New Music November!

1 Nov



Wow, 2013 flew by really fast. I missed a lot of days in October due to the baseball playoffs with our website being based in the St. Louis area most of us Bandbookers are Cards fans and October means playoffs. Unfortunately, things didn’t end well so congrats Bosox and your funny substances in your glove, your ugly facial hair, your bullpen cop, and to Big Papi who was hitting everything, even pitches thrown to other batters. We’ll meet again, and this time… Anyway, let’s check out some new music. And, as always please check out especially if you are in a band, a musician, are a DJ, club owner, venue or venue owner, promoter, or in the music biz in general, because we have the tools you need for success. And, for all the music fans please check back here often as we add new music quite often.
