Coinciding with the event, GNO, Inc. and Louisiana Entertainment hosted two gatherings for the music industry to promote Louisiana as an ideal location for music business operations:  a mixer for the Producers and Engineers Guild of the Grammy’s which celebrates the people behind the microphone – including local Jay Weigel, who produced the Grammy-winning Lost Bayou Ramblers live album; and, an event for music executives in Los Angeles.
