HOUSTON, TX. (www.genekelton.com) - Why would TOUCHTUNES MUSIC CORPORATION, the largest digital download jukebox music service in the world, sign an 'independent' TEXAS BLUES/ROCK BAND with a song called 'MY BABY DON'T WEAR NO PANTIES'?
UNDENIABLE JUKEBOX HITS GETS BAND SIGNED!
When Mean Gene Kelton's salacious, hip-grinding, blues/rock song, 'My Baby Don't Wear No Panties', exploded out of traditional CD jukeboxes in Texas, it became an instant jukebox hit! It gets played 20 to 30 times a day on over 500 traditional CD jukeboxes across Southeast Texas! Every time the song plays, it seems to have a hypnotic effect on women motivating them to dance on the tables and sometimes fling a pair of panties into the applauding crowd. The crowd loves the show and club owners insist that the song is great for business and is a top money maker on their jukebox!
Fact is: Mean Gene Kelton has several undeniable jukebox hits currently receiving nationwide radio airplay including the hilarious 'Texas City Dyke', and 'My Blow Up Lover', the nostalgic, 50's styled 'Cruisin' Texas Avenue' and the houserocking tribute to the full figured woman: 'Big Legged Mama'. The heart-rendering 'Tears On My Guitar' has been known to make even the most hardened Biker cry. Kelton's high-energy southern rocker, 'I Love My Job' recently became his seventh No 1 song on the Texas Top 40 Charts. 'My Baby Don't Wear No Panties', which Music News Magazine calls, 'the greatest party song ever written' hit No 1 eight times in a row!
When TouchTunes Digital Download Jukeboxes began to replace the old CD jukeboxes, Kelton's songs were not immediately available in the new cyber-system. Realizing a substantial loss of revenue, not to mention the decline of impromptu table dances, jukebox owner/operators were inundated with complaints from club owners about not being able to play – and party - to Kelton's music.
CLUB OWNER DEMANDS KELTON'S MUSIC ON TOUCHTUNES JUKEBOX
Larry McCartney, owner/manager of The Corner Pocket, a biker friendly establishment in Baytown, Texas told his jukebox man, John Issacks, owner of Bay Vending Company, 'if you can't put Kelton's music on the new TouchTunes Digital Jukebox, then bring the old CD jukebox back!' McCartney claims that every time Kelton's 'Panties Song' plays at The Corner Pocket, the ladies are encouraged to 'donate' a pair of panties to be pinned to the club's 'Panty Wall Of Fame'! Without Kelton's 'Panties Song' in the new digital download system, jukebox profits dropped and the raucous parties came to a screeching halt! McCartney was furious and customers threw a fit!
'Kelton's music is either No 1 or second only to Lynyrd Skynyrd or Stevie Ray Vaughan', says John Issacks, owner of Bay Vending in Baytown, Texas. Our customers demanded that we make Kelton's music available in our TouchTunes locations'.
Jay Coleman, with Play It Again Amusements in Houston, first contacted TouchTunes and insisted that TouchTunes add Kelton's music to their system because as he put it,' Kelton's music is a top player and we make a lot of money with his songs.'
TOUCHTUNES CORPORATION SEES GREEN!
By the time the popularity of Kelton's music was brought to the attention of TouchTunes music executives, Kelton had sold nearly one-million downloads through his own website. Realizing the money making potential, they looked past Kelton's 'independent artist' status and enthusiastically agreed to make Kelton's entire music catalog immediately available to over 17,000 TouchTunes locations across the country!
KELTON SEIZES VICTORY FOR INDEPENDENT ARTISTS
'Signing with TouchTunes is a major victory not just for me but for all independent artists', says Kelton. It's proof that the music industry is starting to recognize the potential of us independent artists. Thanks to companies like TouchTunes, and of course, our own websites, we no longer need to be on a major record label in order to sell a million CDs. People don't care about labels anyway! If they hear a song that they like, they will buy it!'
