Strictly Bidness 

School of Rap is Our Level 1 Showcase circuit that evolved from CT Indie Fest  which was held on September 1st 2017.  The Concept was simple:  Experienced artist, artist who were just starting, photographers, media personalities - all local - in the same building participating in a hip hop event.

2019 we have incorporated interviews from our media personality, The Fab Life of Dri as part of the School of Rap experience.  Artist interested in getting on sight interviews can schedule a interview as part of their performance slot.  Check out Dri on Youtube!

School Of Rap is a GREAT WAY to introduce yourself to the Strictly Bidness Management and experience what we do for artist as part of the School Of Rap experience.

Artist who may need development but are not ready for a management relationship, can sign up for a monthly service where we promote, manage and develop you on a one on one basis, this is for serious artist interested in performing locally and nationally.

Not Your Average Showcase 

Strictly Bidness incorporates Digital Promotion with the performance opportunities as well as a simple way for artist to communicate with Strictly Bidness Management Via Phone, Email OR Social Media.  The goal is to help the artist promote their up coming performance to their fans and potential fans by providing simple promotional services with performance slots.

Knowledge is Power 

Strictly Bidness works very hard to promote educational content to help artist retain ownership of their music and brands.  We share links to help connect artist with the right services OR people depending on their situation.  This is HUGE for artist looking for some guidance without having to lock themselves into business relationships they may not be ready for.  This is how we give back to the hip hop community in CT.

Support Indie Talent 

With each slot we offer artist the opportunity to bring up to 6 people with them as well as an option to sell tickets for a % of ticket sales.  This is a easy way for artist to experience what it is like to promote their music for a up coming performance.  We educate the artist so they understand the value of selling tickets as part of being a indie artist.
