About This Site and Why We Created It

We'd Rather Be Listening

We love live music. Especially local live music. There's just something about the connection between musician and instrument, combined with the acoustics and visuals of a live performance that really soothes or stimulates the soul... depending on what you are in the mood for.

We believe in Huntsville and Madison - how unique and special this area is musically and culturally. Our goal is to grow the live music scene here, to promote experienced and new talent and to help grow the businesses and organizations that feature live music.

We created this website to make it much easier for everyone to find live music in the Rocket City.

Less time "Googling" and more time listening!
