Setting Yourself Apart In The Entertainment Industry

originalityAs an agency that works within the entertainment industry the R&B Management Group is often approached by people looking for assistance in some form or another. While many of those inquiries are rejected for a variety of reasons; there’s still a trend that is being seen. Those who claim to want to enter the many different facets of the entertainment world are struggling to set themselves apart. Unfortunately for them, being original is one of the most important steps to finding a breakthrough.

Just as in everyday life, individuality is important when looking to advance your career. Too often the public is subjected to copy cat artists that are looking to make the most off of the work that someone else has established. However, if one was to look at some of the biggest names in entertainment today one would see a trend of acts that have reached the top by not being like anyone that has come before them.

Lady Gaga, Pink, Kendrick Lamar and OutKast are some of the most prominent names in music. While they have all put out music that will live on for ages; their fans can point towards the ways they have set themselves apart within the industry. Whether it’s OutKast’s different take on southern Hip Hop or Lady Gaga’s often controversial lyrics; these acts are not only known for their music – but for a factor that makes them original at the same time. In some cases it will be these original “quirks” for which they will be more known than their musical career overall.

OriginalQuoteThat type of enthusiasm to be different needs to be cultivated in today’s entertainment industry. Not just in music, but in sports, film, writing and every other area that requires the consumption of content. Being original is often looked down upon by the masses at first, but it always seems to change as what’s different soon becomes popular.

When getting your career started, stick to the guns that make you different. Find a new sound, writing style, training regimen or some other way to set yourself apart from the crowd. More often than not the consistent practice will push you in the right direction.

Update on “The Promoters” documentary

The Promoters LogoThe R&B Management Group has been working hard to continue working on our documentary chronicling the world of night life promotions. With that in mind we’re providing an update on the progress of “The Promoters.”

As the season changes from the cold and brutal winter that many endured to the exciting time of spring and summer, the desire to go out and party seems to hit everyone harder. With that in mind “The Promoters” is expected to kick off the first series of shoots to create the first season looking into the night life industry.

Current plans are for the taping of a major event within the Washington DC metro area during the big July 4th weekend. This is an important party time that kicks off some of the biggest events of the summer. While “The Promoters” won’t reveal the exact group or event that is planned at this time; it’s worth noting that the production is planned with one of the premiere groups in the area and top night life venues in the DMV area.

From March to May we ran an Indiegogo campaign with the hopes of raising $3000 for the production of the show. Unfortunately we were unable to raise the funds requested but we did gather a large amount of attention and support for our efforts. With that improved direction and a growing list of connections, “The Promoters” is clearly headed in the right direction.

Plans are to debut the first season of “The Promoters” during early to late August. Keep an eye out for the R&B Management Group to release information about the show through all of our social media channels.
