Your private Nashville showcase with industry representatives includes private screening and showcase in front of industry representatives, followed by a luncheon and plenty of time to speak with record labels, producers, promoters, and management. "Showcase in a bar? Industry doesn't show up! Private showcase? Industry is there!"

Showcasing in Nashville can be approached several ways, from do-it-yourself writer nights and open mic nights, to staged productions with promotion and industry invitations. What you choose depends on your goals and your budget. It can be very expensive to attract the attention of key people in major entertainment centers like Nashville, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.

The average cost of a Nashville showcase you do yourself, with proper promotion and leg work, is $8,000 to $13,000. It will take 7 - 10 days in Nashville.

To garner industry attention, you need (a) the right people to know you exist and (b) you need them to come see you play. An excellent alternative to do-it-yourself showcases which will save you thousands of dollars, is to attend a sponsored event which draws industry personnel and offers career support. You won't have to worry about location, staging, sound, or event promotion.
