IMSTA is pleased to announce that Tony Maserati will be delivering the Keynote Speech at the first IMSTA FESTA in Los Angeles. As a record producer and audio engineer, Tony has won a Grammy for his work on Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" and a Latin Grammy for Sergio Mendez's "Timeless". Tony is responsible for creating that larger than life sound coming out of New York City which dominated Hip Hop and R&B during the late 90's right up to today.

In 2011, Tony co-founded Mirrorball Entertainment which is a record label as well as a publishing and production company. We could not think of a better way to kick start IMSTA FESTA L.A on May 19th than to have this truly remarkable producer and engineer lead the way for the panels of industry "Heavy Hitters" that follow.

Tony's clients include:
Lady Gaga
Black Eyed Peas
R. Kelly
