Wild Rock Wine - Proud To Be On Board With The NZ@CMJ Showcase

The Wild Rock Wine Company was excited to be involved in the NZ@CMJ showcase at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York last night. The NZ@CMJ Showcase is one of CMJ's opening night events and is a collaboration between New Zealand music promotion agencies NZ On Air and the NZ Music Commission - with the goal being to assist Kiwi acts to break into the international arena.

At Wild Rock we are proud of all things Kiwi, especially great New Zealand music and we couldn't think of a better way of showing our support for this awesome batch of new talent than by helping out with this event. Along with over 1000 kiwi music loving fans Wild Rock wines were on hand to represent the best flavours of New Zealand and help quench the thirst during an action packed night of taking in a range of sounds from hip hop to power pop.

Featuring at the showcase this year were Die! Die! Die!, Surf City, Motocade, Kingston, Bang Bang Eche and Kidz In Space, along with hip hop acts David Dallas and Smashproof.

The NZ@CMJ showcase event began in 2007. The inaugural showcase was dubbed 'one of the hottest tickets at CMJ' by UK music bible NME and helped gain traction in the US for the likes of Liam Finn, Cut Off Your Hands and The Brunettes. The word spread and the 2008 show was crammed too for Bang Bang Eche, The Naked & Famous and college radio darlings The Ruby Suns.

Vice President of Content at CMJ Network Rev. Moose commented, "New Zealand knows how to party with style. I'm always impressed with the quality of artists represented by this relatively small population from the other side of the globe. The Kiwis have done a stellar job branding their nationality as a collection of stunning sounds from deserving new talent. CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival is proud to be a destination for emerging artists from such a bountiful source".

We knew our range of award winning wines would fit perfectly with the event, the surrounds, and of course - the music, and we were right! The crew at Wild Rock look forward to getting on board in supporting more homegrown music with our next gig 'Wild Bill Ricketts and the Celebration Minstrels' at the iconic San Francisco Bathhouse in Wellington. Wild Bill, from the Phoenix Foundation, is banding with members of Fat Freddy's Drop and other outstanding musicians this December. Keep an eye on www.wildrockwine.co.nz for more details.
