This panel—Trying to Get Your Band Noticed?—will discuss how to navigate the local press, radio, and blog scene. Featuring five experienced panelists from different avenues of the entertainment industry: Luke O'Neil, Angie "C" Shaw, Michael Marotta, Sarah Rodman, and Anngelle Wood.

Trying to Get Your Band Noticed? 

These panelists will examine the best way to generate attention for your band and give you pointers as to what gets their attention or peaks their curiosity to check out a band or artist. You can say all you want about yourself, but when someone else says it, that shows that they're paying attention to your band and others will take notice. Your fan base will grow! Come listen to the experts, ask your "pressing" questions, and take away some valuable tools of the trade. Bring your lunch.
