New Music Showcase is a one-hour video music program produced to promote different genres of music and a variety of musicians. Our first season of episodes was taped at the Comcast studio in Springfield, MA. Currently we are gearing up for Season Two and are seeking the best acts from all genres of music to appear on the show. The new season will air from September 2006 to May of 2007.

Each episode is one-hour in length which includes a 45 to 50-minute set from one musical act, and a ten minute interview. All sets will be taped at the studio and every artist or band that performs on the show will receive a free copy of the show on DVD, along with an audio CD. All artists will also be featured in the photo-gallery on our homepage and have their bio displayed with a link to their website.

Walter Gonet, Creator and Executive Producer of the New Music Showcase and Owner of WG Records, has been in the music industry since the 1970’s and is very passionate about promoting and developing young and up-and-coming talent. Walter and his staff have worked very hard to create the best opportunity for your band; promoting and growing the show so that is now distributed through various Public Access Channels in over 66 cities throughout 7 states. This is an invaluable chance to gain a lot of exposure for your act.

2. Be punctual. The crew volunteer their time to record your performance.

3. Plan a set of 45 to 50 minutes of music.

9. During the interviews please, do not play or touch your instruments. The microphones that pick up the room conversation are very sensitive.

11. If you bring equipment (microphones, monitors, etc.) that is to be connected to the studio equipment, you must supply the cable (this helps eliminate the confusion, during breakdown, of who owns what cables).

12. The instruments are recorded through a mixer but not put through the room PA. The vocals will be put into the room. You will need monitors.

13. You are welcome to bring guests. The number of guests depends on the studio that we will be using. You will be notified of the number at a later date.
