The Grascals set to perform National Anthem
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Newest to the list of promotions the Sounds offer at Greer Stadium is Music Industry Wednesdays (MIW). During the 2012 season the Nashville Sounds will host five MIW nights geared towards the industry that gives Nashville its most well known nickname, “Music City.”
“I worked with Kevin to develop a specialized night for the wonderful music community,” said Chris Alderman, Manager Turner & Nichols. “It is an opportunity for labels, agents, and managers to showcase new acts along with a night to enjoy one of America’s favorite pastimes.”
Anyone that works in the music industry can purchase Buy-One-Get-One-Free Reserved Seat Tickets every Wednesday night by simply going to the box office with proof you work in the industry. “Bring your lam, business card, CD, or literally anything that proves you work in the business and we will take care of you,” said Kevin Samborski the Account Executive in charge of the event. “We wanted to put something special together so everyone in the industry from touring crew to the business side of things could kick back with family and friends to enjoy a ballgame at a great price.”
Those participating in the MIW promotion will also enjoy an exclusive Happy Hour of $2 12oz Domestic Drafts by the Sounds Stage from 6:05pm-7:05pm.
The first MIW, on Wednesday June 20th, is set to kick off with a Happy Hour performance on the Sounds Stage by Alyssa Jacey. @AlyssaJacey spent 20 years in the professional dance industry until she transitioned to singer/songwriter almost overnight following a joke karaoke performance in 2004. Over the next eight years she self-taught both guitar and drums, churned out 6 albums, 4 national tours, performed over 500 shows, and created over 250 original songs. And she did all of this by herself. “Bring the crew and wear your BLUE” to her Wednesday June 20th MIW performance and see www.AlyssaJacey.com to learn more!
All fans in attendance will be treated to an amazing National Anthem performance by The Grascals. @TheGrascals are among the most beloved and acclaimed bands on today’s bluegrass scene, having won SPBGMA’s Bluegrass Band of the Year award in 2010, the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Emerging Artist of the Year award in 2005 and earning its Entertainer of the Year honor in both 2006 and 2007.
MIW is set to include 5 dates in 2012: June 20, July 18, July 25, August 15, and August 30. Happy Hour and pre-game performances will begin at 6:05pm, first pitch at 7:05pm.
“Hopefully from here the music industry continues to become even more involved with crews having bus calls at our Thursday night games, artists holding their record release or #1 parties here, and labels bringing out new acts to get their feet wet,” said Kevin Samborski. “With the Sounds being an important part of the entertainment industry in Nashville for the past 35 years, and simply looking at our name and logo, it makes perfect sense that we form a bond with the music world.”
