Why not Florida?
Because you are doing most of the your business in New Jersey, you said. However, there is no reason why you could not establish the LLC in Florida if you prefer.

Last question, if I get a LLC in NJ, can I still work shows in Florida? Thanks

Last question, if I get a LLC in NJ, can I still work shows in Florida? Thanks

 

Response: Yes. However, you must first register the New Jersey LLC in Florida. Same thing if you create the LLC in Florida. You must register the Florida LLC in New Jersey in order to do business in New Jersey.
