VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Allison Emm of Wisconsin Music Ventures
Our Music Director, 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.
This time around, Ben sat down with Allison Emm, who runs Wisconsin Music Ventures – a membership-based program that gets musicians gigs at unconventional venues across Wisconsin and building community amongst them. She’s also a classically trained French horn player and hosts The Musician’s Venture podcast. They discussed how WMV was conceptualized, how it’s evolved, plans for the future, the difference between WMV and a booking agency, and the wide range of musicians involved.
