It is extremely important to support your local music scene. The music venues rely heavily on bringing in enough revenue not only to stay in business, but also to have a place for local bands to perform shows. Without supporting these clubs and venues these places will disappear and the local music scene will be gone.
Did you know that most bands use their own hard earned money to pay for and produce their own albums? There is a lot of hard work that goes into practicing, writing, performing, and recording these records. Not to mention the hard work and dedication of the sound engineers. Most bands do not sell enough albums and songs to recoup the cost of making an album. In today’s digital age people seem to take advantage of listening to music on YouTube, Spotify, or Apple Music. Bands receive very little money if any at all from these streaming services.
This is why it is extremely important for you to do your part in helping to keep the local music in your community alive. Spend $9.99 for a CD. Or even buy a few songs for as little as .99 cents each. A little bit of support from the people goes a long way for these musicians. Helps to purchase guitars, drums, amps and other music equipment. It may help pay for practice spaces that have monthly rental fees. And also help record that next album or CD. Or even create a music video.
