I am the other co-founder of the Midwest Music Collective. The reason I wanted to help start something like this is that there is a lot of insanely good music in the Midwest, but there doesn’t seem a lot of outlets for people to hear about the smaller, more local bands. What I want to do is get those bands the attention they deserve. My passion for music really took hold when I worked for RUB at UW-Oshkosh helping set up shows and concerts. It was really cool to see how it gets done and how hard these local bands work. So, I will continue to try and do my best to help those bands succeed.
