David T. Viecelli

The Billions Corporation
Chicago, IL, USA
David Viecelli (a.k.a. Boche Billions) founded leading independent booking agency The Billions Corporation in Chicago in 1989. Relying upon the American stereotype of Canadians as polite and neighborly for cover, the truly cantankerous and curmudgeonly Viecelli aggressively built a minuscule company into a tiny one over the course of two decades. Among those snared in this fiendish plot are the Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, Bon Iver, Death Cab For Cutie, Vampire Weekend, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Neko Case, The Swell Season, Sufjan Stevens and Fleet Foxes. Similarly, nobody bothered to stop him from founding the Billions Australia agency partnership in 1999 or Lever and Beam, a New York-based artist management partnership in 2009, either.
