I currently live in Kernville, but need band members in LA. SF is acceptable. Need to make a video to use for bookings as I launch new album. Music on www.amyarena.com . I could use a guitarist and a drummer or, even better, someone who bangs on drum machines like my busy husband (youtube Jeremy Ellis). Thanks! Amy

Art Opportunities Monthly (AOM) is offering a free, no-obligation 3-month subscription to introduce its new format. It is now much easier to read, a snap to search and it looks nice, too.
AOM, a monthly list of opportunities for artists and photographers world-wide, has been around for over 10 years. It is preferred by professional artists because it screens out the scams and for-profit "contests" and presents each hand-selected opp in a quick-to-scan capsulized form. It is sent in a highly search-able, freshly organized PDF directly to your email addresses.
