“I WANT MY MVD” MUSIC VIDEO SHOWCASE

What an amazing night of multi-talented artists! Each displayed three of their current music videos, along with insider info chats by emcee Kameltoe via Zoom.

January 30th was RTD’s first music video review featuring five unforgettable artists with incredible trending videos.  From across the U.S. was Inconsistent Me, Tommy Gibbons,  Mike Covers and Brye; and from Spain, Luna Keller. You can view the event on Instagram TV @rockthedreamnonprofit.

The Q 102.9 helped promote this nod to the days of MTV with interviews by each artist and airing of their new singles.

It was such a success that we will be returning with round 2 in March! Stay tuned for more details.

Here’s a few photos!!

MVD ARTISTS INVADE THE Q 102.9

RTD’s Music Video event artists have taken over the airwaves on the Q 102.9! On-air personality Bryan James individually interviewed Inconsistent Me, Mike Covers, Luna Keller and Tommy Gibbons — all appeared on our very first “I Want My MVD”, which featured the music videos of each performer.

“Bryan is such a lovely person,” said Luna. The biggest promotional boost was playing their new singles on air.

Throughout February, RTD will be scheduling its Virtual Live Concert artists on the Q’s interviewing spots. Listen in every Wednesday morning at 7:10 am (MST):

Traveling hundreds of miles through Michigan, Indiana and Ohio in just five days, Inconsistent Me marks the end to another FUN High School Tour with a twist. Getting to each state, right before the school systems closed was pure luck, until Michigan where he missed the last closure by 24 hours.

“We crossed our fingers that the tour wouldn’t be cancelled, and he made it through all but one . . . that’s a win!” stated Angelica Herrera, Rock the Dream Concert Coordinator.

Since he launched his solo career on his first tour back in April 2019, he has accomplished three tours in over five states and 14 schools, performing in front of hundreds of new fans.

Due to the virus outbreak and the question of when and how schools will re-open, his next Rock the Campus tour is delayed to the Spring of 2021 with plans to squeeze in at least four tour routes through December.
