Since its founding in 1994 as full service production company, Teev Events has built a solid reputation and is now recognized as the leading Israeli music agency, production, and management company in North America. Teev has amassed experience working in varied venues with diverse clients and artists. Teev Events caters to its clients' needs with personal attention and a sense of urgency regardless of the size or scope of the event.
Teev Events was founded by two young Israeli immigrants, David Azulay and Ephi Atia, who missed the Israeli culture they grew up with. Over the years, Ephi moved on to explore other opportunities and David continued to develop the company. Teev grew into a solid, multi-faceted agency, managing, booking, and producing in a variety of genres of music, dance, and drama.
From the beginning, Teev aimed to bring high quality Israeli culture to help unite the American and Israeli Jewish communities as well as the American community at large by offering extraordinary events that they could enjoy together. Teev is dedicated to introducing American audiences to the highest quality, most cutting edge, and diverse Israeli culture. Teev has worked with performing arts centers, Jewish organizations, universities, and mainstream music and cultural festivals throughout North-, Central-, and South America. Together with many organizations, it presented hundreds of shows attended by hundreds of thousands of people, some of whom have never heard or seen any Israeli artists before.
In the last two decades, David and Teev have managed and developed the North American careers of megastar artists like the Idan Raichel Project, Hadag Nahash, Noa, Rita, Rami Kleinstein and others and played a very instrumental role in their success.
It was only natural that Teev Events and David Azulay produced some of the biggest events for the Jewish and Israeli community. Among the hundreds of shows, some of the most notable were:
In addition to its work with Israeli artists, Teev has worked with internationally acclaimed artists such as Sting, Billy Joel, Patty Labelle, and Donna Summer to name a few. Teev has produced and managed events for many Fortune 500 companies and organizations throughout the U.S., including the USTA US Open in Flushing Meadows, NY, and the inauguration of President George W. Bush in Washington, DC.
In 2010 David and Teev ventured into producing its first Broadway style show and together with creator Ilan Azriel produced the American version of the Aluminum Show. Re-creating this show for an international audience was a big challenge as it had to be accomplished in two countries and in record time. David completely overhauled the show: auditioned American dancers in NYC and brought them to Israel for a three-month rehearsal period and oversee the design of a brand new set, composition of new music, and the creation of all new choreography and a beautiful new lighting design that made this show stand out as a “visually stunning” show. The Aluminum Show enjoyed a very successful six month tour in the USA and went on to perform all over the world. Just in the last three years, it has played before raving fans and critics alike in Spain, Italy, Russia, Canada, England, Brazil and many more.
