The Green Room & More

The Green Room is Wisconsin Music Venture’s passion lived out. We want to connect you and help get you to where you want to be within the music industry. More answers here on what the Green Room is all about.

View our current list of Green Room members here.

We are prioritizing Green Room musicians for all WMV live music events. 

Join our Green Room member waiting list by letting us know of your interest and joining the Backstage Pass Program. The BSP has openings now, and membership fees can be applied toward the Green Room membership cost if/when applicable. 

We will revisit our wait list as more events and staff hours become available, and may be able to accommodate additional members at those times.

While we would love to help every musician, our organization is small and we have to limit the amount of musicians we work with. In order to be accepted into The Green Room, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must provide a link to an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) or provide links to information that makes up an EPK
  • You must have a functioning website (with a bio, photos, videos, and contact info)
  • You must provide a link for us to listen to your music or previous performances (recordings, Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music, BandCamp, YouTube, etc.)
  • You must have at least two hours of music for a performance set ready
  • We meet with and will want to attend a live performance of each new Green Room member before he or she is a part of our program. 

*Any application not conforming to the specifications above may be ineligible at the discretion of WMV*
