San Francisco (-1st of October 2013-) NSM Music, Inc., one of the world’s leading suppliers of commercial jukebox music systems, and Playmysong, the creator of the popular mobile social jukebox app that has taken the world by storm, announced a new partnership at the SF Music Tech conference. The companies have launched an interactive music service which gives bar patrons the power to DJ the music around them while giving bars the chance to earn more revenue with paid song requests made by patrons.
Playmysong’s mobile social jukebox app provides a crowdsourced DJ experience to tens of thousands of private parties, weddings, BBQs, tailgating parties, with new uses being invented by users every day. NSM Music provides commercial, interactive pay-to-play music systems in thousands of locations in North America, Europe, Australasia and Africa. Together, the new service connects Playmysong’s iPad jukebox app with NSM Music’s fully licensed and comprehensive music library. Bars can immediately launch the Playmysong NSM Jukebox service with a network connected iPad, and start earning revenue share from the paid song requests that bar patrons make.
“Since last year we’ve gotten loads of requests from US venues to provide a solution that includes a fully licensed music library. Our partnership with NSM Music allows us to provide this turnkey service”, said Rami Korhonen, co-founder and CEO. The new Playmysong NSM app integrates with popular social networks, allowing venues to offer patrons a limited number of free songs in return for checking in on Foursquare, liking on Facebook and tweeting on Twitter. After that, customers pay for each song request. “Our mission is to give people the power to influence the music around them everywhere they go”, continued Rami, “and this joint service with NSM Music allows us to do it in a way that benefits bars, bar patrons and rights holders,”
“NSM has been a leader in interactive, in-venue music for 60 years”, says Bob Cooney, NSM Music’s Senior Vice President. “As opposed to most commercial music services, NSM Music offers services that increase the profits for our customers. As consumer adoption of smartphones continues to grow, it is strategically important for NSM to offer a product that is relevant to today’s bar patron. Partnering with Playmysong enables us to offer a fully-licensed, cutting edge, mobile and social music experience for patrons that actually earns money for our locations.”
The Playmysong Venue Jukebox app is available today from the iPhone App Store as a free download.
