Three ... two ... one ... LIFTOFF!!!
We have officially launched the Meet the Band blogspot, a site where all the members of our Meet the Band series can coexhist peacefully and be visited often by Mankato area music makers and music lovers who want to get to know a bit more about our music scene.
You see, The Free Press launched a series two years ago in which we do Q&As with various bands in the Mankato community. The idea was to show our readers that they don't have to go to the Twin Cities to hear great music. We've got it here. We've certainly proved that, as more than a dozen bands with diverse sounds have joined the Meet the Band family so far. We look forward to welcoming a whole lot more of them this year.
In the meantime, to catch up on the bands we've already introduced, head to http://www.meetthebandmankato.blogspot.com/ and look through pictures in our photo slideshow, read band Q&As, visit links to audio samples and watch a video or two of live performances.
