KPRS-FM Presents the First Hot 103 Jamz Music Conference

KPRS-FM, Kansas City's number one station for Hip Hop and R&B, will host their first-ever Hot 103 Jamz Music Conference on Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the VooDoo in Harrah's Casino, 1 Riverboat Drive, North Kansas City, MO.

The Hot 103 Jamz Music Conference provides a unique opportunity for artists, booking agents, concert promoters, producers, singers, songwriters and others involved in the music industry to network with high-level executives in the music profession.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for those who want to become involved in the music industry either in front of an audience or behind the scenes, but don’t know where to start on this journey,” said KPRS-FM Operations Manager, Myron D. Fears. “The conference was created with these individuals in mind as a means to educate, empower and equip them with the necessary knowledge to hopefully become successful,” said Fears.

The conference panelists will focus on a variety of industry pertinent information, including

• how to receive radio airplay • protecting your music • building your brand and creating a buzz, as well as • presenting your demo and why the first 20-30 seconds are most crucial as well as what executives look for in music talent and much more!

Choose between two cost packages to attend the conference. The cost of the “Standard Pass” per person for the music conference only is $50 plus a $3.74 service fee. The cost of the “VIP Pass” is $75 plus a $5.12 service fee. Individuals with a “VIP Pass” are entitled to participate in a one-on-one demo critique session with an industry professional. All demos can be a maximum of 90 seconds in length and must be in either a CD or MP3 player format.
