I can’t express to you music lovers just how important it is to support your local talent. Without the support of us, many of these talented artists fall between the cracks and have nowhere to go.
Unfortunately, the music scene is losing another great local band because local venues just won’t open their doors and give musicians the exposure they deserve. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard Syracuse-area venue owners or managers tell a band that they couldn’t play there because they were from Oswego County. I just don’t see the logic in that. I mean seriously, several Syracuse bands are welcomed with open arms in other county venues. In my opinion, “You’re not from Syracuse” is a poor excuse.
With that being said, I’d like to say farewell to the amazing, talented group of guys from Loose Cannon. Hopefully things will turn around in the near future, and these bands that have had to call it quits will be able to rejoin the music scene. Until then, I beg all of you to get out there and support your local artists and voice your opinion to these venue owners/managers.
