Find more about Calgary and music.
Looking for a good music rock site in the Calgary area? There are several options open to you. The allmusic website (above) gives you a GREAT deal of information on international recording artists; the Calgary news and entertainment weekly FFWD has got to be a good starting block for the local scene. (When it existed).
In this weekly magazine - available both in a free paper edition as well as online ffwdweekly.com, you can find details of where all the live bands are playing and when.
Everything from rock band names to country and blues bands are listed.
Of course, you can also go to the Calgary Folk Music Festival, but you'll have to wait now until next July. Yes, I can see what's going through your mind... rock music at a folk music festival? What is this person thinking?
But you'd be surprised as the Calgary Folk Music Festival doesn't just have folk music. Rather, it caters for most music tastes from rock to blues to folk, and even hip-hop.
If, on the other hand, you're more interested in singing along to some classic rock, for instance, what you would be looking for is a good classic rock lyric sheet or rock and roll lyric sheet so that you can learn the words in the comfort of your own place before going out and singing in public.
Rideau Music store can help you here. They have several outlets in the Calgary area as well as a website. For more details, check out rideaumusic.com.
This'll help you prepare, and if you're lucky, may Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee will be watching for you.
Not found what you are looking for yet? Then this web site might succeed where others have failed, gigmasters.com. It's not purely a site for Calgary or for Canada even, but it does give you a great idea of what rock bands and other music groups are available in the Calgary area.
It also gives you a handy brief background on each band and their type of music - rock, country, Caribbean etc. And, if you're nowhere near the Calgary map, hopefully this website covers your geographical area just as intensely.
Calgary Rocks! Or does it? Know of any other great bands in town?
Country? Metal? Alternative? Your Band? Maybe someone else wants to know. Let us know.
Most bands need whatever help they can get. Help yourself now and include a photo if you wish. Maybe you can even find a good band to join here. Good Luck.
