Ohio Music Forums
By Musicians, For Musicians!
Ohio Music Forums are sort of based on that old corkboard at the back of your favorite old school guitar shop…
Do you guys remember those corkboards at the guitar shops? We all used to go check them for our bands missing link (i.e. Band seeks drummer). We would hang flyers for our shows at them. We would look for recording studios through them. The beauty of it was they were free and everybody knew where they were. I will never forget being 17 years old and going to the guitar shop just to check my flyer to see if anyone had taken a number tag off of it. I would be stoked if a bunch of numbers had been swiped off of my flyer. Then I’d just sit back and wait for people to call me. Of course, that was a few years before the internet really made those boards obsolete. Or did it? Anyways…
I created the Ohio Music Forums so that all the musicians in or traveling through Ohio could have their say on all that's happening in the greater Ohio music scene. Like everything else on this site, they're designed to be music resources you guys can use to share information and learn about new places that you might not have already discovered. Let’s face it, as musicians, we travel to all these cities. We don’t just stay in our hometown. So wouldn’t it be nice if we could make some friends in all of them? A little inside perspective of a town you’ve never played? That’s what these forums are here for.
I've known since I started this site that eventually I wanted it to become a little more fluid so that it could better reflect how things change. Also to really be valuable for musicians, people need to be able to share information with each other. Everything from legendary music venues to epic recording studios to just sharing contact information with each other so that you can line-up shows to play together.
These forums are written by musicians, for musicians! Hope they help!
