Who is Rainmaker?
Local insurance agent, Michael Cavale, started producing shows in Visalia in 1995 as a means to bring positive entertainment to Visalia for his three sons, which then branched out to benefit concerts for local charities. In 2006, a local news story on Cavale referred to him as a "rainmaker" for his ability to attract quality acts.
Ryan Stillwater learned the ropes of live entertainment from the ground up from mentors like Cavale while spending seven years at the Visalia Fox Theatre, three of them as the in-house Talent Buyer. Stillwater now resides in Bend, Oregon with his family and works full-time with, Saving Grace, a nonprofit organization.. He has also been operating his own record label and artist management company, Romanced Records, since 2004. (@RStillwater)
