Utah Musicians Network Throwing Anniversary Bash
There's a real treat in store for Utah music lovers this weekend as the online radio venture, Utah Musicians Radio Network, celebrates its one year anniversary.
Starting Saturday, May 12th, at 2 pm, no fewer than six area bands will take the stage at Fat's Grill in Sugarhouse as part of a marathon music festival showcasing Utah's local music scene. The non-stop celebration will run through midnight.
The Utah Musicians Radio Network - brainchild of founder, John Farmer, aka Johnny Cat - has experienced phenomenal growth since signing-on back in 2011. The budding online enterprise now boasts 30,000 regular listeners and is heard in 70 countries worldwide. Its Facebook page alone has received nearly 2 million visits in the course of just the last nine months.
UMRN's impressive growth is drawing the attention of local merchants eager to reach the network's burgeoning fan base, as well as local musicians, who recognize the platform as a unique way to tap audiences that were previously out of reach. More than 350 local musicians have been featured on the site thus far.
Groups and artists scheduled to perform Saturday include, Withered Soul, Perish Lane, Jody Whitesides, Juana Ghani, AutoStigmatic and Dub Symptom.
