I’m proud to say that we get a lot of compliments on our website. Honestly, it’s built out of frustration from dealing with so many other venues and their inefficient websites during my years as a tour manager / booking agent. But take a closer look at our site here – it’s really just a tricked out WordPress page. In fact, many people use WordPress for their businesses and /or bands.
In my opinion, using a blog service for your bands website is the way to go. I believe this because blogger sites are already tied in with SEO’s (Search Engine Optimization) and secondary sites such as Flickr and ReverbNation are easy to utilize since coding options are provided.
Does this sort of thing confuse you?
Drop me a line a we’ll set up an appointment for you to come down to the club and I’ll show you how it all works. In the end, you’ll be able to maintain a professional and functional website that best promotes your band.
It’s so easy, even a drummer can do it.
Any band that has booked a show at The Grape Room in the last 6 months knows how much emphasis we put on them to utilizing ReverbNation. And if you’ve been a music conference in recent years, chances are you’ve had a conversation with co-founder / not-an-Eagles fan Lou Plaia. Walking the walk, you’ll find their schedule widget right on the front page of this website. - Anthony

Is the music age of the once-mighty MySpace coming to a close?
With the social-networking company on News Corp’s chopping block and half of the staff slashed last month, the site appears to be in a free fall.
In the fading light of the social network, there is a place musicians are turning to: Bandcamp. Taking up the DIY mantle, the company, launched in 2007, offers musicians the chance to sell and promote their tunes directly to the people. Founder Ethan Diamond describes the site as “a publishing platform for bands … your fifth, fully geeked-out Beatle — the one who keeps your very own website humming and lets you get back to making great music and building your fan base.”
Diamond’s mind-set may be just what independent musicians were looking for.
