Music hubs

    Is anyone interested in reading them? I haven't found very many on the subject, so I have to assume that there is little to no demand for them.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    can I get a definition on what exactly a "Music Hub" would include?

    Depends on the writers, really. What does an Entertainment Hub include?

    I'm inclined to drag underground bands kicking and screaming into the sunlight. Others might choose to discuss the merits of various amps.

    Sounds good to me!  As long as it falls within HubPages standards (which is not hard to do) then I don't forsee a problem....might actually be rather fruitful.  For example, there is a side project that Nikki Sixx did called "58 - Diet for a New America" in 2000.  However, there is so little information about it that it might as well have never happened.  So, Hub away, my friend, have fun, I'm sure there will be someone out there that wants to know what you know!

    Thanks for the support. <3 I just don't see any demand for it. Does anyone listen to rock anymore?

    I DO!!!  And obviously theres still a large following that does because shows like Motley Crue still sell huge amounts of tickets and albums, so I'd say that qualifies as a yes!!!

    Ah, but Crue is old school rock and roll! There are very very few bands of that kind today. And I'm pretty sure I know most of them. tongue I posted my first hub on the subject.

    Here's hoping for some positive feedback!

    Perhaps a good way to start is to pick a city and or state, or a band of your choice, and write a hub on them....Musical style, biography, etc.  Perhaps include some pictures of the band, and a music clip or video, maybe even a "tour" chart (i.e. the dates, times, and locations they will be playing local venues).  Many underground or small time bands are appreciative of any and all publicity, so they may even grant you an exclusive interview if you explain what you are about.  If you would like a starting point, I have recently moved and would love to hear about bands or artists in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area of Minnesota!

    A sugestion, do a gig guide for your favourite group and see what sort of comments you generate. Include Bios on the members and tour details.

    I have a number of hubs on music and I get a good amount of traffic from all of them.  My Woodstock 09 hub gets an unbelievable amount of traffic each day.

      Wow, that Woodstock 2009 Hub is definitely a good one. It's getting great search traffic because it's well-written, authoritative and based on a topic that gave you some room to rank. Nice work, Adam. smile

      The great thing about writing on HubPages is that you can literally write on any topic, so if you like music, then by all means write about that. It's not so much what you write about, but how you write about it and what specific part of it you cover.

      For instance, if you write about Guns 'n Roses, then it might be hard to rank and get traffic considering that there are like 50,000,000,000 other pieces of well-written about the same subject out there.

      But, if you do a little bit of research and and come up with more niche topics like:

      Reasons Why Guns 'n Roses Broke Up
      10 Most Populsr Guns 'n Roses Songs And Lyrics
      History Of Axl Rose

      ...then you should be good.

      Just make sure that they're filled with good content, informative and fun to read and you'll be just fine with your music Hubs.

    I could say start in New York...the Los Angeles scene is also ripe. That is for indie rock though. I'd love to read/hear more from the Twin Cities as well!
