What is Rock Island Management? We are dedicated to the support and development of new artists! Our artists play shows, year round, from Montalk to Manhattan, have access to our deals on pre-sales, merch, studio time, and FREE distribution through our label. Our artists keep 100% of their royalties and merch, plus 100% of what they make playing on shows we didn't book! Rock Island is all about the artists, not the money! So why do we have a Threadless page? Well, we're not about the money, but it does make the world go round, and we do need to raise funds in order to spread our message to a wider audience! The money we make on Threadless goes towards booking bigger venues, bigger headliners, and spreading our message westward! We offer free advice and assistance with whatever young artists need, from booking to social media, we're willing to do all of it, so the bands don’t have to! As a former artist, I believe that if I can take away all the burdens that a band has, they can focus on what’s important, the music! How much better would things be, if your band just had to practice, play, and have fun? That’s what we want too! Once all the other stuff is taken care of, bands can focus on growth and development. So what Rock Island really is, is a group of bands that support each other, led by a promoter with fifteen years of experience, who supports them right back!
