At the annual meeting of the CBMS there was a new board elected. See who is who here.
Like every membership organization, we try to stay on top of the latest greatest tools and benefits that make the most sense for you-our members. And we have to do all of that within a budget. We launched a new website that we hope you will enjoy. The "old" site was chock ful of great information about the organization and the members that make up the organization. The site was also very well indexed--meaning that the search engines LOVED it-- and it always ranked high on the search results, which is good for all of us that have links to the site.
We have the same website address. We simply updated the look and feel of it, and added a few new features, hoping the connectivity helps put you in front of your customers-the people you need to book business. We look forward to your feedback. Please give us time to make adjustments as we move forward.
Though March Madness is usually reserved for basketball... we have some concerts coming up. March 7 is Parker Mainstreet's last Winter Series Concert featuring the Steel Pennies. Tickets can be purchased online here. A shout out to the Crystal Hill Billys who will be the opening act. Check the "Show Schedule" under "Bands on Call" to see what our members are offering up all across the state of Colorado and beyond.
The Bluegrass at the Audi series has two more concerts: one this Saturday, Feb. 28 featuring Ragged Union, with the opening set played by Thunder and Rain. Buy your tickets here. The next concert is Saturday, March 14 and features High Plains Tradition, with the opening set played by our own Crow Hill
We are looking to YOU to keep us in the loop on the jam scene in Colorado. It's a big area to cover. The new website organizes the jams by day of the week. So check that out. If you see a jam that's not happening anymore, it would be great to let us know. And if you want to add a jam, please do so here.
In April we will be celebrating the coming of Spring with the Durango Bluegrass Meltdown. That happens April 17-19, 2015. And here's a link to the festivities. Or check out the 2015 North Platte Country Bluegrass Festival, April 23-25. Check here for details.
There are several volunteer opportunities with CBMS. We are dividing up the volunteer gigs by category. We think it will make it a bit easier for you. Rather than just saying, "We need volunteers!" We are saying, "We need volunteers to help with....membership, ticket sales, events, social media, etc..." Check out the opportunities here.
And as always, stay in touch with us on Facebook through our own CBMS page, and our Pow'r Pickin' page.
