Founder Keijo ‘K.O.’ Niinimaa is best known from Rotten Sound, Nasum farewell tour and Morbid Evils, but he has a long history of bands in his past since 1988. Keijo has been a powerhouse in all of his bands, has been recording to labels since 1993 and is also touring around the world constantly while he books, produces and manages his own shows. Max Mana has also tons of other resources for any starting, stuck or established operation.

K.O. is a fan of (financial) planning and diy-approach when necessary to make a tour happen despite low resources. He is also very comfortable with computers, spreadsheets, contract negotiations and working with people. Sometimes he might have a know-it-all-hat on, but even then he wants to listen to the artist needs and wants them to do whatever feels best for them.
