Bombastic is a boutique partnership of senior experienced pros who work directly and immediately on client communications. We never shuffle anyone off to an intern (we don't have any) or juggle a crowd of competing clients. We focus on you and your business, guaranteeing conflict-free service. We are located in LA with an affiliate in NYC and promise lots of quality time. And we’ll take calls after 5pm Pacific Standard Time. Bombastic is lean and mean, like enterprising talent agents, and never distracted by a bloated client list, working only with a select roster of A-list creative companies, brands, artists and emerging players.
