Rochester’s premiere music interview and performance show, the Rochester Indie Musician Spotlight is dedicated to showcasing Rochester’s nationally recognized local and independent music scene. Hosted by journalist Dan Gross, the Spotlight achieves it’s goal by combining “Off Camera with Sam Jones,” “NPR: Tiny Desk,” and “Austin City Limits” with the old-school lens of “American Bandstand.”

Thoughts from the Artists

The Brothers Blue wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our experience on your show.  

We loved doing it in front of a live audience, I think it made it much more relaxed and natural for us.  Your prep was thorough and made for good conversation we think our fans really enjoyed seeing.  

The editing and camera shots are incredible.  We ended up with a video of performances we’re proud of and pleased to get in front of the world.  You provide the music community with a thorough and purposeful outlet to the music community at large.
