The Winter Jam Concert is going to be “one of the biggest shows to come to Bowling Green,” said Desmond Bell, who works for Horseman Entertainment.

Carpenter said he and Bell have known each other for a long time, and it was Bell’s contacts at Horseman Entertainment that made the Winter Jam happen.

“He saw how me and the rest of my friends of Startin5ive were hosting a lot of successful events on WKU’s campus … which in the long run led both of us to collaborate, especially since he as well has a long history of hosting events,” Carpenter said.

Both Bell and Carpenter are anticipating that the concert will be popular with people of all ages.

“I believe with the right networking and word of mouth everything will fall into place,” Carpenter said. “Startin5ive and Horseman Entertainment will work together to make this a successful event, and hopefully the community will support us.”
