Mike Moscato

Mike Moscato, owner of Sardonyx Productions, has not only spent many years as a musician, but received a bachelor's degree at Columbia College in Chicago, focusing on business as related to the arts/music. Also, he has spent the last several years making connections with very experienced people in the music business from Pittsburgh as well as Cleveland, Chicago, Columbus and Philadelphia, not to mention the big music cities of Los Angeles, Nashville and New York.

In 2009, Sardonyx Productions produced the FIRST National Music Conference in Pittsburgh, featuring music professionals from around the country speaking at panel discussions and watching the local Pittsburgh artists! In attendance were a LEGENDARY record label executive, an extremely accomplished A & R consultant from Jive Records, another well-accomplished form A & R executive that worked at several record labels and managed Dream Theater, NSAI songwriters, well-known booking agents, managers, publicists and some great local (and regional) bands. 3 of those bands were offered DEALS from Jive Records after that night!

2010 was the 2nd National Music Conference, featuring a record label consultant from Atlantic Records, the promotions manager from the biggest indie label in the U.S., 2 fantastic producers from the West and East coasts, 2 entertainment attorneys and more! A musician in one of the bands featured at the music conference was offered the chance to audition in L.A. for Emphatic, signed by Atlantic Records, and he got the position! Also, musicians had the opportunity to sign up that day and play a song for the Atlantic consultant for a professional critique. Both conferences offered the chance for musicians and music business people to learn from some great professionals in the industry, which rarely if ever happens in this region.

2011 we started the Pittsburgh High School Rock Challenge, to motivate young musicians and help them reach some music goals. 2012 was the Erie High School Rock Challenge. Both events were huge in the music community, and we look forward to doing them again this year. Our other focus is to help GREAT bands to play in different cities, and give them exposure to many different audiences around the country.
