Most of the bands here are Country bands. But, there are others that furnish good dance music as well.
Not everyone likes Country and who am I to say what is good for you. Therefore, we will publish for Country, Country Rock, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Western Swing, Swing, Big Band, etc. We will not advertise hip-hop, grunge or teenybopper music. Also the bands we publish in the Happenings section must be working professional bands that are getting paid a decent wage---not out cutting their fellow musicians throats just to get the job.
We personally take the time to hear these different bands when our Black River Falls Band is not working.
This list has dropped from 84 bands down to 41. Quite a drop in just a couple of years. If you want live dance bands to go out and have fun with, you need to support live music faithfully and often.
