Do YOU Have What It Takes to be a Tuned-In Band?!

  1. Are you currently signed with a major label?
  2. Has your last album been in the top 20?
  3. Have you performed to crowds larger than 5000?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, what the heck are you doing here! You don't need Tuned-In, you need a better agent.

We want Tuned-In to be the place for folks in the Hudson Valley, NY to go to read about their favorite local bands or to discover a new one. A place to showcase all the great musical talent in the area from classical to alternative. Whether you're a club band, a high school marching band, or a one musician show, we think folks will enjoy learning more about you.

Here's How


What Can We Offer You?

If you're strapped for cash or just starting out, list your band in our free listing area. Your band name will be listed with all the Tuned-In bands, and you can supply a contact so potential clients can reach you. To see what these listings look like click here. To submit your free listing click here.

If you're interested in real value though, read on and discover what more we can do for you.

We'll create a totally custom-built home page for you that reflects the mood and feeling of you and your music. The page will include your logo and/or pictures, all the text you want, your schedule of appearances (linked to Musi-cal), and up to five minutes of your audio demos. The audio demos are a great way for prospective clients to hear what you have to offer.

As a Tuned-In band, you'll be featured on our home page on a frequent rotating basis, in our "Meet the Bands" page aimed at those looking for a band for their club or event, and, if you have an album, in our "Hudson Valley Albums" page. So you can evaluate how successful your page is, we'll provide a counter of the number of hits your page receives. We'll also provide your visitors with the opportunity to get on an email or U.S. postal mailing list for you. You can use this list to send mailings of your upcoming events (or we can do that for a small extra fee).

If you'd like to showcase more than 5 minutes of audio demos, then you can purchase as many extra minutes as you like.


What Will it Cost?

The table below outlines our rates. We know that very few people are getting rich in the music business and so we've tried to keep our charges as low as we can and still pay our fixed costs and have a bit left over for growth and to subsidize some special projects. (See Funding for more info).

Special offer for Non-Profit Groups:
If you're a community-oriented group (school band, church group, theatre company, service/social club) with a reasonably small (see below) annual budget,
contact us-- we'll do our best to provide you with a page at no charge or at cost depending on your requirements. We're also receptive to an exchange of talent/services in lieu of payment. For example, perhaps you could spare a couple of your show tickets or albums or gift certificates exchangeable for your service? We'd use them as prizes to attract more visitors to the site or keep them for our own personal use.

definition of reasonably small: Actually, we're not sure yet. We know that there are some non-profit groups who can barely fund their activities and others whose advertising budget alone is larger than the total yearly costs of this site. Let's start by relying on your assessment of what your organization can afford.
