Eric Symons, who partners with a predator named Steven R. Leflar, is a scammer and a complete cyber stalker.

He texted me once again just yesterday. This person co owns a company called Simply The Best Entertainment. He repeatedly texted me yesterday , even after I asked him to cease and desist.

 This is the same type of behavior his slimy partner Steve Leflar has engaged in. They both are child predators and they are both con artists and thieves. I personally know that Eric booked Pride and Joy, Hot House, Wall Street and many other bands that were never paid. 

 Simply the Best Entertainment was founded by Steve Leflar, who has a very long history of being a crook.

 Eric Symons and Cynthia Gretch, the two listed owners of the company are only the straw owners, and Steve Leflar controls their every move. 

 If you are a band or artist looking to work with either Eric or Steve, please stay away from Simply The Best Entertainment. [continued below]....

..... These two have stalked our family and both of these child predators deserve jail. I am calling ISES. a service orginazation Simply The Best Entertainment belongs to, so I can personally complain to them about STB Entertainment.

 Eric Symons and Steve Leflar have a very bad reputation. It is deserved.

What about Allegra and Far Niente winery

AUTHOR: Jennifer - ()

Dear Mr.Symon's

In 2010, you hired the services of Allegra Entertainment. You never paid them for those services. You worked with Steve Leflar and sent the contract to the owner, and the copy of that contract is on the internet, along with other victims you have conned.

It is very sad when everything you protest has no apologetic content. If clients are not working with Simply The Best Entertainment, perhaps you should reflect on your own lack of integrity as the cause.

It is very sad that youu seem to attack anyone who exposes your poor and dishonest business practices.

Accusing others says more about you than those you accuse.

The sad deflective antics of Eric Symons

AUTHOR: Richard - ()

 Eric Symons took possession of North Bay in 2008,with his partner in crime, Steve Leflar. It has come to our attention that Steve Leflar is now claiming he is 125 pound and at death's door. This is a lie. Eric Symons and Steve Leflar will blame Mr. Schoenberger, who is a successful composer, or Ron Israel, a soght after DJ.Sometimes, they blame a woman named Linda, or perhaps others. If you look closely, Eric Symons MO is to deflect, lie, blame and whine. It is nobody;s fault but his own that his business is not successful. Taking out his frustration on children, women, DJ's, composers, and anyone else who infuriates him is a futile endeavor. It would be amazing if Eric Symons took responsibility for his own failures.

 The real Eric Symons shows once again that he is a stalker who gang stalks with Steve Leflar.

 The real Eric Symons has stalked a minor since 2009, and now Symons wonders why nobody will have anything to do with him.

Ron Israel will fill you in on what Eric Symons and Steve Leflar did to him in 2012.  Ron lost his life savings due to the rip off Eric Symons and Steve Leflar committed.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Thomas Schoenberger Is Stalking me again!

AUTHOR: Eric Symons - ()


This most absurd post is not from a lady named Faranak. It is from Thomas Schoenberger. I met with the Rohnert Park Police yesterday to report Thomas' sending a message posing as the mother of his son Wolfgang. I received a text that Faranak was going to post that I was a a child predator form a 408 area code number. After coming back from working on events in Napa I answered this ridiculous accusation inviting Thomas and his ex to file a police report if this were true.

I parked in front of the station and of course they did not show up, so yesterday I filed a police report for false accusation of a very serious crime. My incident report is on file with the Rohnert Park Police. Mr. Schoenberger did not answer their calls.

Mr. Schoenbereger is using his son as a pawn in his war to get the following web sites off line:, and Mr. Schonberger, I do not own these sites nor can I help you with your request. He also left me threatening messages on my cell phone that will also be used in my court case.

Secondly, I have paid all of my contracts for my company. Cynthia Gretch does not even live in California and has not for some time. Mr. Schoenberger, cease and desist slandering my company, and I will see you in court sir soon!

By the way, the artists that you quote being owed are from North Bay Entertainment Contracts, which you were a 51% owner of that company!
