About MNO Chicago

A clear sign of the times are empty clubs that once rocked. Bands now have to get used to repeatedly playing to the club staff because more and more people are staying home. Face it, it is easier to stay home!

As a band alone we are being defeated; as musicians united together we can make the local scene what it used to be.

And the effort is easy, inexpensive and within all of our command.

MNO Database Selection Process

How i original built the MLM database for MNO Chicago:

The selection process went like this. I did a search on a few websites and looked at which one had a more diverse, yet complete list of bands. I performed my due diligence (too many years in the legal industry) and checked ALL of the websites. I looked at who site was working, which band is currently in circulation, and who had a standard (non-embedded) email address. I copied the address and the band name and built a database of addresses not governed by anything but alphabetic order. Your status in the local scene was not a factor, the quality or type of site was not a factor. What I did pass on was the MySpace sites. Only because an average fan would not have access to them without building an account.

For the email you have received I built the message first. Then I added my database of address and hid them for your collective privacy. It is not a matter of advertising to each other, nor does it matter what band I am in. Though if you know how, you can find me. I will report, a few bands were disbanding because of low turn out. I also recently found out that clubs are going karaoke/DJ because the bands could not guarantee a decent turnout. And now we are full circle on this subject.

Here is the promise...I will not sell your email address. So don't ask!
