Crossdogs.com Retains WDC Media to Promote Innovative Online System Connecting Christian Musicians to Top Ministry and Music Opportunities
NASHVILLE -- The Christian public relations firm WDC Media announced to day that it has been retained by Crossdogs.com, the innovative online booking and promotional system that effectively connects Christian musicians to thousands of potential ministry opportunities. Crossdogs.com will officially launch and be fully functional on January 1st.
“Crossdogs is one of the most revolutionary and forward thinking players to arrive on the music scene in a long time,” said Dave Bohon, Vice President for Project Management with WDC Media. “We’re proud to represent them and we’re certain their service to Christian musicians will quickly put thousands of worthy independent bands and artists out where they belong – performing and ministering in churches, festivals, and other relevant venues.”
Created by two veterans of the Christian music business, Gary LeMaster and Brant Christopher Menswar, Crossdogs.com is designed to address the two most fundamental issues faced by Christian musicians: Finding relevant places to perform and receiving adequate reimbursement for their time and travel.
“It’s been a perennial problem for Christian musicians,” said LeMaster. “Traveling hundreds of miles to minister at a church, coffee house, or concert, and then playing your heart out for a meal and maybe a small offering.”
With the corporate slogan “Where Potential Meets Opportunity,” Crossdogs.com is set to completely revolutionize how musicians and bands communicate with venues, book dates, and take advantage of the nearly unlimited opportunities that exist within the Christian music industry.
For a small annual membership fee, musicians use Crossdogs.com to create their own Electronic Dog Tag™ (EDT™), which is a user friendly, web-based press kit that includes all the elements of a traditional hard-copy press kit – plus audio and video demos, a photo album, and much more. They then e-mail the EDTs to their own list of churches and other ministry venues, eliminating the high costs of duplicating and mailing hard-copy press kits.
In addition, Crossdogs enables artists to view opportunities from its exclusive list of promoters, churches, festivals, and other venues, and offers them a special option to submit their EDTs to this “A List” of performance opportunities.
Each of the ministry venues that partners with Crossdogs receives a free listing for its available opportunity on the Crossdogs.com website. “Churches and venues end up with top-notch artists to fill their openings, as well as 50 percent of every submission fee,” explained LeMaster.
“What Crossdogs is doing is very simple,” he said. “We’re giving a major group of independent artists and musicians access to venues they would normally have a very difficult time connecting with. And we’re giving venues and churches the resources to bless these artists and ministers.”
Added Menswar, “The world needs to hear God’s Word in many different ways and coming from many difference sources. Money should never be an obstacle. Crossdogs enables churches to bring in quality Christian artists without the worry of going over budget. Bands and musicians find great places to play and opportunities to minister. It’s a win-win format for everyone involved.”
Said Susan Zahn, President of WDC Media and an expert in faith-based culture and media, “It’s this kind of innovative approach to ministry that is providing opportunities and getting the gospel message out to many different audiences. WDC Media is blessed to be part of Crossdogs’ revolutionary endeavor.”
Crossdogs.com is an innovative online resource that uses its exclusive Electronic Dog Tag™ press kit system to creatively connect Christian musicians to relevant ministry and performance opportunities. For more information visit www.crossdogs.com.
