was started in 1986
by Sal Canzonieri, formerly known as the guitarist and
songwriter of one of the first Stoner Rock bands, NYC cult band, The
and mastermind behind the highly successful "A Fistful of Rock &
compilation record series. Sal also is the author of many music and
martial arts articles for various magazines, such as "Seconds",
"Guitar", "Wu Shu Kung Fu", and others. Currently, Sal has authored an
Electric Frankenstein art book that is published by Dark Horse Books,
Inc. After being involved in all facets of the
industry since he was 1975, Sal decided to unite his
music business experience and his desire to write songs and play music
into one production company, BGT ENT.
"Most bands and artists have no idea about the
business side of things and don't usually see all the behind the scenes
stuff that takes place," says Sal Canzonieri, also known for
his artist's rights crusading and consultation work. "I would like to
help other artists be able to be self suffient so that they do not get
ripped off and discouraged about music. I think that a band from
internet era can be successful without a record label and with self
management. Helping musicians
benefit from my experience and success in the business is rewarding
because a lot of great bands get to be heard before they are forced to
break up over the business of making music".
BGT ENT, provides consultation services to
bands and artists, both in music and print art, in the areas of
marketing and sales, promotions, publicity, artistic direction,
strategy, and more. Also BGT ENT works with bands that need a
producer that has worked from both sides of the fence when it comes to
the recording studio. Finally, BGT ENT also provides artists with
help with song writing.
The company focuses on many aspects of popular
cuture, such as video game development, toy design, Rock & Roll poster art, and music which
can be defined
as non-mainstream Punk and Rock & Roll bands of all types.
Our goal is to keep revitalizing Rock & Roll, to keep music
exciting both live and on record, so that people will always be able to
enjoy the Real Rock & Roll experience.
"A Fistful of Rock & Roll is a great means of
the Real Rock & Roll crusade," says Sal Canzonieri, a
fan of all types of Rock & Roll
since his teen years. "Bands that are writing songs that make people
excited to be
alive and really happy to have heard the songs is what makes all their
hard work worth it!"
