Nomad Entertainment announces the upcoming 2005 New York Music Seminar.

Response was so huge that Seminar had to be moved to Madison Square Garden

July 2005
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 Jenine Mclain (Alicia Keys Manager), 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 Keynote Speaker is one that will blow the crowd away, said representatives of Nomad Entertainment. We will be releasing that name closer the seminar date.

The 2005 New York Music Seminar will be a two day event which will take place on September 10th -11th at Manhattans Madison Square Garden, 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 55 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). 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.
