Renaissance for Westbound Records

DETROIT, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 14, 2005 -- Detroit, Michigan label Westbound Records will unveil their new talent roster Friday August 26, 2005 at the State Theatre. The showcase will feature bassist Tony "TMoney" Green and local Detroit bands on Westbound's latest release, "TMoneyGreen Presents Westbound Records: The Next Generation."

Doors open at 6:00pm, performances begin at 9:00pm. $15 admission includes a complimentary copy of the CD.

Artists scheduled to appear are 6-0 Playa feat. Skigh-Illa, James Wailin, Buddha Fulla Rhymez, Ceed, Critical Bill, RIB, and Roadwork.

"These bands were handpicked by me, because these acts know how to promote, fill a room, sell CDs and write good music," informs Green. "They do it all. That gets veterans like me and Armen (Boladian, President of Westbound Records) excited about the music industry again."

TMoney has graced the stage with classic R&B group The Dramatics, godfather of funk George Clinton, and can be heard thumpin' left-handed on platinum tracks "Gin and Juice" and "Doggy Dogg World" by Snoop Dogg, "Indo Smoke" by Warren G & Mista Grim, and "Let Me Ride(RMX)" by Dr. Dre. He has also worked with Oleta Adams, Ice Cube, Shaquille O' Neal, Robbie Robertson, and Eric Sermon.

Under the helm of Armen Boladian, Westbound Records brought such groups as The Fantastic Four, The Detroit Emeralds, Funkadelic, the Ohio Players, Denise LaSalle, and many classic R&B, funk and disco groups to prominence in the 1970s.

"We wanna show Detroit that we (Westbound) never left, and this new talent truly represents Detroit and its musical legacy," adds Green.
