KMD Productions announces that the second annual Recording Industry Poker Tournament is scheduled to be held at Los Angeles’ Village Studios on Sunday, August 1, 2010. Hosted by Grammy Award-winning engineer David Reitzas, this Texas Hold ‘Em charity poker tournament brings together more than 100 of the music industry’s top producers, engineers, musicians and audio manufacturers with proceeds benefiting Sound Art L.A.

Sound Art engages children of all ages in music education, giving them access to the tools of popular music and the guidance of professional musicians as instructors. Instructors travel to the sites they serve and engage neighborhoods instead of requiring students to come to a specific location. The program is mobile, flexible and part of the community. The organization offers programs at all grade levels, during and after school, at community centers, juvenile detention centers and camps.

Reitzas created this event one year ago as a way of bringing the recording industry community and manufacturers together, while supporting and raising money for a charity that focuses on kids and music.

"The generosity of the sponsors, the enthusiasm of the players, and the caliber of the prizes are just amazing!” Reitzas says. “My goal of creating a fun day where the people of our industry get to see each other face to face has far exceeded my expectations and I am humbled by the support for this event. Thanks everybody!"

Players of all skill levels are invited to register for the tournament and will be competing for an assortment of recording-related prizes donated by leading companies in the professional audio and music industry. Confirmed sponsors currently include Bricasti, Antares Audio Technologies, Audio-Technica, Blue Microphones, Brainworx, EastWest Sounds and Studios, FXpansion USA, Focusrite Novation, KRK, Millennia Media, Mojave Audio, RealTraps, SPL, Summit Audio, Telefunken Elektroakustik and Tonehunter.

The tournament buy-in is $120 with an optional $50 add-on at any time up through the third level of play. “Sit & Go” single-table mini-tournaments will also be available for players who are eliminated from the main event and would like a second or third chance to take another shot at winning something big.

Check-in begins on Sunday, August 1, at 12:15 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided. Additionally, an instruction table will be available 30 minutes prior to start time for players in need of a little brush-up.

The Recording Industry Poker Tournament is a KMD Productions event. For more information, contact Karen Dunn at 925/708-0307 or via e-mail at, or visit
