Musicians and performing artists know they have to think like small business owners. Where do you find business support when music is your business? Local, regional, and federal resources for small businesses abound, but few are targeted specifically to the needs of creatives in the arts and entertainment fields. I asked Jocelyn Celaya about her work filling that gap.
Does anyone ever get to see everything they want to at APAP? There’s an overwhelming number of showcases scattered throughout Manhattan and the boroughs featuring artists that are famous, unknown, and everything in between. Ron Kadish and Ben Michaels, APAP veterans, managed to catch a few of this year’s global music shows despite their busy schedules as rock paper scissors publicists. I asked them for a rundown of the APAP experiences that were their personal favorites of 2019.
