No Comment 16 Views

WaveGroup (www.wavegroup.com), who contributed to the original Guitar Hero and Rock Band games, today announced licensing agreements with major recording artists including renowned guitar virtuoso Steve Vai as well as acclaimed rock bands such as Widespread Panic, Reverend Horton Heat and Gov’t Mule, to distribute their music in Rock Band.

WaveGroup will work with the artists’ original recordings, transforming them into playable Rock Band tracks, then releasing the music through the Rock Band Network Music Store. WaveGroup brings years of experience in music game development to the Rock Band Network initiative, and is working closely with Harmonix Music Systems during the beta period to develop this new way of distributing music to the masses.

Will Littlejohn, President/CEO of WaveGroup commented, "We’re honored to be working with such amazing musicians, and bringing their music to RBN.  Our job is to make the music look and feel authentic in the Rock Band environment. As musicians ourselves, we go to great lengths to make the experience of playing these songs fun and engaging."

WaveGroup is currently working with the following artists as well as other well-known acts to be announced:

  • Steve Vai
  • Widespread Panic
  • Gov’t Mule
  • Reverend Horton Heat
  • Stroke 9
  • Galactic
  • Rebelution
  • Bif Naked
  • Assembly of Dust
  • Nick Gallant
  • Kid Beyond
  • RX Bandits
  • Jet Black Kiss
  • Doug Doppler
  • Austin Willacy
  • The Humans
  • Rain Dogs

That’s a long list and it will probably take some time until the tracks are ready but it is good to see the musicians themselves getting involved instead of just the record labels. Hopefully this will streamline some music licensing.
