Here's a chance to have your voice heard.Hi Calgary Musicians. The Calgary Arts Development Authority has a survey out and YOU should take it. It's a quick survey with a cool incentive, but most important it's a way to build a clear picture of what it is to be a working musician in Calgary today. This data will be used to create a report on our community and that report will get used in presentations to all levels of government. It's a fantastic chance to tell it like it is, the good, the bad, the strengths and the shortcomings. Click the link, take the survey!! calgaryartsprofessionals2017.questionpro.ca ...

Any bands looking to get some more experience, or hone their live skills, I would recommend checking this out.Original bands....time to get out and do more shows!!

The Axe Music Indy Band Challenge & Talent Search (AMIBC&TS) gives you the chance to do just that:)

This isn't just a one-shot "who's the best?" type competition. Everything about the AMIBC&TS: our format (with constructive feedback from the judges during playoff rounds), the prizes (gear/cash, recording time, rehearsal time, etc), the opportunity for paid weekend gigs, is geared towards helping bands get to the next stage in their development.

Our participating bands have told us that being in the AMIBC&TS has helped them work out the bugs in their presentation, meet lots of new friends and contacts, and above all, they have had a great time making music and being themselves!!! With no pressure to conform to someone else's ideas of genre, appearance or musical taste.

So what are you waiting for?!? Act now while there's still a few spots left....

Must be of legal drinking age. Contact Roli Mack's Music (call or text 403-650-0997) or email: bandwarz@hotmail.com

In the search for better tone, Mike is the man. Learn from a guru.

Tone Talks with Mike WatsonJanuary 21, 2017, 12:00pmThe Asylum for ArtI greatly look forward to introducing all students to a new found (or deepend) sense and awareness of tone itself, wether it be critically listening to acoustic instruments for recording, dialing a tone from ANY amplifier in ANY room, figuring out which microphones to choose for the best tone possible, and how to adapt quickly and effectively live so that you always get the best possible sound from the monitors.

We’ll also be covering the alternating bass with thumb, that is the cornerstone to multiple folk styles, country, blues/delta/country-blues, which can be practiced anywhere on the neck, with almost any chord, which gives almost immediate freedom to play without the need of accompaniment.

Jarin, The guitar is beautiful and sounds good too! Thanks sooo much!😎

I got over the self doubt a couple weeks ago. I played a gig and the drummer, a player for 30 some years, told me I sucked and was getting worse as time went on. So no more doubt. Confirmation. So Yay!

Awesome Day 1. Loved seeing Shakey move up to the MainStage. JBT killed it, as always. Looking forward to seeing my friend Adam Cohen play MainStage today. Have fun Jarin!

Hold my beer and watch this cut!

Who needs a preamp that bad anymore? There are so many fantastic, less invasive options. Is that a GA8?
