Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there regularly, it 
is very tasty and modestly priced.

BOSTON, MA – The first annual Boston Music Conference (BMC) will be held this 
September 26 and 27, and is the first major initiative in a series of events 
that will promote Boston within the music industry and offer the city’s 
aspiring talent a chance to meet some of the industry’s top executives and 
celebrities.  This year’s conference will include workshops, various 
networking and educational opportunities and exclusive music industry events.  
The mission of the Boston Music Conference is to educate and empower the 
region’s youth and provide them with the information and tools necessary to 
pursue a career in music.  One of the topics to be discussed in the conference 
this year is Latin music, an emerging genre that is crossing over into 

Boston has long been known as a source of major talent and is home to arguably 
the top educational institution for music.  However, due to a lack of 
resources and opportunities within the city for students who are unable to 
attend college, many aspiring artists are forced to leave Boston to pursue 
their dreams in other cities.  With the Boston Music Conference, more options 
will be available to the city’s youth in Boston.   

The Boston Music Conference is sponsored and supported by many organizations 
within the city as well as nationally, including Berklee College of Music, 
MySpace, BMI, MTV3 and all of the major labels including but not limited to 
Sony BMG, Interscope Records, Mo Town, Def Jam and Universal.  In conjunction 
with ROCA, a non profit organization, (www.rocainc.org) the BMC will be 
offering 25 scholarships to attend to youths who demonstrate a serious 
interest in pursuing a career in music but would not be able to attend.  

In order to attend the Boston Music Conference, registration online at 
www.bostonmusicconference.com is required along with a registration fee of $99 
for a limited time.  Prices will increase closer to the time of the event and 
capacity is limited.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their bio and 
promotional kit to the event as this is a rare opportunity to meet top music 
industry executives.  Aspiring artists who would like their music to be 
considered for a commemorative CD to be distributed at the event can send a 
sample of their work to info@bostonmusicconference.com.  Workshops for the 
event will be held Friday September 26, from 12 to 5 followed by Showcase 
Performances at Mojitos at 48 Winter Street in Downtown Crossing.  The 
conference will be held at the Roxy Tremont Ballroom at 272 Tremont Street in 
the Theatre District, Saturday September 27 from 12 to 6.  

The goal of the Boston Music Conference (BMC) is to educate and empower the 
city’s aspiring talent who are interested in pursuing a career in music by 
bringing the resources and information to them in Boston.  The BMC is the 
first part of an organized long term initiative to bring national attention to 
Boston as a source of major talent within the music industry and develop local
