Seeking Wedding Musicians, Wedding Bands, Wedding Singers...

Cover and Original Artists!

After over a year on the Bridal Show circuit all over the state of Iowa, I came to realize I had seen maybe two Wedding Musicians and TONS of D.J.s and other Wedding Professionals.  There seemed no place to sit, listen and see firsthand Artists and Bands that could be considered for a Wedding Ceremony or Reception!  See a need, fill a need and so we created the Heart of Iowa Wedding Showcase to bring those Musicians to the stage for you to see and hear, as well as receive a Live Recorded CD sampler of all the Musicians that Showcased their talents that day! 


The Musicians will be both included in the Heart of Iowa Wedding Showcase CD Sampler, Vol. 1 for April 7th and Vol.2 for November 17th, 2019; as well as receive quality MP3's of their live recordings, as will the VIP Ticket holders who will be emailed a link to the MP3 downloads within 2 weeks of the show.  So our Musicians get to perform for a wedding planning audience, get live recording samples of their work and include their marketing materials in the Swag Bags and obtain a leads list of show attendees! Fill out the form below and we will contact you about joining the Heart of Iowa family!
