we too were long time friends.  I owe it all to Melinda.  Melinda Morris Zanoni is a credit to anyone who works with her.  All clients of Legacy Talent and Entertainment can rest easy knowing their best interests are being superbly represented.  Legacy makes things happen!”

“We wanted to write to tell you about the grand opening event Legacy Talent arranged.

The event was attended by over 3500 people who traveled from all over NC and three other states and stood in line for hours.

On a personal note, Melinda, I have dealt with many different people throughout the course of my career, and I must say I have never dealt with a more professional sincere person as yourself.  You did a great job representing your client and you can tell you have the best personal interest at heart, but you also did a fantastic job helping us maximize the Legacy Entertainment experience.  You have surrounded yourself with good people that make a great team.  We have enjoyed working with you every step of the way and just truly wanted to express our sincere appreciation to you and Ashley.”
