Connecting the dots for Independent Music Artists!
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
What started out as just a networking event with live music has quickly developed into the main venue to help independent music artists get a once in a lifetime chance to perform their best tracks in front of some of the biggest music and entertainment industry heavy weights. What's even more impressive is not that the venue itself, the Gibson Guitar Studios is where artists like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson and the hottest new acts record. but that artists that have performed in the last 4 months since the showcase launched, have already landed major record deals, and gained paying gigs all as a result of The Big Apple Indie Music Series event and the connections they gained there.
Jon Landers, a self-taught graphic designer and songwriter, started out to just want to bring music together with networking. When he met Brian Jaccoma from TalentArmy (http://www.TalentArmy.com) (a multiple award winning entertainment executive), that changed completely to what is now becoming the place for aspiring artists to perform for the chance to hook up with the right music producer, film maker, or land that elusive major record deal.
Now after only 3 events, major media attention like Verizon Fios and Examiner.com (http://www.examiner.com) are lining up to cover the event that is now providing up to five different music acts performing live each event.
What is already a red hot event (artists are now waiting for spots as far out as December 2013), will be even hotter as The Big Apple Indie Music Series teams up with TalentArmy (http://www.TalentArmy.com) about to go live on line shortly. "That will just broaden the scope of how many talented music artists will submit their music to be considered for future events" says Co-Founder Brian Jaccoma. "We have over 200 acts per month currently vying for spots to perform in front of our 100+ executives, but as soon as TalentArmy (http://www.TalentArmy.com) launches we expect over 1,000 bands and artists per month to submit music for consideration, and even that number will grown quickly" say Founder Jon Landers
Each event includes an open bar and gourmet food by local award winning chefs At Your Service Caterers. They provide scrumptious food for the attendees that have grown from 40 at the first event, to four times that by only the third event.
What makes The Big Apple Indie Music Series stand out is the fact that after an artist gets to perform at these events for free, eat gourmet food and drink (21 and over) and then get a personal introduction to the top music and entertainment executives by Mr.Jaccoma and Mr. Landers, they become "family" with a permanent place on their website under the Past Event page along with the artists written review on their experience performing there.This permanent place on the website also includes links to each artists music website and social media sites so anyone checking out the history of who performed can go check out the artists music.
There are plans to take this event to the next level (Landers and Jaccoma have been asked to franchise the event in other major cities) by organizing a major concert series combining the best of the talent that has performed at their events. Word has it that there may be a concert in the works at Bethel Woods, home of the original Woodstock Concert series. In addition, another major national venue chain has approached the two to start a series of events in their venues as well (currently 6 locations and soon to be 8 franchise Nationwide). The two event Producer seems to have caught the eye of the music business.
Artists that perform at these events also get invited back to just attend any future events as a thank you for coming to perform there. April 11th is their next event with four and possibly five music artists coming to perform.
