MFM endosrses and supports the Hudson ​Valley ​Music ​Summit as a way to reach out to Hudson Valley professional musicians.

“When ​you ​register ​for ​the ​Hudson ​Valley ​Music ​Summit, ​you ​join ​a ​group ​of ​ambitious, ​talented ​and ​innovative ​music ​industry ​professionals ​who ​plan ​to ​enjoy ​a ​full ​day ​of ​network ​building, ​panel ​discussions, ​and ​music ​showcases. ​

Find ​yourself ​among ​100+ ​musicians, ​managers, ​A&R ​reps, ​booking ​agents, ​promoters, ​producers, ​publicists, ​and ​artists ​who ​will ​help ​you ​build ​the ​career ​of ​your ​dreams ​with ​a ​robust ​team ​and ​clear ​vision.

The music business is constantly innovating. The infrastructure musicians use to reach their audience evolves at the speed of the internet. Crowdfunded projects. Social media outreach. Digital distribution. Streaming. Decentralized record label services. Intellectual property laws and collections. Music production. All these things are constantly evolving. Often this whirl of technological, business, operational and legal activity stands in stark contrast to what this is all about: Creating an unbothered oasis for musicians to produce their art, and a seamless conduit to share it with our audience.

We want to maintain this environment so music business professionals can remain players in this business of music no matter how much it changes. So that change becomes a new source of opportunities for innovative music industry professionals to add to the value chain. We want to master the background pandemonium so that our music clients can create, and their audience can enjoy.

The Hudson Valley has a rich tradition of musical expression. From the inspiration of the Catskill Mountains to the fast paced business and technological innovations in New York City, the Hudson Valley has something to offer musicians at every level. The Hudson Valley Music Summit brings together music business professionals who work behind the scenes from throughout the Northeast to help working musicians get their music out to fans across the region and around the world.

Allow ​yourself ​to ​join ​us. ​Register ​now ​and ​plan ​the ​weekend ​you ​envision because you can only imagine what you’ll miss if you don’t!

Stay Tuned to the Future of Music!” – David Hoffman (Founder)
