Thank you for the kind words…
Several people have told me they loved my article in June Issue, even calling it “my best work’ because I had the balls to tell the truth about how things are in this city’s music scene regarding bands not having to be good anymore IF they have a draw, or are popular.
Money talk’s and the good musicians walk. It’s a crappy system and I hope to change that in the near future. In my many years of promoting original talent, sure you want the popular bands that draw people in, BUT it cannot always be that way.
Sometimes you have to look ahead to things that could be!!!
Discovering new talent was always a joy to me when I was; booking Toy Tiger shows, and a Local Music DJ on 100.5 The Fox. I gave numerous bands a chance to be heard…
I booked Element H when no one knew who they were, now they are HEAVEN HILL, the top rock band in town. I booked Plan Of Man when no one knew who they were, now they are The Villebillies. These are two examples of how I roll.
Everyone needs a f**king chance to be heard. It should not matter how pretty you are, or if you can only bring 30 people to your show.
If you play great music then you should get the chance to shine~!!!
Unfortunately, some work needs to be done to fix this problem in our fair city.
I hope my words do something to help the good musicians being left out.
