Way back in 2014, the founder of MusiciansConnect.net was struggling to connect with musicians. Websites like Craigslist and Bandmix just weren't working. The musicians on Craigslist seemed to put very little effort into their posts, and the spam and scams were off-putting. Bandmix on the other hand, while offering better quality musician profiles than Craigslist, seemed promising until trying to actually contact a musician. Evidently, "free to join" didn't necessarily mean "free to use" and unfettered communication with a musician required a credit card payment.
Given these frustrations, 9 years ago, he set out to create the humble MusiciansConnect.net website with the idea of offering a truly free musician service that raised the bar on the quality of musician profiles while being a pleasure to use. To help offset hosting and service costs, limited paid advertisements were added. This website started as a labor of love and a hobby, and that remains true to this day. We sincerely hope you find it useful and enjoy the experience. We love your feedback (good and bad) and ideas for new features or improvements. Thanks for visiting and good luck in your musician search!
Below are some stories and content from around the web on the challenges of connecting with musicians. Some made us laugh, some made us cry, but all of them made us feel proud and grateful for our little creation called Musicians Connect.
