Musicians get critiqued by industry executives | Arts & Culture
Local musicians can have their music critiqued, published and placed Thursday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Globe University, Broadjam and the Madison Area Music Association will host The Pitch Sessions at Regent Street Retreat, located at 1206 Regent St.
Top music industry executives will be at the event including Roy Elkins, founder and CEO of Broadjam, Inc.; Randy Hawke, radio program director of WJJO; Billy Geoghegan, consultant and manager of Brown Paper Tickets; and Sandman, of Sandman Productions.
Globe University Music Business Program chair Jim Brandmeier will moderate the event.
Musicians hoping to have their music critiqued must sign in and submit their CD at the door between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., said a press release.
"One of the biggest problems for artists and performers on their way up is lack of professional feedback," said Broadjam production manager Mike Huberty. "You can send a thousand press kits and emails, but it's easy to get lost in the shuffle." Huberty said that Broadjam can provide that interaction with music industry professionals.
