Press Media Contact
Kirsten Vermulen at email@example.com is itchy-O’s primary contact for marketing/publicity
In all formats, “itchy-O” should be stylized to be spelled with a lower-cased “i” unless the first letter of a sentence. Examples:
“This show will include itchy-O.”
“Itchy-O will be included on this bill.”
Itchy-O has not worked under the “marching band” moniker in over seven years and has been making all efforts to move away from this label. Please refrain from listing itchy-O as a marching band or a “flash-mob.”
(please credit photographers whenever possible)
Please reach out to local press, publications, blogs and radio stations to involve them in promoting the show. Itchy-O will work in conjunction to support all promotional efforts as possible.
All radio promotional proposals must be submitted for review and approval before any contesting begins on-air. No presents of any kind (radio, sponsor, or otherwise) may be given without written approval. No meet & greets or “grand prizing” may be promised.
All interview and photo pass requests from radio, print media, and digital outlets should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Itchy-O is not completely anonymous. We credit crew and performers in published works but stay anonymous in social, radio, and editorial media.
