Who Knew. . .Presents An Evening with Music Supervisors

Thursday, November 1 from 6:30-9:00 PM

Doors open at 5:00 PM

Well it’s that time of year again…where WHO KNEW delivers it’s super popular “Evening With Music Supervisors”. This event packs the house every year and provides the audience with not only amazing live music, but also delivers tons of knowledge about how music is selected for use in TV, movies, trailers, video games and branded advertising.

If you are a songwriter, artist, publisher, label executive, or simply want to learn about the synchronization process, you can’t miss this event. It’s like “Shark Tank” with a panel of 5 A-list music supervisors in the role of the sharks; the entrepreneurs are 8 emerging musical artists. The format is simple- each artist performs a single song and gets to engage directly with the music supervisors and learn about what they liked about the song and how it may work for their projects.

The film, television and advertising music supervisors represent such notable outlets as Hollywood blockbuster films, Netflix Originals, hit TV shows, massive global brands, major international franchises, TV launch campaigns and promos, and much more.

So don’t miss this incredible night where you will learn all about how the “sync” process works and how music lands in key productions. And don’t forget about 8 amazing musical performances too!
