Nomad Entertainment announces the upcoming 2005 New York Music Seminar

Nomad Entertainment has announced this week that it will bring to
Manhattan what promises to be one of the largest and diverse Music Industry
Seminars to hit the city in almost a decade. Seminar lecture classes will be
lead by such industry giants as LA Reid (Co-Founder LaFace Records, President
of Arista, Def Jam.), Bridget Lindsey of Sanctuary Artist Management (The
management company that represents artist such as: Beyonce, Destinys
Child, Iron Maiden, Tommy Lee, Janes Addiction), Wallace Collins ( whos
client list includes: Moby, Creed, Ozzy Osbourne, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Eddy
Grant, Ani DiFranco), and Kayo Roberson (who has worked with: Usher, Babyface,
Whitney Houston, TLC, Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Sheena Easton, The
Deele, and Bobby Brown)...and these are just the names of a few of the
industry leaders who will be heading seminar lecture classes.

The 2005 New York Music Seminar will be a two day event which will take
place in August at Manhattans Penn Plaza Pavilion, and will feature
not only the seminar lecture classes and opportunities to network with
industry royalty, but it will also be host to up to 120 music industry themed
vendors ( ranging anywhere from Music services to artist promotion and more).

The idea is to give anyone interested in the music industry as a
career, a chance to rub elbows with people they would probably never get a chance
to meet in the real world, as well as give those independent labels and
artists an opportunity to promote, sell and market themselves and show what
they have to offer, said Maurice Woodson, CEO of Nomad Entertainment.

According to Woodson, one of the true high points of the seminar will
be the talent competition whereas the prizes will consist of Record Deals,
Development Deals, Production Deals, Management Contracts and Cash.
Those interested in becoming a part of the competition must first submit a
demo tape, bio, and talent category card which will be screened by a group
of judges who will narrow it down to about 150-300 artists or groups.
This group of contestants will then be narrowed down to around 50 (with 5
alternatives) after they perform live before the judges. That 50 will
then perform at the evening of the first day of the seminar, where
thereafter they will be narrowed down to the 20 who will perform the second night
of the seminar. It is at that final offering that the winners will be
chosen and prizes will be received.

There will be celebrity performances prior to the competition each
night, but the names of the celebrities as well as the guest judges will
remain a secret for now according to Nomad Entertainment. More than 100
celebrities have also been invited to walk through.
