Chatsworth, CA, March 30, 2011â€”Prominent independent music publisher/production music library Black Toast Music and its CEO/owner/founder Bob Mair (pictured at right) have announced the companyâ€™s latest music placements in the areas of feature films, advertising and TV.
Black Toast has placed a piece of instrumental jazz music, entitled â€œA Flapper On Broadway,â€? in the new, upcoming Warner Bros. comedy film, â€œArthurâ€? starring Russell Brand. The song is a fun, upbeat, 20â€™s style jazz piece performed by String Planet, reminiscent of the music heard in many films by Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy.
In the area of advertising, Black Toast has contributed music to a recently launched advertising campaign promoting Dominos Pizza. The song, â€œBlue Ridge Mountain Home,â€? is prominently featured in the â€œTomatoâ€? ad in which a Dominos â€œTest Groupâ€? is taken to the Dominos farm to see where the tomatoes are grown for the authentic Dominosâ€™ Pizza Sauce. The song is a traditional sounding instrumental blue grass song perfect for creating the â€œdown-homeâ€? feel of the farm. The company has also supplied music to a variety of Internet and other TV commercials including those for Microsoft, Ballyâ€™s Fitness, and American Eagle Outfitters.
The new NBC comedy â€œFriends With Benefitsâ€? and the A&E show â€œBreakout Kingsâ€? have both already begun using Black Toastâ€™s music for their first seasons, as has the new CBS cop drama â€œBlue Bloods,â€? and two new Fox series, â€œThe Chicago Codeâ€? and â€œRaising Hopeâ€?. â€œBlack Toast is excited to play a part of all of these great new shows,â€? Mair said.
Additionally, HBOâ€™s â€œTrue Blood,â€? Season Four, has once again come to Black Toast Music for songs from the companyâ€™s catalogue. The hit series has been integrating music from Black Toast since its launch, and has regularly included the companyâ€™s songs. Other high profile HBO series also turn to Black Toast for their music needs, including â€œTreme,â€? and the animated hit, â€œThe Life and Times of Tim.â€? Showtimeâ€™s â€œDexterâ€? also uses music from the Black Toast Music catalog on a regular basis.
Black Toast Music has also contributed the main title theme (composed by Bob Mair and David Feldstein) for the hit Nickelodeon animated series â€œGlenn Martin, DDSâ€? (created by Michael Eisnerâ€™s company Tornante) which airs on Nick @ Nite.
