Kent State Students Give it the Ol' DIY Try

Posted By on Wed, Apr 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

They’re not Quincy Jones or Clive Davis just yet. But the students in Gene Shelton’s record-promotions class at Kent State are giving it the ol’ college try at making stars out of Northeast Ohio bands. The class has founded GTB (“Got to Believe) Records . So far, they’ve signed five acts, including Kent folkie Chittlin, Toledo rockers Strike Out Pro, the regally named Cleveland rapper Sir, and alt-rockers Goose and Speedbump, both of Akron. The labelmates will perform on May 3 at the Kent Stage to showcase tracks off their compilation CD. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $5 at the door. -- Cris Glaser
