Music Manager Summit Heats Up; Send me Your Questions

Things are heating up with the Music Manager Summit. This is a very rare opportunity to meet and listen to some of the most influential, interesting and successful managers in the business toady. Also, an assortment of industry reps, like the Entertainment Commission's Jocelyn Kane, BMI's Tony George, West Coast Songwriter head Ian Crombie, Merle Saunders from NARAS and even some Guitar Player Magazinites, will also be on hand to meet, greet and mingle. And, send me the questions you want me to ask these managers and I'll incorporate them into my interviews. I will interview Jordan Kurland, Robert Hayes and Carter individually, then bring them together at the end for audience questions. Count on a full evening...

  • Award Winning Films & Film Panel All-Stars Announced
  • Concurrent to the Managers Summit, Bruce Haring will present a panel on "DIY Film Marketing and Promotion," a discussion on the steps you need to take before and after your film is completed. Scheduled to appear are Brian Ging, director of "American Yearbook"; James Delassandro, author of "1906" and director of "The Damndest Finest Ruins," the story of the Great San Francisco Earthquake; Joel S. Bachar, a curator, promoter, exhibitor, distributor and founder of Blackchair Productions and Microcinema International; and Nick Tucker, director of the mockumentary "Fandom," winner of the 2004 DIY Film Festival.

    Following the panel, we will screen a selection from the DIY Film Festival, including The Ramen Days," a study of the San Francisco punk scene; "My First War," a documentary of last year's San Francisco anti-war activity; "Pol Pot's Birthday," a hilarious short on the dictator's special day celebration; "The Damndest Finest Ruins," a film adaptation of James D'Alessandro's best-selling "1906" study of the San Francisco earthquake; "Bird On," winner of the 2004 DIY Film Festival award for best animation; and "Save Jesus" a wacky battle between the Devil and Mr. J.

    Excellent Book Review in International Musician

    The following review appeared in International Musician, a monthly music magazine out of New York City.

    A veteran of the professional music business with a grand total of 14 gold and platinum records earned by her various clients, Nadine Condon knows what makes or breaks a successful musical career. In her Hot Hits, Cheap Demos: The Real World Guide to Music Business Success, she relates the wisdom of her experience to the aspiring musician in a down-to-earth style.

    Condon speaks to every level of musician, from beginners to established artists, without favoring any particular genre. Her tips include helpful information on issues ranging from finding a manager, agent or lawyer, to how to package CDs, produce a noteworthy Web site and promote and upcoming show.
