What Is Memphis Music Month?

Started in October 2011 by local music activist Pat Mitchell Worley, Memphis Music Month is all about supporting our Memphis artists, musicians, and live music venues. If you haven’t looked into our current local scene in a while, this is the month to do it.

If you are a band, manager, venue operator, or otherwise hosting a live music event in the Mid-South (in October or any time) you can submit your event to the blog’s calendar here
