Testimonials

Over the last thirty years, MVD has proven themselves as leaders in independent distribution. Here's what some of our trade partners are saying about us.

From artists and the press:

I trust MVD.

—Iggy Pop

Combining its industry experience with its strength in creating and maintaining relationships, MVD has formed alliances that allow it to create its own product.

—Billboard

We held out everything for working with you here... Works too well to not do it.

—Hardy Fox, The Residents

One of the best label arrangements an independent musician could dream to come across.

—Curt Kirkwood, The Meat Puppets

The music industry is scrambling these days to adapt to new technology, new business models and new music. While many companies have been created and thrive in this environment, MVD Entertainment, a distributor of music DVDs, CDs and collectible merchandise, has sustained profits after being in business for over 25 years.

Music Connection

Working with MVD was a creative dream come true. The team of people at this amazing company literally did everything they could to take what was initially supposed to be a simple live music DVD, and turn it into a 6 month production and editing odyssey. Working with MVD remains a high point of my creative career. They set the bar in terms of what is possible when you combine experience, talent, dedication, and extremely passionate people. Plus, they're really good at partying.

We are consistently and resoundingly trumped every month when the package from MVD arrives... Sure their name has all the panache of Acme Underpants, but what the company lacks in floss, they more than cover in taste.

I've been working with MVD for years, and they have been a pleasure to work with. My statements arrive on time and whenever I needed something done it was handled quickly and professionally... Great company!

—Carmine Appice

The record biz is full of assholes who don't care about music. The folks at MVD are different. They work with artists of every genre, style and era and run the most diverse label and distro anywhere. MVD is independent, old school and family run.

—Blag Dahlia, The Dwarves

There are very few companies that go beyond just being a business, especially in this industry. MVD (and all who work there) are this type...
