Orlando FL., March 8, 2023 —

The Florida Songwriters Association announced that John Landers has been named Regional Chapter Coordinator of the Tampa Bay area.  John Landers, who has served as CEO (TBAIMS) The Big Apple Indie Music Series.

In 2010, Jon Landers started a networking event in Danbury, CT as part of a networking group called Network Plus founded by the late Ted Fattoross and later became Networking With Music. Jon invited a local band to come to the Palace Theatre in Danbury to connect with different businesses. And there was a meet & greet with the band at the end. This was the catalyst to start The Big Apple Indie Music Series in New York City starting at the Gibson Guitar Studios on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan. Some of the other venues where the showcases were held was Tammany Hall, Ella Lounge, The Cutting Room, Tobacco Road, Latin Quarter and finally Toshi’s Living Room. All but one has since closed down.
