NEW YORK — SFX Entertainment Inc. announced Monday it will shutter its music talent representation business, based mainly at its QBQ subsidiary, which was acquired last spring through SFX’s purchase of the Marquee Group.

QBQ president Dennis Arfa will leave SFX with his stable of artists to pursue “additional business opportunities.” Arfa’s roster of clients include Billy Joel, Metallica, Luther Vandross and Motley Crue.

SFX said it will focus its personal representation business on athletes and broadcasters through its other subsids. In the area of live entertainment, the company said it will devote its efforts to presentation, promotion and touring activities.
