A Smile for Everybody

“All City John” is a beautiful tribute,

Coming on the one-year anniversary of police officer John Reposa’s passing

John Reposa Jr. a 19-year veteran of the Providence Police Department, lost his life a year ago. The Jamestown native, known for his compassionate side, was widely admired among his colleagues, and his death sent family, friends, and fellow officers reeling. He was just 43. Hundreds attended the service to commemorate his life. “He was a great police officer,” they’d say to a man. “When the going got tough, he was always there to rely on.”   They also called him “All City John,” largely because, contrary to policy, he often crossed neighborhood lines to do his police work. “He would always cross the city and grab the bad guys,” said officer Ned Kemble (of Cranston).  Kemble was especially touched by Reposa’s life and death. So touched in fact, that, as an aspiring songwriter, he crafted his feelings for Reposa into a song. It’s called, appropriately, “All City John.”   “My experience with John was not personal,” he admits. “But the thing with John was whenever we met he’d greet me, and everyone else for that matter, with a handshake and a smile.”   It was that inimitable spirit that drove Kemble to write the song. “It was easy to take him into your heart,” he says. “During the process, I felt like it brought me closer to his spirit. It was a very powerful feeling.”   The song started out as a simple acoustic track, but then gained a life of its own. Those that heard it were moved by it, and they encouraged Ned to flesh it out, give it a real push. He petitioned his brother Mark T. Kemble’s help with the lyrics and gave it professional production at Stable Sound Studio. Sandra Hadamard executive produced and additional help came from drummer Vinny Pagano, producer and musician Steve Rizzo, bagpiper Torin Ryan, and many others.   “All City John” is a wonderful tribute, with a subtle melody, tasteful lyrics, and quiet strength, led by Kemble’s sung-spoken lyrics, which evoke early Dylan. The song also adds a uniquely personal sonic perspective to Reposa’s life: bagpipes. He was a founding member and drummer of the Providence Pipes and Drums Corps, so the presence of that sound adds an emotional touch to the composition.   The songwriting development and production process, which also includes a poignant, beautifully shot video, took an unexpected toll on Kemble. “John’s death was so universal,” he says. “We’ve all had losses, and John’s passing really made me think of all the losses I have had in my life.”   The song has also touched a universal nerve for police officers across the nation. Forces lose good, active off-duty officers all the time, in addition to the officers we often hear about that sacrifice their lives on the job.   Another reason Kemble wrote the song was because he thought it necessary to give the police department, and John himself, a relatable personality. “I wanted everyone to know that police officers are human. Most people have never been in our shoes, so they don’t know how difficult it is. They see us and think ‘authority.’ But there’s a human side there and we are all, like John, true members of the community. I wanted to show the human side of John.”   A fundraiser overseen by John’s sister Lorana Reposa Demedeiros raised over $10,000 for autism, and the song hopes to raise additional charitable funds for the National Autism Association. The video, which features Lorana and launches on YouTube Wednesday August 27, is as moving as the song itself. Ned hopes it will help spread the word about the life of a great police officer, “the guy that always greeted everyone with a smile.”

Mixed Media Services

Hard to believe it’s 30 years now I’ve enjoyed getting my clients connected with the right people. As a PR pro, taking my clients’ careers to the next level is my job, plain and simple, and I take that responsibility seriously. Making you look good is what it’s all about. From musicians, to movies, to charity events, I will help you achieve your goals.

Your relationship with Mixed Media will start with a contract that will be tailored towards your needs and the media outlets you wish to target.

During your contract with Mixed Media:

  • A carefully thought out campaign will be designed, including a press kit that will be sent out to the appropriate media outlets, whether they be national, local, or regional.
  • For musicians, there is tour support, backed by press promotion weeks in advance

Our always updated extensive database makes it possible for you to saturate the media that will gain you the best possible exposure for your mission. Our database consists of thousands of newspapers, radio/television stations, and online media both national and local to help us promote our clients.

Building strong relationships with our clients and the media is an important belief we have. Constant follow ups with the media helps build a positive professional relationship to help our clients now and in the future.

And as any smart PR professional knows, evaluation of our progress is so important. That is why we provide monthly progress reports for our clients, making it easier to keep track of progress and budget.

So let’s discuss your new project and explore the ways you can enjoy wider exposure for your talent and a louder message for your project!


Mixed Media issues a contract upon your approval of this proposal. Then media campaigns begin immediately. These campaigns can be geared towards any segment of the media you feel it’s critical to reach: national, regional, and local. There are also segments geared towards social media and online press. We make your presence felt wherever you think it’s necessary.


Our campaigns are conceived to suit your needs. For example, a new music release and a high-level national publicity campaign with a mailing quantity of 100 is about $3000. This media blitz includes a press release, postage, supplies, and follow up within a 6-8 week time frame. As we work this campaign together, I would encourage you to send me your Top 10 media outlets/targets. That way we can go after those aggressively.

Tour/Gig Support

For tour support, per show rates are negotiated. For example, CD release gigs in major markets might go for $1000 or so. For smaller shows in smaller markets, that price might be $500. Tours are negotiated.

In order to better project the cost of a show or a tour, we need complete gig info six weeks ahead of time, including: date, time, # of sets/length, opener, cover charge, street address with zip code, contact name and phone number. We like to kick start press promotion four weeks in advance of each show date, to be sure to get the word out. Our objective is to intensely penetrate each local market along the tour routing and to keep select national publications, trades, and directories informed.

Our database is super current, and when we hit up these media outlets, we draw from a list of thousands of newspapers, periodicals, and reputable freelancers. We keep regular contact with most print and online entertainment and music review editors, and we have solid contacts in TV, radio, social networking and blogs.

We provide effective tour-oriented/grass roots radio promotion, which includes arranging airplay, on-air interviews, and concert ticket giveaways with local stations along the tour route.

Here are some other things that can happen. Your ideas and suggestions are also welcome.

  • Radio:We can set up an Interview with local stations in the towns where you play
  • Press: We can submit a Press Release for newspapers and radio stations to pick-up
  • Promo/Follow up: Those that express an interest, we follow up with product, press releases, jpg photos, and phone calls.
  • Sponsorship/endorsements: Together, we arrive at a target list to solicit sponsorships, endorsements, recording contracts or other business agreements.
  • Charitable Solicitations: If you’d like to incorporate a charitable cause into the campaign, we can do that as well.


To raise general awareness, Mixed Media dispatches an initial mailing to national mags, specialty mags, general interest pubs, prestige national newspapers like “USA Today” and “The New York Times,” and more regional papers. Our goal is to secure critical reviews, mentions, and feature articles in as high profile media outlets as possible and maximizing photo and graphic reprinting of artist’s materials.


We can also help connect you with prominent national radio promotion to help track airplay. We handle national/tour-oriented promotion that includes arranging airplay, on-air interviews, and ticket giveaways with local stations along the tour route.

Web & Social Media, SEO saturation

We can help you connect online with Social Media Network analysis, network authoring, strategy consulting, redesign, execution/maintenance, custom page design, commenting campaigns, Facebook fan page creation/maintenance, ad buys, custom fan page tabs, Twitter Custom Page creation/use strategy. More information and rates available upon request.

The Music Industry

We are also able to assist in matching our clients with appropriate music industry contacts, including film/TV music supervisors, management, booking agents, music festivals, and endorsers.

As part of its service, Mixed Media provides detailed monthly progress reports. These reports enable Mixed Media and its clients to keep an eye on cost as well as assess progress/budgets.

I’m really looking forward to spending some time with you discussing your new project! The only way you’ll enjoy wider exposure for your music or a louder message for your project is to let a professional publicist handle it. If you feel like that’s what you need, please get in touch. We’ll be happy to explore the possibilities with you!
