New York, NY (August 24, 2021) – HFA’s Rumblefish, the nation’s leading provider of music industry rights administration services, announced that it has renewed its long-standing agreement with AMI Entertainment, formerly operating as Rowe International, the world’s oldest jukebox manufacturer. Under this agreement, first signed in 2004, HFA will continue to provide its services to AMI in connection with licensing songs from participating music publishers for AMI’s secure digital jukebox network and supporting AMI’s data and royalty management in the United States.
“We are thrilled to extend to publishers this agreement with AMI and to continue to support AMI’s rights administration needs,” said Lauren Apolito, SVP of Strategy and Business Development of Rumblefish. “AMI and HFA have a long history together, and we hope to continue working together for at least another seventeen years.”
“We are very excited to be able to continue this long-standing relationship with HFA’s Rumblefish,” said Amy Zolikoff, AMI’s Manager of Licensing, Royalties & Content. “As our user base continues to grow, we are thankful to be working with a nationally respected organization like HFA to help us broaden the selection of music available across the AMI network.
AMI’s digital platform allows patrons of bars, pubs or restaurants to browse music recordings and music videos by title, artist, album or genre using search and navigation tools on the jukebox or via the AMI Music mobile app and to play the patron’s selection on the jukebox for a fee. All selections and payments are tracked by AMI’s central music servers.
