Well, we're winding down to the end of the year and that means the TAXI Road Rally is gonna be the talk of the town all the way into January. Hope you had a chance to attend and take part in some great entertainment and networking—for FREE!!! Here's what we've got cookin' for this month:


4-7 National Association for Campus Activities (NACA)
Northeast Regional Conference
Marlborough, MA.

You'll be treated to over 50 performing acts and be able to network with more than 100 college marketplace agents at this regional conference. NACA is the leader in college activities. Go to www.naca.org for all of the hotel and travel details and for a schedule of events.
8-9 Billboard Backstage Pass Touring Conference
Roosevelt Hotel, New York City

While most of the traditional music industry seems to be faltering, the touring industry reported some $2.5 billion in concert receipts last year. That was up 25% from 2002. Promoters, agents, managers, artists, production crews as well as merchandisers and other touring-related businesses will be attending. Check into www.billboardevents.com for complete details. This one is a real winner.
10-13 Percussive Arts Society International Convention
Renaissance Nashville Hotel
Nashville, TN.

If you are into percussion at all, this is the mother of all conferences. Clinicians, new gear, exhibits, master classes, workshops, you name it. Some of the most talented drummers in the world have already signed on to appear at this four day event. Go to www.pasic.org for the rest of the info or contact PASIC at 580-353-1455.
13 National Association of Record Industry Professionals
Beverly Garland Holiday Inn
Studio City, CA.

The focus of this monthly NARIP meeting is simply, The Distribution Solution with topics covering what is distribution and how does it work, who needs it and when, how to get it and what does it cost, types of distribution and the always important getting paid.
