Black Toast Music Announces Latest Film/TV/Ad Placements, including “Arthur,” National Domino’s Pizza Campaign and Numerous TV Series

Chatsworth, CA, March 30, 2011—Prominent independent music publisher/production music library Black Toast Music and its CEO/owner/founder Bob Mair (pictured at right) have announced the company’s latest music placements in the areas of feature films, advertising and TV.

Black Toast has placed a piece of instrumental jazz music, entitled “A Flapper On Broadway,� in the new, upcoming Warner Bros. comedy film, “Arthur� starring Russell Brand. The song is a fun, upbeat, 20’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, “Blue Ridge Mountain Home,� is prominently featured in the “Tomato� ad in which a Dominos “Test Group� is taken to the Dominos farm to

see where the tomatoes are grown for the authentic Dominos’ Pizza Sauce. The song is a traditional sounding instrumental blue grass song perfect for creating the “down-home� feel of the farm. The company has also supplied music to a variety of Internet and other TV commercials including those for Microsoft, Bally’s Fitness, and American Eagle Outfitters.

The new NBC comedy “Friends With Benefits� and the A&E show “Breakout Kings� have both already begun using Black Toast’s music for their first seasons, as has the new CBS cop drama “Blue Bloods,� and two new Fox series, “The Chicago Code� and “Raising Hope�. “Black Toast is excited to play a part of all of these great new shows,� Mair said.

Additionally, HBO’s “True Blood,� Season Four, has once again come to Black Toast Music for songs from the company’s catalogue. The hit series has been integrating music from Black Toast since its launch, and has regularly included the company’s songs. Other high profile HBO series also turn to Black Toast for their music needs, including “Treme,� and the animated hit, “The Life and Times of Tim.� Showtime’s “Dexter� 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 “Glenn Martin, DDS� (created by Michael Eisner’s company Tornante) which airs on Nick @ Nite.
