The Limelight was founded to help artists build a fan-base, while making it easier for music fans to find high quality music and shows. We leverage our music business experiences and relationships to add value to our site users. The Limelight is an artist development platform. We help artists to take the next step in their careers, by providing them networking opportunities, shows, promotion, label submissions, radio, DJ, PR, management or consulting, depending on their needs.
Users are able to create shows and tours and post them to their profiles. These shows will be shareable to popular social networks.
This tool makes it easier for music fans to discover new local talent and attend their shows and tours. The Limelight is the LinkedIn for the music industry.
Wayne is an excellent leader with passion and drive for whatever project he's involved in. His initiative is like no other and Wayne really knows how to network and get things done. With my band, he has helped increase our exposure ten-fold. His work includes marketing for our Christmas album, video production for our performances, securing gigs at pageants, showcases, and the Apollo, and connecting us with Grammy-nominated songwriters, producers and executives. There is no other person you'd want on your team than Wayne! He will fight for you and see your success through until the end.

Wayne Banks II is one of the hardest working visionaries I know! The limelight internet showcase is a genius idea! It is an interactive platform that can be used to propel the careers of aspiring music makers! This website can be used to market and promote projects and help up and coming acts find success in the music industry. There is a lot of talent out there that has not been tapped into-the limelight offers a platform for dynamic artists to build their careers. The limelight is different because it redefines artist development using the web as a platform. Using the limelight will help artist book venues, increase their popularity, help them network with people in the music industry, and increase their views on YouTube. The business already has 10,000 members-that was done without funding! The limelight internet showcase needs funds in order to fulfill its full potential and support the clientele that are served by the business.
