VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Alex Martinelli of Lex Martin Presents
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben chats with promoter and talent buyer Alex Martinelli, who is the owner of the event planning company Lex Martin Presents. He books primarily at The Miramar Theatre and has expanded his brand into a record label (Lex Recs) and artist management (Lex Mgmt). They discussed Alex’s entry into the music industry, booking his favorite EDM artists, the history of the Miramar, seeing ICP, and “riddim”.
