Underground Music Collective, the Nashville-based digital music resource center and multimedia services company, announced their latest event focused on the celebration of Jazz appreciation during the month of April.
Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) Roundtable, took place on Wednesday, April 19th at 6 p.m. CT. The panel consisted of industry leaders, music business executives, and professionals involved in the genre as they explore the celebration of its impact on American Music, the experiences of the Jazz musicians, and ways to explore the genre further.
“Each month this year, we’ve explored a new genre or experience in the music industry that has captured the extensive interest of emerging and indie artists seeking to learn more about the examples of successful careers in this industry,” says Underground Music Collective Founder & CEO, Gerard Longo. “Our goal is to continue exploring these stories and experiences through the digital lens, and truly redefine what it means to be Underground.”
JAM Roundtable will be moderated by Brandi Sims, CEO of Brandinc PR. Confirmed panelists will include the following:
