Hand-point-nw-40x42 TRY THE TWO-QUESTION

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 Detroit

Detroit is a major center for music in The USA. The rich musical history of Detroit is due in part to the varied cultural background of the population who made Detroit their home in the early part of the 20th Century.

Several musical genres have developed in the Detroit area all having a significance on the National musical make up. Blues, Gospel and Jazz had a very movement in the 40’s & 50’s the passion of the musicians was matched by the enthusiasm of the music buying public, many stars and icons were made at this time.

Detroit is probably most famous for Motown, a record label which produced several hit records and made household name out of many of the artists signed to the label. R&B and Soul music was already well established in Detroit when Motown was formed in 1960, the following 20 years was a period of huge success. The music produced by Motown played a big part in helping racial harmony, maybe an unintentional side effect, but the music performed by black artists, R&B and Soul with Pop overtones, was very popular with white audiences of the day helping create a crossover success that has never been matched since.

There have been many successful groups to come out of Detroit in both Pop and Rock from the 60’s onwards. The Pop and Rock fraternity continually updating and reinventing itself and always at the forefront of the music scene on a National Front.

The Techno music scene was began in Detroit and is as popular today as it ever was.

Live music venues in Detroit

Live music is still as important to Detroit as it has always been, however some prominent local industry personnel believe that the City is missing a ‘trick’ in not having an area of the City that is synonymous with music in the same way other US Cities have for example Beale Street in Memphis, Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Times Square in New York or The Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. This can be argued as a good or bad point but the proof is quite evident that the whole City of Detroit is a Music City, the history and the present output speaks for itself.
