Birmingham Free Press-Music on Facebook

There are numerous sources for information about music events in Alabama. Yes, MusicSceneAL.com is working to build an awareness, and we are hoping to become a primary source for you. And we ask that you please tell your friends about us. But at the same time, let’s face it: Nobody can cover all the bases all the time, including us!

It’s not about competition. I think it’s safe to say that most other information providers are trying to do the same thing we are trying to do. That is to promote music, artists, venues and festivals, in our case all across the state of Alabama. Yes, we have to pay the rent, but that’s not what we are thinking about in our strategy sessions. Goal number one is to help the people involved in music.

So you may have noticed that the title indicates that this article is about Birmingham Free Press – Music. I can try to explain what they are trying to accomplish, but the best way for you to understand that is to visit them at www.facebook.com/freepressmusic. Visit them often. And visit MusicSceneAL.com and other sites. But most importantly, visit the music venues and festivals. And support local Alabama music artists.

Here we go!

It’s a new year, and that means a fresh, new start. So here’s the deal with MuscicSceneAL: Starting today, we’ll update weekly with a story, an interview, or maybe a few paragraphs about something music related in Alabama. We might tell you about a really cool venue or an upcoming concert or festival. Maybe introduce you to an artist or band. Or it could be information about a new CD, or maybe some other music related product.

Got ideas? We want your input. Please share your thoughts and ideas. For a start, we’d like for you to take a look at the other pages on this site. Go over each page with a fine tooth comb, and if you see that some band, venue, festival or whatever is missing, please let us know so we can add them to the list. While you’re looking, you might just come across something interesting that you didn’t know about or maybe had not thought about in awhile.

So welcome aboard. Our hope is to provide information that will help to keep you informed about and entertained by the wonderful musical talent found in Alabama. And hopefully you’ll tell your friends!
