Imagine a room full of Wisconsin Talent Buyers** and you have just 3 minutes to tell them why they should book you or your band at their next event. WAMI will give area musicians that chance at the 3rd Annual “WAMI Fast Pitch“ on Sunday, November 13, 2011 starting at 12:00 PM at Club Garibaldi, 2501 South Superior Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Representatives from area festivals and clubs** will be looking for talent at WAMI Fast Pitch to book for their 2012 events.
This will be a great opportunity for you/your band to be creative, leave an impression and get your press kits directly into the hands of Wisconsin Talent Buyers. Each Artist/Band will only be allowed 3 minutes with each Talent Buyer, so it will be extremely important for you to really nail your pitch (for pitch help see 15secondpitch.com). For efficiency, a maximum of two representatives per Artist/Band will be allowed. This is a unique opportunity for Talent Buyers and Artists to meet in-person, so please, no electronic audio or video presentations. That’s what websites, email and EPK’s are for.
