 Wrenfields release ''Seconds''
Three-time Detroit Music Award Winners, The Wrenfields, have released the follow-up to their 2001 smash debut entitled, "Seconds." The Dearborn based quintet's sophomore release delves deeper into the rocky roots of country, adding instruments such as banjo and mountain dulcimer, compliments of David Wolfenberger from the Harmony Ridge Creek Dippers. As with their critically acclaimed debut, "Seconds" was produced by Ohio native Tyler Brown. Look for a review of this release as soon as Mitch gets caught up on his writing.

 Just In Time For Halloween

Once again, The Hungry Ghost (Blake Chen) tops the Michigan Charts at MP3.com. Back in September The Ghost was bumped out of the top spot by a Greenwheel (Creed?), a misplaced national that is actually from St. Charles, Missouri and somehow wound up on the Michigan charts. The song, "Heaven Is A Dark Place", managed to maintain a top 5 position on the chart in spite of the competition. Now the song is firmly planted at number one.

Click read more below to find out who else is on the charts.  You might be surprised.

 Survey Results: Most Effective Marketing
According to our last survey, "What's your most effective marketing technique?", posters/flyers and word of mouth are still the favored method of reaching an audience (33.33% and 31.25% respectively). E-mail and giveaways are still a good deal behind those methods (12.5% and 10.42% respectively). Street Teams and Press Coverage are tied with a paltry 4.17% (so why do I bother?) and direct mail and other methods of marketing tie for last with 2.08%. Nobody chose benefit concerts or table tee-pees as their most effective marekting technique.
Our next survey asks, "What's Your Connection?" speed so we might better be able to serve you in the future. We've shyed away from fancy graphics on this site with the belief that most of you dial-up to Michiganbands.com. Let's see where we end up. Oh, and click "Read More" below for words of wisdom from our average survey respondent.

 Random Acts of Music: Breaktime Billiards in Novi
Since Breaktime Billiards recently added more live music to an area that desperately needs it (Wixom), we thought we'd keep plugging that fact in hopes of bringing them more business. Last night I noticed that Dearborn natives Pat Brennan and Robb Roy have been added to the live roster for November. If you live anywhere near the Novi/Wixom Area, this will be the perfect opportunity to see how musically spoiled Dearbornites have been for years. Click "Read More" to find out who we targeted for a Michiganbands.com Random Act of Music.
