Robin Thicke, MC Lyte and Monica Headline Shannon Brown’s Wood-Star Music Festival


What can music fans look forward to?

We have assembled artists that can deliver on stage. All the artists are coming with their full band so music fans can expect a great show. This is a show that you want to be there from the beginning to the end. You won’t want to miss any of the performances, because we have true talent.

How do you incorporate social media in your business plan?

Social media has been critical to getting the buzz out. We started promoting the event on Twitter. Fortunately, I have 220,000 followers so I was able to spread the word early across the country. Since we are looking to make it a destination event social media has been a great way to extend our reach. We will also leverage social media during the even to make it a true interactive experience.

What is your best advice for future promoters and event organizers?

My best advice is to get a good team. Anyone can come up with a great concept but you need to have the right people to implement the concept. I would also say stay focused and don’t worry about what others have to say. You will face hurdles and challenges with anything you do but when you are passionate about what you do, you will get there.
