Yes, things that we would never expected are finally falling into place!
First, the City of Atlanta seems to be really behind the Hall! Hopefully one of their representatives are going to be at our Southern Music Association meeting October 24th.
We have made contact with Lisa Love, former Executive Director of the now closed Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Lisa now is with the Georgia Governor’s Office of Film & Music and edits the Georgia Music magazine. Lisa supports the Hall!
Atlanta music promoter Dante Gold and son of another world famous music promoter, Gorgeous George, has come on board! He will be at next meeting and hopefully even his Dad.
Herb Cox, a music DooWop legend is on board too! He was the guiding light of the very successful PBS specials on DooWop.
Eddie Ray, the first African American VP of Capitol Records and current Executive Director of the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame is on board! The guiding light of the famous annual tribute to Dirty Dancing at Lake Lure, NC is coming to next meeting and wants to play a major role in Hall development and marketing.
Speaking of marketing, another former Coke USA executive Ron Coleman is on board. Ron is also a Silver Buffalo, which is the highest honor you can receive as a Boy Scout. His class of Buffaloes included Bill Gates!
And the list of supporters grows every day!
