What's wrong with the old fashioned way?

Find musicians to collaborate with - it sounds easy, but it can be a long and difficult task. When you start a band or join a band, you will be forgiven for thinking that it’s almost impossible to find musicians with the right attitude, the right ability, the right gear, the right age, the right availability in the right genre - all in the right place!

Sourcing musicians for your studio recording can be just as difficult. To achieve a pro recording you have to make a band work - you need the right band mix. Countless sessions have not achieved their full potential simply because members of the band wanted different things - musicians wanted their own vision fulfilled.

Of course, when you’re looking for a band it’s hard enough to find a band, but bands looking for you are having the same problems!

The music industry has always suffered these problems - until now

Having an imperfect bandmix would seem to be ‘just the way it is’ with careers in music...but not any longer...
Whether you are starting a band or want to join a band, Musical Exchanges’ ground-breaking MX Recruit is for you. Discovering local bands, aiming for a professional recording career or trying to find a player available for a one-off gig it couldn't be easier!
And don’t forget - your own ad in Musical Exchanges' MX Recruit means that a band looking for you has a much better chance of finding you.
The service works like a dating site. It compares your profile against those placed by other advertisers and quickly provides a shortlist of the most compatible matches.

MX Pro-Tip!

Musical Exchanges - It’s where the music industry goes to network! When you place your MX Recruit ad you will also be a member of MX Network. You will be included in your nearest local and regional MX Network group so that you can keep on top of what’s happening in your area. You may find a player available here too! This presents another great opportunity to build music relationships - a massive step forward compared with placing a musicians classified ad!

Live music in Seattle

Today when Seattle is mentioned most people will think of Nirvana and the Seattle Grunge movement but Seattle’s music history goes much deeper than that. After world war 2 Seattle had quite a vibrant dance and jazz scene, this was partly helped by a rather open and tolerant police force who tolerated the after hours Jazz clubs that were spreading through the City. It was during this period that artists like Quincey Jones and Ray Charles began to make a name for themselves. A local law change in 1949 unfortunately did have an effect which did not help the Seattle nightlife and music scene which did go into a bit of a decline. The 60’s and into the 70’s Seattle music began to have a resurgence with a growing dance scene, some local bands began to have hit records.

Late 70’s and into the 80’s Seattle developed a punk scene which was short lived. Most music genres can be split into sub genres Rock music is one example, the coming together of the Hardcore and Metal artists created a further sub genre, Grunge can well and truly be said to have been invented in Seattle. With the help of local Seattle radio the new grunge bands were given airplay and soon became visible on the National scene and to be copied around the world.

Although the Grunge scene was really only a short affair becoming watered down and diluted with other influences. The Indie scene that was growing in popularity by the mid 90’s was also heavily promoted by the loyal Seattle radio stations which helped continue the tradition of hit making Seattle bands.

Seattle has every right to be proud of the major talent to come from the City, many artists coming from Seattle have gone on to find National and International success; Jimi Hendrix, Keith, Godchaux (Grateful Dead), Judy Collins, Kenny G, Queesryche, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains and Fleet Foxes.
