For my Fantasy Band Project I have chosen drummer Richard “Pistol” Allen from The Funk Brothers for my rhythm section. I have chosen 2pac as the main performer and Bob Marley to inspire the rhythm section and main performer. With this unique combination of talents we probably would create a smooth religious gospel rap. They would create a remix to Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” where 2Pac raps the verses and sings the Chorus with Bob Marley.
For the remix we will keep the same focus of the original track. We want to provide the listener with the feeling of security, no worries. 2Pac verses will share a street story that will uplift the listeners. My attention to details and up to date education are some of my unique producer talents that will help them in making a piece of art that is worthy of their talents. Having the ability to assist in any and every step of the project is really what gives me the ability to contribute towards this project. I would name the band Rasta Thugs to help people relate to the story of this project. The song will be marketed via the Internet and terrestrial radio to reach the intended audience.
One modern marketing tool to consider for this project is YouTube. With YouTube we will be able to reach our target market. Another modern marketing tools that we could benefit from are mobile apps. With the inclusion of a mobile app we will expand our reach faster by facilitating fans music directly from their mobile devices. They would be better on an indie label than major label because digital technology allows music sales on demand. A video will boost the project because of the already established fan base of both artists. Besides without a music video it’s nearly impossible to market music in today’s entertainment industry!
