The Blue Light Sessions in-studio concert series is host to some of the best regional talent and was designed to provide a way for artists to record a live acoustic "unplugged" concert CD and DVD. The sessions are set in the stylish live room of Blue Light Digital Sound recording studio located in the heart of downtown Mt. Holly, NJ.

The artists 45-60 minute set is recorded live into Pro Tools and filmed with 2 HD cameras in front of an intimate audience of 25 fans. After the performance, the audio is mixed and mastered then duplicated onto custom printed CDs. Each performer receives 25 DVD's and 25 copies of the CD, one for each of the audience members. The artist will also select 3 of their favorite songs from the DVD to be uploaded to Blue Light Sessions You Tube channel and for use on their website.

Artists can apply online at Sonicbids to be considered for the concert series. There are 4 slots reserved for Sonicbids members each month. Selected artists are required to make a $50 deposit, which is refunded once the band has sold 25 tickets to the session. If artists do not sell all 25 tickets, they will be required to recoup the difference of unsold tickets (average ticket price $25). Ticket sales cover the costs of recording, filming, mixing and duplicating. Blue Light provides either physical tickets, or digital tickets via a linkable website for use in social media. This is a great opportunity for artists to record a live album and concert DVD in an intimate atmosphere.
