The entertainment comes to town
After working in the restaurant business all his life, Ruben Bravo is used to serving people.

But recently, Bravo decided it was time to add entertainment to the menu, by starting his own promotion company.

In February, he launched Bravo Entertainment to bring events to Conyers, after serving as front-end manager and special event planning coordinator of Los Charros Mexican Restaurants.

The new company is in its first promotion as comedian Chris Thomas comes to Club 908 at 908 Commercial St. in Old Town Conyers.

Thomas, an impressionist of the likes of Denzel Washington, Mike Tyson, Orson Wells and others, has appeared in music videos and films and has a syndicated radio show, "The Chris Thomas Comedy Hour."

The event is the first of a three-month association between 908 and Bravo, which will bring K-Dub and Friends to the establishment on April 16 and another event on May 21.

Bravo will then look to expand his company to venues where he can bring talent to perform.

"I'm hoping to do bigger things," Bravo said. "Right now I'm taking little steps.

I want to get Conyers up to date on Atlanta lifestyle, by doing stuff (like I'm doing), and eventually moving up to maybe the horse park, and bringing a bigger name to the horse park with events."

Bravo said he wants to make Conyers a destination for quality entertainment.

"I want to bring revenue to Conyers, and also put the name on people's lips when they say Conyers and the entertainment that comes out here."

Bravo was always into entertainment and the nightlife of Conyers and Atlanta, but the business idea just came to him one day.

"I woke up one day and said, "maybe I should start doing what I want to do,' "Bravo said.

He then used the contacts he made from going out to various clubs and establishments to begin his new venture as CEO and President of Bravo Entertainment.
