Homegrown Music Entity NYSCONNECTIONS Grows in Hudson Valley

Sullivan County resident Naomi Mombrun along with several her friends have embarked on a creative music promotions entity that is making a name throughout the Hudson Valley.

Operating in its third year as NYSCONNECTIONS – artists and musical groups are provided with an opportunity to display their skills in an alternative platform.

These events attract a wide composition of genres from Classic Rock to Hip-Hop to Rhythm and Blues within the Hudson Valley.

Incorporating “networking” as an important element of each Artist
Showcase/Industry Mixer, the NYSCONNECTIONS encourages those with an interest in the entertainment industry to attend.

Aspiring artists, photographers, music producers, film makers, fashion designers, illustrators, and dancers from the Hudson Valley and points beyond have appeared.

One fundamental core characteristic of a NYSCONNECTIONS event encompass a workshop with “reputable” and “credible” entertainment industry professionals.

Considering that the industry is broad in scope, the organization’s executive administrator, Naomi Mombrun recognizes the multiple and diverse layers that make up the entertainment industry.

“Grammy nominated and award winning music producer Mr. Alex Salzman; Grammy nominated sound engineer Mr. Peter Darmi; Chronogram music editor Mr. Peter Aaron; and senior partner of the law firm of Jacobowitz and Gubits, Mr. Gary Schuster, have appeared at previous events,” she noted.

In 2015, NYS CONNECTIONS held several events in Sullivan County including Bernie’s Holiday Restaurant at the Rivoli Theatre and more are slated in Sullivan County.

Residents who attended the events were fortunate to watch local and artists from the Hudson Valley perform.

This Thursday evening, August 25, 2016 at Schlesinger’s Steak House in New Windsor, NYS CONNECTIONS will present live performances by
Angele Pepe, Jules Taylor, Living Intermission, L-Squad, and several other

Making an appearance as guest professional speaker is Sullivan County resident and former Monticello Mayor Gary Sommers. Sommers is currently president of the Film and Theatrical Workers Union 353.

Music will be provided by the Krowd Kings. Doors open at 8 PM, and Admission is $5, including a complimentary lite buffet.

It is refreshing to see these creative Sullivan County residents expand their business throughout the Hudson Valley.
