There are two new hotels opening up soon. The owners are looking for mid-to-up-tempo music by new emerging artists to be played during the day (no profanity) – reggae, house/edm, r&b, jazz, hip hop, electronic music is all good. If you or someone you know would be interested in having their music played in a hotel. Have them send their best 3 songs to me, along with name & phone number.
