Local Music - The Bands 

by Mike Corrigan


Here they are, the men and women of the local music scene, the ones willing to invest time and effort to provide the rest of us slackers with entertainment that's fresh, live and homegrown. Support them as you would any local small business. They're doing it out of love. They're doing it for you.


The goal here is to give us all an impression of what's happening out there, who's happening out there and in which direction we might go to satisfy that live rock, blues, jazz or folk itch. This document is by no means complete (as I'm sure we'll discover as soon as we publish). Despite our best efforts, it's inevitable that we will leave someone out. Thanks to all the local musicians who found time to yank our chain and special thanks to Spokanebands.com for providing us -- as well as the rest of the Inland Northwest -- with a terrific local scene resource. Check them out.


If you're a local musician/band/skiffle group and you're feeling left out -- it's nothing personal, honest -- get off your duff and let me know about it. Introduce yourself. It's easy. All you have do is call (325-0634 ext. 234). Or e-mail ([email protected]). Or fax (444-4772).
