A Fundraiser Benefit For Lisa Medina Saturday, January 16th 2010

2010-01-06 19:29:28

Lisa Medina Fundraiser Jan. 16 American-Polish Century Club Sterling HeightsWe just got this from Suzie Ferro of Radiocraft and wanted to repost it as soon as possible:

"Well, I've never planned a fundraiser before, but I'm giving it my best (along with the help of the entire Alcini Family & some incredible friends - many thanks!!) - & with very little time. Please see the attached flyer advertising the fundraiser I am planning for my friend Lisa Medina. Please read her story - it is both heartbreaking & uplifting. I hope many of you can come - she is a worthy cause! And hey - it will be fun!! Every day, new things are added to the event, but this is what I have up to this point. "

You Will Never Get a Record Deal
by: wiki
2008-02-10 00:00:00

music & moneyAccording to an article by Bruce Warila over at UnsprungMedia.com, the days of landing a major label record deal by being "discovered" by an A&R rep and given a big, fat cash advance are 'dead over.'  Record companies, like a lot of companies in Michigan these days, are slashing their payrolls of dead wood, reorganizing and re-investing. In the case of EMI, that means 1500 to 2000 jobs are done - over.  That means indie bands will also have to re-think their strategies.  Warila argues that they need to forget about finding a "deal" and start looking to attract investment - just like any other business.  Click "read more" below for a links to three articles about investrment strategies for Indie bands.

Iron Cowgirl - we beg your apologies
by: Mitch
2016-02-04 22:09:36

Way back in June of last year, Iron Cowgirl Missy Covill submitted a gigantic biography while nobody (a'hem) was here manning the php. So I thought I'd give you all the links you could ever want for this fine Southern Rock artist from Napoleon, MI. It's the least I can do - which is what I usually do.

STIT is
by: ace924
2006-12-11 21:54:23

STIT was originally formed in 1989. They had a pending deal with CBS that unfortunatly fell through. They played the Bar Scene till 1991 and eventually called it quits. In the spring of 2006, STIT was discovered by RETROSPECT RECORDS out of Las Vegas off a local website thanks to a good friend Dave Hess. RETROSPECT wanted to release a 1990 recording. But instead they decided to reform and record some never performed or recorded songs they had written. With that they have produced, STIT, "BACKWARDS". Click "read more" below.

The urban legend of a cardboard double bass that plays well and sounds wonderfuL has proven to exist! Soon, i'll have a kit available that comes complete with a box of crayons (some assembly required). It's fun to do the impossible.

2012-11-20 04:10:40

These Curious ThoughtsSome say long-distance relationships never work, but Sean Dunlop of Detroit and James Radford of the UK have proven that giving your partner some space, in this case an entire ocean's worth, can be the key to a successful collaboration. Since 2004, the pair have releases seven albums, four of which are currently available on iTunes as their latest project, "These Curious Thoughts". The pair have a new EP titled "What Is It And How Did It Get In There?"

Happy Independents (sic) Day
by: mitch
2013-07-05 13:54:53

Mitch's MindSo, for the fist time in a long time I sat down to write.  It happened to be Independence Day, July 4th 2013, sitting on my deck with the laptop - so I went off on that theme and it took on a life of its own.

It's kind of a muddled piece about being "Independent" and what that means in the context of America, what it means for MichiganBands.com, and what it means for the fledging music "scene" out there - whatever that is.

It ends with kind of a positive affirmation about how we need each other, despite the ability of each and every one of us to sit at home within the comfort of our own virtual world and do it all ourselves.

Music Review: The Lion Of Judah Hath Prevailed; The Process Meet Ghetto Priest
by: mitch
2011-05-01 10:40:00

"The Lion Of Judah Hath Prevailed; The Process Meets Ghetto Priest" is a seven-track EP from the Saginaw, Mi based roots-reggae rockers, five of which are alternate mixes of the title track by London reggae artists and producers Congo Natty and Adrian Sherwood, and American artists and producers Skip "Little Axe" McDonald and David Harrow. The seventh "bonus" track is "Ghetto Life", a sneak-peek release from Ghetto Priests forthcoming record, "Sacred Ground" (On-U Sound Records 2011). Both songs are worthy additions to any reggae collection. Your DJ will know what to do with the rest.

The Process will be appearing for their second release party Saturday, May 7th @ The Elbow Room in Ypsilanti. The show starts @ 9:00pm.

John Ludi Gets Praise from Pluto
by: PlutoRadio
2010-09-18 08:31:03

John LudiJohn Ludi allows us to use his material on our eclectic musician minded radio stream...  Pluto Radio is a rock, blues, trip-hop, alternative country cross over, electric cowboy hippie thing, plutoradio.com.

Feedback from our listeners indicate John Ludi's music is lyrical, intelligent, insightful as well as melodic.  Between the Quiet Earth Orchestra and music that he has produced under his own name, and/or The Soft war, Mr. Ludi's music has helped us build an interesting international fan base with a true appreciation for the many cross-over musical styles which are commonly associated with rock and roll.  I've been quoted as saying John Ludi has Bowie's voice - only better.  His voice, along with the musical insight of any memorable early 70's progressive rocker, gives Mr. Ludi's music (and words) a understated ying/yang eloquence which tends to reveal the fragility of the human heart along with the hidden character of our souls.

Pluto Radio is an advocate of the unsung musician, therefore, we suggest that anyone who enjoys progressive, lyrical vibe look John up and give his sound a listen…  John Ludi at johnludi.com  Good to see Mr. Ludi on this website, Michigan Bands freakin' rock!

My best from the great American desert.

On The Road with John Ludi's Mics Across America
by: Mitch
2016-02-09 06:43:15

 John LudiSo you may or may not remember John Ludi, a sort of progressive troubadour bearing songs for the coming apocalpse. No? You can check out a record review of HERE.

He's long since moved on from Michigan, having bought a chunk of land in the deeps woods of Wisconsin, eschewing the most of the modern conveniences to live his life as Off-Grid-John.

Well, that was until he realized just how awful being sequestered in a yurt during winter in Wisconsin really is. 

So this year, he's decided to grab his guitar, load up the van and head out across the fruited plains to catch as many open mic nights as will carry him safely back home to Wisconsin in the spring.

You can follow all of his travels and trevails over at his YouTube Channel or if you'd like to sift through years and years of musical offerings as well, head over to http://www.johnludi.com

Fox Rocks Winner Announced and Questioned
by: chief editor
2007-07-21 10:15:01

Fox 2 Detroit just announced the winner of their My Fox Rocks battle of the bands. The Matt Austin Band has been chosen to open up for Def Leppard and Styx at DTE on Tuesday, July 24th. Austin beat out hundreds of local bands from the metro Detroit area including some of our favorites. Coincidentally (or not), it was also announced that The Matt Austin Band was chosen to compete in Simon Cowell's new Fox franchise "The Next Great American Band" - which leads this cynic to question the validity of the contest. I know there will probably be some "sour grapes" comments from the lucky winners, the Fox producers and even Austin's fans (we're certainly not saying they don't deserve the shot - sounds like a decent band), but do you believe the results of this particular contest were pre-determined as a local promotional vehicle for The Next Great American Band? Does it matter? Vote in our latest survey and please feel free to chime in with your comments below.

Could donations finance your next album? It worked for Jill Sobule.
by: webmaster

Jill Sobule asked her fans for help in financing her new album. Jill’s approach successfully raised all of the money she needed for the project through donations. There are lessons to be learned that could help finance your next project. Read on ...

Jill SobuleI was listening to Marketplace, a financial show, on Michigan Radio earlier this week and they did a feature on Jill Sobule.

Jill has had significant success over the years. Don Henley asked her to open for him on one of his solo tours. Her albums have been produced by notables such as Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson. Over her career she has released 7 albums with multiple labels (MCA, Atlantic, Artemis, Apple - The Beatles not the computer) and her songs have been included in numerous movies including Clueless (1995) and Mystery Men (1999).

Jill's most recent label, Artemis Records, folded leaving her in the position of finding another one. The record industry as a whole has been dealing with slumping sales for quite a while and the present state of the economy has only made things worse. Many labels are facing tough times and some are going under. That left her with few options. If she was going to continue making records she would have to take matters in her own hands.

Five Bands Rock the Michigan Theater, January 22
by: chcnetwork
2011-03-05 11:33:20



With a wind chill factor registering almost 20 below it may have been one of the coldest nights in six years for the Jackson, Michigan area, but for the residents of south-central Michigan, particularly those who like hard and driving rock, the five bands that provided talent at the Michigan Theater tonight raised temps as they really cooked on stage.

This bill featuring Michigan bands Neon Escape, Lifeline Revolution, Under The Vine, Fifth Way, and the headlining Pop Evil was organized by Tim Corser, head of Kings of Rock Entertainment.

Corser, 28, has been promoting rock bands in and around the Jackson area for the past eight years. Last year during the depths of Michigan's deepest recession, at a time when even the biggest promoters were taking a hit, he promoted 30 bands on three stages at what was called Rockapalooza.

He is all too aware that roller coaster effect that the music business has experienced over the past couple of years and speaks with an authority on this matter perhaps belying his age. Despite this, he is intrepid rock devotee and is determined to produce the best shows for the dollar, something much needed and surely appreciated in the Jackson area.

Feeling nostalgic last night, I decided to go over to the web archive last night and type in MichiganBands.com and was happy to see the old MB theme/design with all it's bright colors and it's wider and easier layout. it brought back memories of a time when MB was very popular and members were active every day. It was a time before MySpace was the

Radio Free Michigan No Longer Broadcasting
by: webmaster
2009-03-24 12:47:55

It would appear that Radio Free Michigan is no longer broadcasting. I've checked the site several times over the past couple of weeks and the stream is unavailable. I've received no response from an email sent to them through the contact form on their website which is still active, but the playlist on their site has not been updated.

Hopefully this is only a temporary interruption in service. The station focused exclusively on Michigan Indie music and was a great promotional tool for independent artists from this state

The owners of Radio Free Michigan have not posted any information regarding the interruption of broadcast on their website so any speculation as to the cause would be just that; speculation. We can only hope that they can resume broadcast in the near future.

Michigan Bands ran an article on Radio Free Michigan back in January giving kudos to the new Internet radio station. We will keep you posted if we hear anything.

MB Welcomes Sail
by: Mitch
2016-03-01 20:38:32

 Sail bandMichiganbands.com would like to welcome "Sail" as the latest addition to our CoverBands/RockVariety category. These former Youth Arts Battle Of The Bands winners will do just about any cover gig these days at the ripe old age of 20(!), at least according to their bio: 'Anniversaries, Bar / Bat Mitzvahs, Birthdays, Christenings, Corporate Events, Venues, Debutante Balls, Weddings, Engagement Parties, Graduations, Holiday Parties, LGBTQ Weddings / Ceremonies, Memorials, Sweet 16s'.  - and yet somehow they've managed to make "Music Connection's Magazine Hot Top 100 Unsigned Bands 2015".  Must be something more to this story.  You can also read a live review of Sail at The Cooley Lake Inn HERE.  - Mitch
