$10 - $15

When a city’s music scene rocks, so do its businesses.

>> RESERVE YOUR SPOT HERE <<

Music Break, in it’s 5th annual event, connects the local music community to business leaders and opportunities for growth while showcasing the very talented and successful artists that got their start in the region. And for the first time in Music Break’s history, we will partner with Charleston’s New Music Confab to kick off their weekend and expand the spirit of connecting musicians to opportunities across the state of South Carolina.

Music Break is a one-of-kind event centered around our region’s music industry, and since we rock, there’s a lot to cover…

5:30 – 6:30pm

Tin Roof welcomes us for a musician’s workshop where local talent can hear success stories, tips and advice from locals who’ve made it in the music biz. Our expert panelists include:  

  1. Dave Stewart – Founder, New Music Confab
  2. Rick Booth – President, Intrepid Artist
  3. Rob Lamble – President, Ear for Music
  4. Krystal Miller – President, The Christopher Conner Foundation
  5. Don Russo – Owner/Founder, Freeway Music

6:45 – 7:45pm 

We’ll move on over to the Music Farm for our Local Showcase where three local bands/artists, chosen by the COR member base through an application process, will each have 15 minutes to play in front of a VIP crowd consisting of community leaders, local event planners and Midlands based venue owners that can potentially hire them for an upcoming gig.
