Posted Monday, December 2, at 1:57 PM

Nevada Missouri needs heroes when it comes down to the live music. People are needed at the live events to keep the musical economy going, and to keep the venues wanting to keep bringing live music back. We also need people that want to spread the word, and are enthusiastic about the music, people to spread the word about this very blog and the bands that get mentioned here. ...

Rain or Shine Music is There!
Posted Wednesday, June 19, at 6:43 PM

So far this season we have not had to cancel any of the Thursday events called "Music on the Square" in downtown Nevada despite the fact that there has been quite a bit of rain and late cold temperatures this year.

Music on the Square
Posted Thursday, March 28, at 4:51 PM

"So we thing that we're important and we think that we make sense", and I do too. "You'll always be waiting", at least that is how the "Cake" song goes anyways. "It can seem like you are living like you are having a real good time", and we are! Music surrounds us so much that it is at our disposal, and so readily available, so NOW it's time to go out and "Experience the Scene". ...

Music on the Home Front
Posted Friday, July 29, at 5:39 PM

As the music world for most musicians has its wicked way and the travesty comes to pass, most performing artists and bands eventually tour or travel to gig.
