About

At TrueHooligan Entertainment, we love sound. In fact, we love it so much that we can’t possibly contain it, and we want to share our acoustic message to everyone all over the world. Sometimes even with still & moving images included! Hopefully, these combinations of sights & sounds will make you feel all the things inside that you thought were shriveled up and dead forever. Whatever emotions come bubbling up, if we’ve gotten you to feel again, then we’ve successfully done our job.

TrueHooligan represents the newest and brightest creators in the industry. With operations currently based in the Midwest, out of the city of Chicago, we are proud to be working with partners located from coast to coast, from the sandy beaches of Southern California, to the massive metropolis of New York City. We strive to build a Portfolio of unique, high-quality audiovisual content that expresses stories worth telling, from folks whose voices are worth hearing.

Personal Bio:

Dennis G. Potamianos

Dennis G. Potamianos

Owner & CEO

This fellow is the owner & sometimes not-so-beautiful mind behind this endeavor. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, but always seeking adventure in the world, he fell in love with both music and film at an early age. Specifically, how the two can combine to form something more meaningful and magical together. It is his dream to bring a little more of that magic into the world for everyone willing to listen & look.

Thank / blame him for everything you see & hear from this point, forward. So, grab some friends, sit back, get up, do whatever you must to enjoy yourself to the fullest. From first to last call, we’ll be here for it all.
