Artist Lists

Come on in folks. Sit yourself down a spell and get ready for some fun. You're going to go browsing through our database of artists and groups. You'll get to see what shows they were a part of, the career honors they've received, the recordings they've made (where we can find the information) as well as some tidbits about them. And if that isn't enough, occasionally we'll find other websites who can give you a whole lot more than we can hear, especially the fan clubs and fans who've dedicated a few pages to the artist and/or group or a whole site to them.

Click on a letter at the top of the page. The next thing you will see is a list of artists whose last name begins with that letter. From there, just click on a name you're interested in reading about.

We're constantly adding information as we find it. We don't expect this site will ever be called 'complete'. Call it a hobby. Call it a scavenger hunt. But more than anything, its fun and we hope you enjoy your stay here.
