Music Gorilla Showcase for Columbia Records 7.31.14

August 14th, 2014 by

On the last day in July, Music Gorilla had one of our Major Label Showcases at the epic and historic NYC venue The Bitter End ( There were 5 bands playing for an A&R rep from Columbia Records, and they networked and received feedback on their 45 minute performances.

Here are some shots of the event, starting with the line up:

We’re always grateful to the fantastic staff at The Bitter End, including the amazing sound engineer, Adrian. They are always supportive of indie artists and bands and we love having our events there. Thank you guys – you are absolutely deserving of your own day!
