Organized by Jay King on behalf of the California Black Chamber and KDEE King said:
“I am from this community (Del Paso Heights), started my career here 30 years ago (King rewrote music business history when he manufactured, distributed, marketed & promoted the Multi-Million selling #1 R&B and Top Ten Pop hit ‘Rumors’ by the Timex Social Club on his Indi label Jay Records in 1986) and I know what kind of talent, infrastructure and support that exists here, it’s just a matter of time before record companies and Indi labels will be converging on Sacramento as a testing ground before they decide to spend money nationally on their artists because we have a perfect storm between radio (KDEE), retail (Dimple Record stores) and venues to test whether a record has legs nationally or not.”
The idea of the summit is to better educate our local artists, songwriters, producers, radio, retail, media and venues. We want to build real synergy and networking opportunities between all of these entities while at the same time connecting local artists to the music industry at large by inviting music professionals like Rhonda Bedikian (music supervisor, publishing expert and administrator), Larry Dunn (keyboardist, producer, songwriter, arranger, entrepreneur) an original member of Earth Wind & Fire who’s also a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame and Grammys Hall of Fame, Reggie Calloway (singer, songwriter, producer) creator of R&B/Pop Band “Midnight Star” and a host of other guests including local talents like Derek D.O.A. Allen (Producer, Songwriter, Bassist) who has performed with and/or produced Karyn White, Janet Jackson and Lionel Ritchie among others and Ken Hall (manager of local hit artist Rashaad “If you Leave”) to share their experiences, knowledge, stories and information. Also added to the panelists is Dr. Logan H. Westbrooks, author of the new book The Anatomy of the Music Industry. Westbrooks will share his expertise as a marketer, visionary and businessman who was one of the music industry’s first black executives. His new book contains guidance from over 30 industry professionals, of which Jay King is one of them.
