Here is something that many of you bandleaders on the list can find useful,  
although these directories are generally geared towards Rock groups, there is 
a lot of useful information in them that you can use.  If enough Dixieland and 
Trad. Jazz bands start contacting these folks you will be amazed at how the 
market will start to open up and the music will be accepted, and gigs will 
start to happen too if you push these folks and let them know that OKOM Is as much 
ALTERNATIVE MUSIC as anything else that is not Hard Core Rock & Roll.

I am a Recording Studio Partner with this company and can get you a copy if 
your interested, contact me off list, Also if you are thinking of putting out a 
CD let me know and I can help you get it done with these folks quickly and 

What is it? A decent directory: Thought I would pass it on to the list.  Good

It may not be the most powerful but it is certainly useful,
