Local Bluegrass Bands
Bands are responsible for notifying the editor of the Tribune of scheduled performances and events by web page schedule, email or phone no later than the 2nd Wednesday of the month to assure the proper posting of your event in the Tribune. (No exceptions please). Editor, Jim Andersen, email@example.com or (757) 477-5651. Events for the TBMA Band Links Page (this page) are accepted and posted at all times. A genuine attempt at keeping this list up-to-date at all times is an on-going project. If your group has a YouTube video posted or a FaceBook Page, send the link so others can view the video or become your "friend". The primary way to keep this information current is with your input and help.
