Welcome to the AMG National Record Label Showcase!! Play your songs live for Columbia Records, Koch Records and Island Records!! The showcase is sponsored by AlphaMusicGroup and open to artists in all non-urban genres.

The AMG National Record Label showcase is an amazing opportunity to play 3-4 of your best songs directly for A & R Representatives in a live New York city venue. Each artist or band will also have time to speak directly to the A & R Reps after their performance.

The AMG National Record Label Showcase announces the following record labels who will be participating in this year's event:

  • Dave Wilkes, V.P. of A & R, Koch Records

  • Eric Speck, Manager of A & R , Island Records

  • Nick Casinelli, Director of A&R, SonyBMG
  • Devra Wright, A & R Representative, Columbia Records

The logistics:

Date: Tuesday, July 25th

Time: 7:00 PM Sharp

Location: Don Hills in New York City (

Our showcase setting is small and intimate!! Forget those super large venues where you don't know if anyone in the industry heard your music. At our showcase, you will be personally introduced to the A & R Representatives. Submissions for this opportunity are exclusively through Sonicbids. Six (6) lucky artists or bands will be chosen to perform for the labels listed above.

Upon acceptance, selected artists and bands will be required to pay $250.00 performance fee...but wait to see what you will receive! It's much more than just the showcase....

1. AMG covers all costs of renting the venue, promoting the event, and contracting the A & R so that you can be positive that the record labels will be in attendance.

2. You will receive as many free tickets to sell as you want. Tickets are $10.00 each! We have had bands in the past that have sold close to 100 tickets and have made excellent money. If you can't sell 25 may not be ready for a showcase of this level. We are looking for bands with a fan base! Again, you can sell as many tickets as you want. There is no limit to how much money you can make. The door is yours to anyone you bring in.

3. Your fee also includes all advertising for the event. This event will be advertised electronically to 1,950 A&R reps in the country and 199 A&R Reps in NYC alone. Your promotional materials will include your photo, bio and an instant radio stream that will go out to music industry professionals in the form of an electronic invitation to every recipient of the list. ThatÂ’s right, you will be marketed to every major record label. The marketing will offer all record label executives free VIP passes, beverages and food provided by AMG.

Once again, thank you for your interest in the AMG National Record Label Showcase! We look forward to showcasing the best talent!
