The MaineStreet Band

Debut album, "Dime A Dozen"

Debut album, “Dime A Dozen”

Yes, I will admit…the bass player is a friend of mine.  That’s not the only reason I’m telling y’all about them, though.  The album is a nice listen and I can actually picture some of the stuff in the soundtrack of a movie (maybe even one of those tween/teen shows on the CW?).  Anyway, MaineStreet is a band of hardworking boys who want to entertain you with their music.  So, check them out below.  Unfortunately, they didn’t use Bandcamp, so I couldn’t just put a player right here…but the links are for Soundcloud and CD Baby…oh yeah, and their website.

Enjoy! I did.

Favorite Album of the Month- May 2012

Yes, the favorite song of the week has now become the favorite album of the month.  So, you’ll have to wait longer, but it’ll be worth it.  So here’s my first pick….Breathe by Adelante

Check it out for yourself…and remember, if you/your band would like to featured here you must have your stuff up on in order for me to consider it.  Why? Because I like them and their links are easy to embed, so there.

Sync Up 2012 Is Here!

Holy Cow!  Before I get into this, I must apologize to y’all for getting so behind with posting.  I started a regular job, and it took me a lot longer to get my schedule in order.  I hope to post at least once a week from now on, but if I don’t, please don’t hold it against me.


With that said…It’s SYNC UP time again!  It starts this Friday, April 27, 9:00 am to 12:30 pm @ New Orleans Museum of Art.

The Sync Up Conference is presented by the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and Foundation, Inc.  It runs every Friday and Saturday during Jazz Fest …and it’s FREE, but you do have to register.  There’s still time, just go to the Sync Up website and click on the “Register” button.  You can also download a pdf of this year’s program that has the conference schedule and bios/contact info for all the speakers.

Sadly, I won’t be able to attend this year, but I strongly urge y’all to go if you can swing it.  The info is always really relevant and useful to all musicians and music business people…indie or not.
