Formed in August of 2010 and operating as a corporation as of September 1, 2012, ID VIP Team is an organization dedicated to supporting unsigned artists and building a better future for artists in the music industry. Our Regional Offices in:
- Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
- Calgary, Alberta, Canada
- Charlotte, NC, USA
- Atlanta, GA, USA
- Albany, NY, USA
…are partnerships between our Equity Partners and ID VIP Team Corporation.
ID VIP Team’s mandate is to make the magic of original music available and affordable for the masses while supporting unsigned musicians in their own individual career paths. Through our regional offices in Canada & the US, we are creating gainful employment for unsigned musicians in the music industry.
We specialize in providing comprehensive event services including entertainment, sound, light and support services. In Canada, our not-for-profit “Sun, Snow & Our Show Concert Series” highlights the talents of undiscovered artists at high profile venues such as community events, trade shows, concerts, and festivals. We target a “Tween, Teen and Twenty’s” audience while still maintaining an ALL AGES FAMILY FRIENDLY format. We work closely with our partner venues, which include municipalities, not-for profit organizations and charities to create, brand and build annual events that allow us, as partners, to share in the work and profits of these events.
In the US, our Regional Office in Charlotte, NC will be operating their not-for-profit under the “MidAtlantic Music Conference” banner. ID VIP Team Corp acts as the exclusive agent for the the conference trade show held in Charlotte, NC. The MidAtlantic Music Conference & Trade Show is held annually on the first weekend in October and has been occurring since 2002. This annual event is the largest & longest running music conference and festival in the region.
Every Regional Office also provides comprehensive entertainment and music services for weddings, private, corporate, charity and municipal events. We have also joined forces with our regional radio stations to power The Mobile Mix. This program combines ID VIP Team’s DJ and Concert Services with radio DJ Celebrities to give you the most amazing private and public events available.
ID VIP Team is dedicated to supporting education in music through free mentor programs for emerging music students, fund raiser programs, charity concerts, and support “The Clean Scene”. Our music scholarship, the Joey Welshman – Nokturnal/Ill.escape Scholarship (Edmonton, Alberta regional office) and the Calgary Remembers – Life is Beautiful Scholarship (Calgary, Alberta regional office), provides a $1,000 scholarship to an unsigned musician pursuing a post-secondary education in music.
We are proud to offer many free support services to unsigned musicians including mentor programs, tax preparation assistance program, internship opportunities, branding & marketing workshops, and many more programs being launched each year. Our “family approach” with our musicians includes getting together every year to spend the second weekend in September at our own campground on our family lake at our exclusive annual Harvest Moon Festival (Alberta, Canada) that is only open to musicians, family, friends and supporters. It is a weekend filled with an open stage, a huge family BBQ, workshops, games and fireworks.
Some projects in development include:
The MCMG Program (Middle Class Musician Growth) – A new self-funded growth program for musicians that leverages their revenue from their music. The program includes full distribution, banking, bookkeeping, tax, touring, management, branding and marketing services available through one comprehensive program. This program provides independent musicians with all of the support services of a label while still maintaining their independence and control over their music career.
ID VIP Team Media: This includes launching our own regional online radio stations and TV stations which will showcase the music of unsigned musicians. We are also building the foundations for an independent music magazine which will follow ID VIP Team as they support unsigned music artists in the music industry and showcase the individual stories and journeys of 3-4 musicians in each edition.
