You have one life to live, do what you love. And if what you love is creating vinyl records that light-up, have glow-in-the-dark dinosaurs, or even liquid inside, call yourself Romanus Records and sell out of your first innovate record design in two minutes. Chris Banta grew up with music and turned that passion into his record label and record making business, Romanus Records, and his own band, Brother 'o Brother. Prepare to laugh out loud with us as Chris shares how he went from watching Macho Man and Rick Flair promos while writing grants to selling his records to 25 different countries. Get a glimpse into how Chris runs his internationally recognized unconventional record business out of his basement, learn how bands are managed from a business perspective and how his record business exploded because Classic Rock Magazine happened to release a front page article about Romanus Records on the same day Chris Cornell died. Intrigued yet? Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you this week with Chris Banta of Romanus Records!
