Top Ten Music Scene Resolutions Pt. 10
Posted Wednesday, January 27, at 11:09 PM

1 - Produce a better show It all starts with making better music live at the shows. When people come to see you make sure your sound is the best you can make it, make sure you are in tune, etc. It does not always cost huge amounts to have a good presentation. A lot of the presentation is just how you present it. Order, arrangement for the venue, volume, stage clothing, color scheme, lighting, mood of the room...

Top Ten Music Scene Resolutions Pt. 9
Posted Wednesday, January 27, at 10:57 PM

2 - Make a better product For our area product really is non-existant, and that really makes me sad. I feel like for me personally that I actually produce a lot of products, yet they go un noticed because local music lacks products as a whole. My CDs would always sell better in Joplin than in Nevada each month. ...

Top Ten Music Scene Resolutions Pt. 8
Posted Wednesday, January 27, at 10:38 PM

3- More publicity ALWAYS Ok so I know I have said this in almost all of the resolutions to some degree, which is exactly why it gets its very own. Publicity is super important for the music scene. On a local level the music scene and its participants have to get some sort of press and media attention in the form that can not be purchased. ...

4 - Let's all better network Seriously we all need to communicate more between each other. What I mean is we should all know what each other is doing, and if we don't we are failing. If we don't know the majority does not know. We are the internal sales people for our big company. ...

Top Ten Music Scene Resolutions Pt. 6
Posted Wednesday, January 27, at 9:56 PM

5 - Make sure to buy the album This is a resolution that goes across the board to all of us music fans. We need to remember that it is hard for Ozzy Osborne to sell music the same as it is hard for me, and you, the songwriters, and bands, to sell our tunes. Every one needs financial support to sustain, and as does our music scene...

Top Ten Music Scene Resolutions Pt. 5
Posted Wednesday, January 27, at 8:48 PM

6 - Think about the audience I know we all have the audience in mind when we are getting ready, and performing for them, but we don't think about them enough. This year all the performers in the area need to think more about our audience in the area as a whole. We all represent the live music around here so a bad experience will affect all of our overall reputations, so lets all put it in our minds to make a better experience for our audience with ways to improve...
