Will you feature my band on the site?
We feature bands that we like and bands that we think will be of interest to our visitors. If you want us to feature your band please fill out the form here with all your information and if we like what we hear we’ll feature you! We can’t guarantee that you will get featured but we listen to everything sent our way.
Will you review my bands CD?
The first thing is to answer a few quick questions. Is the CD a demo CD? We have a lot of CD’s to review and demo’s aren’t on our priority list. We do however like to listen to demos to help find rising artists. Has the CD been out for over 6 months? If it has, then the chance of us reviewing it is slim because we are focused on newer releases. If you didn’t answer yes to those questions then feel free to send it to us and we’ll do our best to review it. You can get our address on the contact page.
Does this site have an RSS feed?
Yes it does! And it’s really easy to read it if you use Safari or Firefox as your web browser. If you are using Safari 2.0 or higher you will see the blue RSS icon in the address bar when you visit the site.
