The Music Entrepreneur Club is hitting the road and may be coming to a city near you!​

What is it?


The MEC Tour is a series of pop-up music conferences with established professionals. Each conference consists of 6 hours of panels, discussions, and interactive workshops to learn and network with aspiring and established music entrepreneurs.

Why a "tour"?


Only a few cities are fortunate enough to have official music conferences, such as A3C or SXSW. If you don't live in one of these cities, then it's very expensive to attend. That is why we are bringing the conference to you! 

Who Is Involved?


The tour is being organized by MEC leadership, in partnership with LA Vocal Booths, A3C, and  Songtrust. Together we worked to recruit a diverse cross-section of artists, producers, and professionals so you can get a variety of perspectives on how to achieve success in this industry.

workshop Schedule

Workshop 1 - Marketing: How to start building some momentum for yourself


  • A group discussion led by marketing experts and MEC leadership to help you understand your brand and how to tell your story effectively.
  • During the session we'll be brainstorming marketing ideas for attendees in the room.
  • You'll leave with an actual plan for you to start releasing consistent content that will help build momentum.

Workshop 2 - What to do when you don't have money & where to invest when you do


  • A lot of artists and producers use not having money as an excuse as to why they aren't making any progress.
  • You will eventually need to invest in your career, but there are a lot of things you can be doing that don't cost anything.
  • We will talk about all of the things that you can do for free, as well as ways to start making money so you can start investing in yourself.

Workshop 3 - Building A Team: What should your team look like & how do you find them


  • Most artists and producers start out as a "team" of one.
  • However, as you take things to the next level you will need to build a team that can help you manage all the different aspects of your business.
  • Who do you need? Where should you find them? How do you compensate them? We'll be answering all of these questions and more.

who we are


DAMIEN RITTER

Damien is the founder of Black & Orange Management, and former President & Co-Founder of Funk Volume, a Los Angeles- based record label that had been cited as a leader among independent rap labels reaching $4M in sales in just the first 4 years. They earned consistent Top 10 chart placements on Billboard and iTunes and high profile write-ups in media outlets such as Forbes, Billboard, SPIN, LA Weekly, and more.

Prior to starting Funk Volume, he spent over 5 years in the consulting and financial services industries.


He earned his MBA from Stanford University, and B.S in Business Administration from UC Berkeley.

DJ Pain 1

Known for his production on Young Jeezy's platinum-selling album The Recession, producer Pacal "DJ Pain 1" Bayley stays busy. His journey started in the late 90's while cultivating hip-hop sensibilities through visual art, DJing, and beat-making. He balanced a career in youth service/teaching with creating music, often times marrying the two – he co-founded the first hip-hop performing arts program housed in an institute of higher education in his hometown.

Once he decided to focus on his production career, his resume quickly grew to include both legendary hip-hop acts (Public Enemy, MC Lyte) as well as contemporary hit-makers (Rae Sremmurd, 2 Chainz, 50 Cent). He has also garnered attention for his online video series on production and music business know-how.
