(LIVE CHAT too!)

Are you a FAN of LIVE MUSIC, and want to find a place to find out about new or established bands in the Chicago area?

Are you in a BAND that needs some more exposure? (but really can't afford to promote it through normal chains of advertising?) 

Are you a PHOTOGRAPHER who likes to take pictures of bands?

Well, seems you have all come to the right place! 

Here is the place where bands can list their upcoming gigs, and fans can peruse the different bands to see if they like their style

Join us for fun and friendship, while having new taste experiences in MUSIC as well as revisiting old favorites...

Join up if you have an interest in music of any kind! We will explore many different types, learn some of the history and origins about where a particular style came from...

For Bands, Orchestras, LIVE MUSIC, people who love seeing bands, people who want to out and goof around singing karaoke...

We will hit it all at some point.

So, if you are musician, a photographer who wants to wants to work on their low-light photography skills or just plain likes to shoot bands -- join now!

If you are a supporter of Music in any and all of it's formats, stand up and shout for your favorite bands... (ok, perhaps polite clapping if it's chamber music lol) 


The band each gets a “page” to tell us about their style of music, ($15 application fee for a "Band" to join) the FANS can check out the “files” section to preview a bit of the music, and the people interested in photographing the bands can meet them here on this site, up front before they're trying to perform on stage.

Also a section where bands can call for new players, and musicians can list equipment for sale, or in search of.

Let me conclude by saying, WE ARE SOME OF THE FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE WHO ATTEND MEETUP EVENTS!!! Yes, you will feel included, yes you will be encouraged to join into the conversations... Yes, you will be introduced around....

*Please fill out your introduction, add a pic or two NO posting of .com, or any kind of links in your profile introduction or you will be removed from the group!


{BANDS: suggest you join meetup with the name of your group and an email address that is separate from your individual personal profile} 

And then go see the Bulletin Board under "Discussions" to see how you can promote your organization!
