Chris H. Giordano President and Chairman of Global added: “We are extremely excited to be working with Ed Strickland and the N.S.U.C team on all areas of opportunity that exist within the music industry.
We fully expect to be involved in the recording and promotion of new music with current artists, hosting live concerts, creating Music NFTs and bundling all of it with Authentic Heroes “Made from the Original” (“MFTO”) collectible apparel. This is the convergence of the digital and physical worlds that will help us build our brand
Just about every major music company has bought a merchandise company since it is the natural complement to live concerts and recorded music. It becomes a substantial revenue stream for both the artists and the record label.
With N.S.U.C. we will be creating our own footprint by creating and owning the music as well as already owning a merchandise company through the Authentic Heroes subsidiary which we feel has a technology and market advantage over other more established merchandise companies.
Unlike typical merchandise sold at concerts or online, our merchandise is created through a patented process that allows you to own a slice of your favorite bands’ concert worn apparel. We believe fans will love owning merchandise that contains the authenticated fibers from a bands’ stage worn clothing that is digitally authenticated, collectible, wearable and registered in their name on our Blockchain
Promoting “live events” with N.S.U.C. and top artists will give us an ability to cross market both our physical and our digital products to concert goers both before and after the venues have taken place.
Our joint venture with N.S.U.C will give us the experience and reach that we need to create our own record label giving us a tremendous augmentation to the already existing 17,000 songs we have exclusive access to within the Maestro Entertainment joint venture announced earlier this year
With music catalogue prices running at all-time highs we believe that our all of joint ventures into the music space and beyond will add tremendous value for Global shareholders.
We are truly looking forward to working with Ed and the N.S.U.C. team which will bring us opportunities that may be otherwise un-reachable given the time, effort and expense it would take to try and develop the relationships and credibility achieved by Ed and his team at N.S.U.C.”
Ed Strickland stated “I am extremely excited to be working with Chris and the Authentic Heroes team. The cross promotion opportunities that exist within the joint venture are substantial. We will be working with both great legacy artists as well great contemporary artists across all genres of music and creating one of a kind fan experiences together.
Being able to co-produce “live events” with top talent and combine that with Authentic Heroes one of a kind merchandise is a tremendous value-add for the concert goer, which translates into several potential revenue streams for our venues
From just one concert can come a variety of opportunities ranging from Vinyl Records of the concert, Music NFTs of the concert and collectible merchandise made from the stage worn clothing. Fan experience is everything. It develops brand loyalty and repeat business.
We at N.S.U.C. truly look forward to a very fruitful relationship with Authentic Heroes and are eager to start our venue together in the very near future.
Chris Giordano further stated: This is just the beginning of our journey into the into the possibilities that exist around the Authentic Heroes proposition. We are very enthusiastic about our relationship with N.S.U.C. and look forward to keeping you apprised of our progress.
