JACKSON, MO, JANUARY 24, 2011 â€• The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, is pleased to announce that a total of 27 performing artists have signed exclusive endorsement contracts with the company, including Drive By Truckers, the Charlie Daniels Band, Matt and Kim, Underoath and the Randy Rogers Band, to name a few. >
With a majority of the music industry becoming flanked with younger artists who look to purchase the gear that their favorite bands use, RapcoHorizon recognized the power of on-stage endorsement. In the last year, RapcoHorizon has made it a priority to support national and regional bands who help further promote the company's line of products.
“If bands like Gary Allan or Anberlin, which perform in front of thousands of people weekly, trust RapcoHorizon snakes and cables for their shows, then it allows the weekend show bands to be excited and comfortable with using the products for their own gigs,” says Lucas McCulley, marketing specialist at The RapcoHorizon Company. “Many of the bands we have signed merely saw RapcoHorizon cables and splitter snakes being used by another band and decided they wanted their own.”
The RapcoHorizon artists extend across a variety of genres such as country, southern rock, alternative, reggae, metalcore and Christian. Other endorsement artists include: Corey Smith, Neal McCoy, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Dirty Guv'nahs, The Hold Steady, Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars, A Day to Remember, August Burns Red, Silverstein, Crowbar, Circleslide, Southern Brothers and The McKameys. Local Missouri bands that promote RapcoHorizon are The John D. Hale Band, Mike Renick Band and The Fallen.
