SPRING REVERB: PANELS

Bands, musicians, music fans....there's lots to learn in just a short amount of time.  By popular demand, we have three "marquee panels" (meaning, you wanted this content, you get it!).  All panels are free, but preregistration is required and there are limited spots!

Sat June 4, 2022
Marquee Panel #1
GET BOOKED! How to get a booking agent in Canada

The Mansion, 506 Princess St.
2:30pm doors, 3:00pm start, Free, Preregister HERE
Presented by: Amherst Island Radio

Anyone who’s played in a band and been blessed with the role of “booker” knows it’s a ton of work. Who are the good promoters and clubs to work with? Who puts on shows in Newfoundland and British Columbia and everywhere in between? How do you convince people to book your band and actually pay you? Booking is a full-time job and getting an agent is one of the biggest breaks a band can get.

The Feldman Agency is one of North America's premiere entertainment talent agencies, representing a massive list of artists like Rush, Our Lady Peace and Diana Krall. Oh, and FYI, they’re not afraid to sign Kingston talent as they also represent The Glorious Sons, The Tragically Hip, Kasador, David Usher, Bryan Adams (kinda Kingston), and Avril Lavigne (also, kinda Kingston, but really Napanee). Feldman artist agent, Jordan Powley, grew up down the 401 in Cobourg, Ontario and now books some of the biggest bands across the world. Bring your questions and enthusiasm to this moderated talk on how to get a booking agent.

Marquee Panel #2
GET SEEN! In-conversation with Eric Alper

The Mansion, 506 Princess St.
12:30pm doors, 1:00pm start, Free, Preregister HERE
Presented by: Kingston Live

Is your band awesome but you’re frustrated that people aren’t paying attention? Welcome to the club! With so many amazing artists all vying for an audience (with increasingly shorter attention spans) it can be a struggle to stand out. Come meet, chat, and learn from Eric Alper - Canada’s music PR heavyweight!

For the past 25+ years, Eric Alper has been at the forefront of the Canadian entertainment industry – making the Public in Public Relations his business. His enthusiasm, encyclopedic knowledge of the past and present have made him the go-to for music in Canada. He is also host of one of the top-rated SiriusXM shows “ThatEricAlper”. With over one million followers, friends and connections across his social media platforms, it’s clear to understand why he has been named a “must follow” by Billboard, Paste and National Post among others. He has been a 6-time nominee for Publicist of the Year during Canadian Music Week, and has represented artists that have over 135 JUNO Award nominated-albums (and 10 in 2022), including 19 JUNO Award, 35 Canadian Folk Music Award, and 60 Maple Blues Award-winning albums, and is also truly honoured to work with some of the biggest and most important artists of our time like Ringo Starr, Ray Charles, The Smashing Pumpkins, Ani DiFranco, Duran Duran, and Slash.
