TV Producer, Record Label Partner To Form New Company

Television producer Richard Dominick and Horizon Entertainment—parent company to indie record label Goomba Music –have announced that they have partnered to form a brand new company titled, Richard Dominick Entertainment Group.  The goal of the new company is to serve as a bridge between music and reality TV production.  The new company already has plans to start filming new full length movies this Spring.  Casting for the movies will take place at the company’s Detroit and Chicago offices.

Dominick, whose credits include Executive Producer of the truTV’s Hardcore Pawn, Executive Producer of The Jerry Springer Show from 1994 – 2008, and Creator and Executive Producer of The Steve Wilkos Show (2007) was clearly excited about the new partnership when interviewed.  “Working within another production house, sometimes leads itself to creative differences”, Dominick said.  “Now when there’s creative differences, I will only have to argue with myself – which is a good thing because my other personality is that of a small Filipino woman and I can take her…” “After so many years of working within the boundaries and limitations of other production companies”, he continues, “I now have what all producers dream of—creative freedom.  This company is a match made in Heaven, and if by chance we end up arguing amongst ourselves, it’ll make a great reality show.  I think when I changed The Jerry Springer Show from Phil Donahue to a show where everyone was welcome to come on the show and air their grievances, it was the beginning of “reality TV” and Springer became the number one show in syndication.  Now, Hardcore Pawn is truTV’s biggest hit. Expect this new company to continue and surpass those successes. 

Greg Wier, CEO of Horizon Entertainment and Goomba Music also shared his thoughts on the new partnership.  “We are thrilled to form this new company with Richard, joining our talents and utilizing our strengths to bring the world a new and exciting full service entertainment company.  By combining his successful track record in television with our accomplishments as an independent record company that has worldwide distribution, the possibilities for new entertainment ventures are endless.  We have a lot of new plans for movies, television, series and record releases that will be announced in the coming weeks.

Goomba Music is home to Brand New Sin, Open Air Stereo, Scum of the Earth, Temple of Thieves and hip-hop artist, A.N.T.  The company originally formed in 2011 and has already released records from Soil, Dark New Day, Pro-Pain, and Puddle of Mudd.

Charm City Devils’ “Sins” anything but deadly

It’s about who you know, not what you know.  Who hasn’t heard that old adage?  Well, when a name the likes of Nikki Sixx personally gives his seal of approval, and even asks a band out on tour, odds are that band is not going to say no.  Thus, one of maisntream rock’s next big acts began its career in 2009.  The act in question is Baltimore, MD based Charm City Devils.  The band’s sophomore record, “Sin” will be on store shelves tomorrow.  And it goes without saying that this new record is anything but deadly.  However, it’s a record that’s a perfect fit for mainstream rock radio.

“Sin” opens with a full throttle, no nonsense adrenaline pumper in ‘Spite.’  The band keeps the adrenaline flowing at max speed with the defiant, fist pumper, ‘Unstoppable’ right after that.  ‘Man of Constant Sorrow’ is quite the interesting cover.  It takes the hit song from George Clooney’s hit movie, and gives it a decidedly new vibe.  The band kicks things right back into gear after that cover, with another high adrenaline track in ‘Still Alive.’  ‘Devil is a Woman’ is one of those standard testosterone-fueled rock tracks that no true hard rock record is complete without.  So many audiences can relate to this one.  The vibe from here on out is little different, as the band keeps the energy at its highest until gently depositing listeners on another shore at the album’s end in the ballad, ‘All You’ll Ever Need.’  It’s just enough to leave audiences with a sense of total fulfillment as they catch their breaths.

‘Sins’ is a great record.  Even had Charm City Devils not gotten the nod from Nikki Sixx, “Sins” shows that the band would still have been able to make a name for itself on its own.  But it never hurts to have the backing of such a big name.  Now, with the right support from fans and mainstream rock radio, audiences nationwide may very well be hearing a lot more from this band in the near future.  It’s a great record for fans of bands such as:  Buckcherry, Black Stone Cherry, Brand New Sin, and others of that ilk.  Fans who want to check out the band live will get their chance as the band will be heading out on tour, beginning next Thursday, April 19th in Roanoke, VA.  From there, the band heads to Maryland, before charting a course through the midwest.  The band’s lone west coast date will be May 1st in Spokane, WA.  No dates in North Carolina as of yet.  But fans can keep up to date with all the band’s dates on its facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/charmcitydevils.  Fans can also follow the band on Twitter at http://twitter.com/CharmCityDevils.  The band is currently working on a new official website.  Fans can keep an eye on the progress of that website at http://www.charmcitydevils.
