A Day In The Life of In2une’s Dave Lombardi

Dave Lombardi“I grew up in Montville, NJ… and just loved music! I loved DJing because it was a chance to turn people on to new music, and I loved to talk about music, and I realized that a big part of promotion was exactly that.” – Dave Lombardi

By Beatrix Danko

Dave started DJing at dorm and frat parties while at Rutgers, and eventually moved to the school pub and then to a couple local clubs. He also joined Garden State Record Pool and quickly became the point person for Alternative and Rock music, writing for the pool newsletter and helping the pool director track down the right records for members.

After graduating, his first job was as Head DJ for the 94th Bomb Group in Fairfield, NJ, and a couple of months later, as a way to build positive industry contacts, started his own record pool. He DJed at the China Club in NYC and at the Loop Lounge in Passaic Park, NJ.

Dave’s first label job was Club Promotion Manager for Island/4th & B’Way; he left there to start up an Alternative Radio Promotion division for Pellegrino Promotions; followed by almost 13 years at Warner Bros. in Burbank, starting as the Alt Radio Promotion Manager and eventually becoming National Director Promotion, Rock Radio. After WB, spent a few years at Arista as Senior Director of Rock and Alternative Promotion, and then moved to the Capitol Music Group and Astralwerks as Head of Promotion. Dave spent over 11 years there, becoming Head Of Promotion for Caroline, then a part of the Special Ops promo team, and finally VP of Promotion, for Caroline once again.

In June, Lombardi has joined the NEW YORK team at In2une Music as SVP Promotion of Rock Formats. (more…)

Goood morning everybody!  Hope you had a nice weekend.  Let’s get right to the chart.  A number of tracks are down this week because of holiday programming.  Many of these records will regain their bullets this week, so hold tight.  As John “Bluto” Blutowski from Animal House said, “Over?  Did you say over? Nothing is over until we decide it is.”  Moving into the #1 active rock slot this week, Red Hot Chili Peppers “Dark Necessities.”  Volbeat “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown” dropped to #2 after 9 weeks at #1.  #3 is Shinedown “Asking For It.”  At 4^, Chevelle “Joyride,” up 30 spins.  At 5, Ghost “From the Pinnacle to the Pit.” (more…)
