January 10, 2018 UPDATE!! Announcing the addition of the Music Mates BLOG, as well as social networking pages in Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Please connect with us, share our posts, and contribute to the conversations. You can help spread the word that instrument-weilding musicians, live music, and Music Mates are STILL alive and well!
Plus, you can now support Music Mates financially by giving a tip and by purchasing your musical instrument supplies through our supplied links in the BLOG area. All of this is in anticipation and support of a total overhaul and updating of the Music Mates system this year!
Music Mates started as an off-line pet project in 1995 servicing only Colorado musicians and bands. We put ads in our local rag, the Westword, and musicians and bands would call us on the phone to give answers to our profile questions. We would manually write those profiles and then sell the list in a printed form for $9.95.
Today, Music Mates online reaches a national audience with more than 16,000 registered participants. We serve musicians seeking bands, bands seeking musicians, music instructors for hire and bands and solo performers available for hire and always love to receive testimonials that our system is working.
The addition of our voting script has given us a broader reach on search engines than ever before, but our only business is still to this day connecting musicians with those who need them.
The success of this program has always relied heavily on the people who use it. Tell your friends, people you work with, people you jam with that there is a free referral system available to them. Music Mates is 100% funded by sponsored advertisers.
In addition to connecting with us on social media outlets, you can also help by printing a Music Mates Flyer and hanging it in your favorite club, music store, restaurant, library or place of work. After all, the more people that you help bring to this system, the more Music Mates will help you.
