Calling All Reps! Rock Army Music Regional Rep Program

I originally built MusicRVA with the hopes and intentions of finding one or two good Richmond area writers I could train as reps, because I simply can not do it all. Unfortunately I was not able to find anyone in the Richmond area capable of taking this position, and Crystal my main writer is in medical school and has no more time to spare. With that said, please read on....

Rock Army Music was formally known as Tour Dates. When Tourdates was bought by Launch in 2000, I who had worked for them rebuilt the site under the name Tourdatesnow, and more than half the reps followed me to the new site. Due to circumstances, and health issues, I was forced to take a hiatus, and the website was closed down, but not before purchasing the domain RockArmyMusic. The site had over 6000 visitors before it was even launched in 2001 and I am now in the process of rebuilding this site and am currently accepting applications for reps. Please read the details below.

I just wanted to state, you also get a profile page which you can add even more resources, links and articles on. So you have a profile webpage, and if you become a rep, a rep page as well.

Bands and venues are also encouraged to join, so you can build further relationships with them. Fans can read all the articles on the site, but we prefer to keep membership here to only reps, industry people and venues. Fans can join the MusicRVA network to interact and make thier own profile pages. The 2 networks will be interlinked.
