There is a "competition" going on between my band, River Knot, and me.
They are #1 on reverbnation for the Needmore, PA area, and #2 for Hagerstown, MD.
I was #1 in Needmore, now #2. (heck I'm the only musician here!) & #2 in Hagerstown, now #3.

As a result of this, we're trying to actually figure out how these ratings work & change.

If you have the time & inclination...would you visit the site, maybe listen to a song, and maybe "like" or "share"?

Thanks in advance....
Mick

The rating on Reverbnation is nonsense. I've been #23 in my town of 1,500 for years, and there are only three musicians here with CDs.

I know that "plays" count as do "visits".
"Fanning" requires you to create an account. Not hard to do, but why would someone bother unless they wanted a page?
I think you can "like" or "share" on FB or twitter. (I think you can also "follow")

Like I said, I'm not quite sure how all this works. Don't even know how helpful it is in promoting or gigging, but I imagine it can't hurt.

Thanks for taking the time!

Mick

Matt...I wouldn't have guessed you to be more than 1100 years old! LOL!
From what I can see, if there are a limited # in your area, they bring in acts from adjoining areas. River Knot, for instance is from Hagerstown. (50 miles away) The closest REAL city to where I live.

Hi Mick,
Great site! I love your music!

“There You Are” is my favorite, followed by “Back in my Arms Again” and “Moonlight”. What are you using for your sax sounds?

Hi Mario. Thanks for checking it out.
All of the saxes used are from the VL70m (physical modeling synth)with Matt's turbo chip.

ps the "Matt" just referenced here is not me.

As it happens, I do have a WX5 with a VL70 and I also swapped out the stock chip for the Patchman Turbo chip.

Hi Mick,

I am listening to your songs (as usual, I like what I hear). I also became a fan, since I already have a ReverbNation account.

Good luck!

Steve

IF it's set up fairly; clicking Play everyday will have much less weight than a new listener. Otherwise a guy could just play his own stuff over and over again. I would guess the IP address is used to determine new listeners.

Enjoy ruling your pond.
Then venture upstream into the nearest lake..
and have fun doing it.
