TBAIMS LLC bringing a new monthly music showcase and networking event to the Tampa Bay Area called the Tampa Bay Artist Indie Music Series, maintaining the TBAIMS brand which originally started as The Big Apple Indie Music Series in New York City in January of 2013.
Each month, TBAIMS will host a music showcase at a different venue in Tampa Bay and invite up to 6 independent music artists of various genres to perform a live 20 minute set or 4 songs each. They will also invite music, entertainment, TV and film industry executives including A&R/s to connect with these artists.
Working with ReverbNation, TBAIMS receives from 2400 to over 4800 submissions from artists across North America that would like to perform for their showcases knowing it could connect them with industry professionals that could help their music careers.
The process of which these artists are reviewed are based on seeing video footage of live performances so they can see the artist’s stage presence, how well they engage their audience, ability to sing on key without the use of auto-tune, how well they promote on social media and content of lyrical material. They don’t accept any lyrical material with profanity, that defames women or promotes violence.
In addition, they are building collaborative relations with music festivals across North America and eventually on a global basis to help their growing family of artists opportunities to perform outside their local areas. They are also collaborating with some of the best artist development agencies in LA, Nashville, New York ad Florida to help those artists that don’t pass their vetting process to help them get to the next level of their music careers.
They have set their first music showcase for Wednesday, May 11th at the Doubletree Hotel on W. Cypress Street in Tampa from 8-11 pm. Advance tickets are $10 and $20 at the door.
