Indie Connect’s Music Industry Luncheon moves to SOUTH


By Dave Carew

For my money, the single most valuable music-related networking opportunity in Nashville is the monthly Music Industry Luncheon sponsored by Indie Connect. For the past year or so, these luncheons have been held at Belcourt Taps. But that’s about to change.

Still to be held on the final Thursday of every month (except in November and December), the event will be held this month and hereafter in the back room at SOUTH (bar and restaurant), located at 5124 Demonbreun Street.

According to Vinny Ribas, CEO of Indie Connect, the move was made for two principal reasons. Mr. Ribas said that he had been looking for a larger venue to accommodate the growing attendance at the monthly meetings, and he likes that SOUTH is so close to Music Row, making mid-day attendance even easier for people who work on or near the Row.

The guest speaker at the Thursday, March 27 luncheon (to be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) will be Greg Seneff Sr. Esq., addressing the topic “Legal Issues Most Artists and Songwriters Don’t Know About.”  Mr. Seneff, a solo-practitioner, served as Director of Legal Affairs at Benson Music Group, and as the Director of Business Affairs at EMI Christian Music Group.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
