Mentor Lunch Tickets for the TAXI Road Rally — SOLD OUT!
is the Mentor Lunch?
We were trying to find info about the Mentor Lunch we did
at last year’s Road Rally and we found this blog on
Songwriter’s Tip Jar. We think it gives a good overview:
The Mentor Lunch is a sit down
lunch where each table of 10 Road Rally attendees gets to
dine with an industry pro — actually, several
of them because we rotate them around the tables. You should
be able to meet 5 or 6 mentors with a range of different industry
backgrounds during the course of your lunch.
Not only do you get to meet Producers,
Publishers, Music Library Owners, Music Marketing Experts,
Recording Engineers, Songwriting Experts, Instrumental Composers,
Music Supervisors, and A&R people, we also encourage them
to accept CDs from you (although it’s impossible for
us to guarantee they will listen).
We offer a $300 bonus to the industry
person who finds the best song, so they are inspired to listen
to every song or track they get! They do not offer critiques,
but there have been cases in which the members have been contacted
by an industry pro following the luncheon.
But there’s another aspect
of the Mentor Lunch that I always seem to forget to mention — meeting
other songwriters, artists, and composers! So many of THOSE
relationships have resulted in collaborations that, in turn,
became deals and placements, that we’ll never fully
know the extent to which they have paid off.
