Hi fellow band heads,

First let me thank everyone for supporting the site in it's first month of existence. Over the last few weeks over 60 bands and fans have posted to the site and things are starting to pick up quite a bit.

Site Update
For anyone that got stuck with their login name on their profile, you can now edit your profile name. Login to the site and go to the control panel. Click on the profile button and choose Profile Info to change your Profile name. "My Cool Band" looks better than "mycoolband" now doesn't it.

Site Feature Spotlight
Every band page has a store available where you can sell your CDs and swag. To use this feature login to the site and go to control panel. Click on the store button then choose Create Item. Enter the details and price and upload a picture if you want. Don't forget to enter your PayPal email address so you can get paid for the item. 100% of any store sale goes directly to you. Of course now you have to get the item to the customer.

The Muse
Myspace isn't what it used to be and I suspect the big money boys are going to bail on that site some day since it isn't bringing in the big bucks as predicted. Facebook is cool, but it wasn't really built for marketing bands since no one except facebook members can view your stuff without logging in.

With the economy the way it is in this state I think we need to take care of our own. That is the main reason we decided to put this site together so artists from Michigan would have a place to promote their craft.

Let's spread the word and see what we can do.

Thanks again and keep supporting Michigan music.
