This website is about the live music in the Fayetteville/Cumberland county area of North Carolina. The focus will be the local/independent musicians in this area; however I will try to add all musicians who are making an appearance in the area to the calendar on this site. Hopefully it will lead to the community becoming more aware of the many, many musicians based here - some as good as, or better than, the nationals.

The proximity of Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base leads to a very diverse community in Fayetteville. Almost every country in the world is represented here and along with the people from those countries come the talents and cultures of their homelands. That influence is also evident in the local music scene. Almost every genre of music is represented here. Unfortunately most people have never heard of many of the bands that call Fayetteville home. Neither do people consider the fact that many of them are not looking for the 'big time' but just want their music to be heard. Hopefully this website will spread the word to some of the people who are indeed looking for live music without having to drive for miles to get there or having to pay the high price for the 'nationals'.

The site contains a calendar of scheduled performances and a page with photos/slideshows of each of the groups (that I know of) who live and perform in this area. Most of them also do out-of-town shows but those will not be included on the calendar at this time. Of course there is info about each of the venues who feature our local musicians - location, phone number, etc.

Please take a look around the site and come out to the venues for some great music - right in your own backyard.

Did I miss someone? If so, please email me at the address above.

Please take note - There is a forum on this site so that you can chat with other musicians. Please use it!! It is for you, not for me.
