“Technology for Musicians and Songwriters” to be spotlighted at Thursday Indie Connect luncheon


by Dave Carew

How can cool new technologies help musicians and songwriters? What incredible new features and benefits do these gadgets and gizmos offer?

You’ll get the specific (sometimes jaw-dropping) answers at this month’s Nashville Music Industry Luncheon, sponsored by Indie Connect.

The luncheon will feature representatives from several companies showcasing their music-related technologies, including reps from:

* Bombplates . . . a template-based website service;

* Shure . . . showcasing the GLXD wireless system and more;

* Artist Growth . . . a smart-phone app for managing your band’s business;

* Others.

Asked by Underground Nashville why he believes attendees will greatly benefit from this month’s luncheon, Vinny Ribas, CEO of Indie Connect, said, “Many musicians and songwriters don’t keep up on new technology. Others just don’t realize how technologies on the market can make their jobs and lives easier, and even generate additional income for them. The goal of this luncheon is to demonstrate some of those technologies and explain the benefits.”

Here are your specs for the luncheon:

WHEN: Thursday, April 24, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

WHERE: SOUTH (bar and restaurant), 1524 Demonbreun Street, Nashville

PRICE: $25 at the door or online, which buys you lunch and a beverage. (Registration link below.)


The Nashville Music Industry Luncheon is a monthly opportunity for people from all corners of the music industry to network, master-mind, and be educated by industry leaders. The event is held the last Thursday of each month from 11:30 – 1:00 PM at SOUTH.

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.”
