Jon Harry Bayouth is highly regarded as a purveyor of fine food and true visionary, award-winning event producer, entrepreneur, and founder of Industry Events, Inc. He is reputed for masterfully crafting and directing the ideal company event.
Jon Harry grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a natural charmer and born leader blessed with a sales prowess that cannot be taught and only gets stronger every day. His addiction to hard work is equally impressive as his sales talent.
At a very young age, Jon Harry acquired the business essentials of product knowledge, honest business, and charisma, which accelerated a true entrepreneurial spirit throughout his life. His parents Harry, Margaret Louise Bayouth, taught him not to show any discrimination, regardless of the difference.
John’s affinity for people helped initiate and spark his passion for his long career in the service and hospitality industry. He graduated from Oklahoma State (where he was voted “Big Man on Campus” and inter-fraternity president his senior year) with a hotel and restaurant management degree. After graduating, he began his career working in the cabaret room for the Hilton Hotel in his hometown of Tulsa.
He was quickly recognized and was soon promoted to manager of the cabaret, overseeing a 400-seat dinner theater, complete with fine dining and entertainment. Along with dinner, he produced and presented live performances by famous stars such as Tina Turner, Della Reese, The Four Tops, and many others.
Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit, Jon Harry became his own boss in the late seventies by opening Ziegfield’s “The Showroom of the Stars.” Ziegfield was an instant success and became the hottest ticket in Tulsa and the entire Midwest.
In his early twenties, Jon Harry used his personality and raw production talent to book legendary entertainers in a city outside of Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. A few of these legendary Ziegfield’s performers include Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, BB King, Ray Charles, Loretta Lynn, Frankie Vale, George Carlin, Greg Alman, Leon Russell, Little Richard, The Pointer Sisters, The Righteous Brothers, and The Temptations, just to name a few.
Jon Harry followed his lifelong ambition of exhibiting his talents in the Western United States, particularly in Los Angeles, California, following a legendary run in Tulsa. Mr. Bayouth has always stated he was destined for the “City of Angels.”
His first Western residence was in Denver, Colorado, constituting the corporate party planning aspect of his career by producing company events, in the thousands, for organizations such as IBM and Martin Marietta.
In 1990, Jon Harry made his dream a reality by moving his family to Los Angeles, California, beginning his historic and current run as one of Southern California’s legendary event producers.
Combining his extensive entertainment and production experience with his natural creativity, imagination, and resourcefulness, he made Industry Events a corporate event production and party planning juggernaut.
With decades of event dexterity, Jon Harry Bayouth differentiates himself from other event planners as each party is addressed from a production standpoint. This special skill set, thus, assures all elements of your company party to be expertly handled, creating an impeccable event.
