Hello I am Antonio Chalmers aka Tone Da Boss, CEO of T1 Entertainment, 2017.

I am an artist turned DJ and Manager. As an artist I was able to travel through the country, sell many records, perform in front of large crowds, and work with multiplatinum artist and producers. And although never signed a record deal we did everything independently. For the last 10 years I had to learn how to be my own manager, book performances, higher djs, travel, market music, distribute music, network, and so fourth. At this point in my life I am ready to give back and share my knowledge, experiences and more to anyone in the entertainment industry.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about T1 Entertainment, what it is and what it means. T1 Entertainment is simply a brand, not a record label. Designed to elevate, discover and provide exposure to artist, entertainers, producers, managers, models, Djs, Photographers, videographers, podcasters, and many more.

T1 Entertainment stands for top tier. Top tier services, top tier artist, top tier entertainment.





Services available to everyone under the T1 Entertainment brand are management, booking, writing, recording, distribution, web design, logo design, publishing, marketing, flyers, business cards, videography, editing, photoshoots, Djs, sounds, and so much more. Theres are just a few you can inquire about.



When T1 Entertainment was just Tone Da Boss apart of Big Bang as artists they received over 1 million youtube hits collectively. Have performed all over Iowa, Atlanta, Arizona, New York, and  Las Vegas.  Consistent max capacity performances throughout the city of Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. Successfully booked the Ampitheatre, the U.S. Cellular Center and more. Has multiple singles on the radio. Still brings in $1000s of dollars monthly from songs recorded 10+ years ago,. Worked with Multiplatinum artist such as Wiz Khalifa, G-Unit, Young Money, the late Nate Dogg and more.  Have shot professional videos in different states and went viral on several occasions.  With that experience comes alot of trials and errors. The reason of starting T1 Entertainment is to educate artist on the successes and failures, provide options with pros and cons utilizing the past experiences to further each client.


What I can do for you

We break this down into 4 quadrants. Branding, Development, Marketing, and Distribution. With these quadrants in no particular order all bases are covered for artist. Getting the maximized exposure. Becoming a better artist. Accomplishing goals. Moving forward in the music industry. With these steps instilled in each artist the become more than just an artist but a business, or a brand. After these are perfected the sky is the limit and the goal is to outgrow T1 Entertainment.
