Here’s what our advertisers are saying:

As the Publicist for the Nation’s third longest running dinner club of its type in the Nation, I always include NWMS in our advertising budget. They’ve worked to create a rabid following of hungry music lovers from rock to blues to world to jazz, they know how to drum up business! – Rachael Millikan/Publicist Jazz Alley

Northwest Music Scene is the real deal – far more than a banner ad here and there. They reached deep into the Seattle music scene to spread our message and got hundreds of local artists to sign up for GigTown. Getting past the typical musicians’ skepticism about anything is no easy task, but NWMS made it happen because of their credibility in the scene and willingness to put in the work for their advertisers. – Andy Altman/CEO GigTown

Northwest Music Scene has been instrumental in the success of our business, with the online advertising they have provided for us and the hands on personal care to make sure we are getting the most of our advertising budget. – Mark Saum/President Puget Sound Locksmith

100 Bands in 100 Days has gotten Verity a lot of attention this year! We’ve had more than one credit union publication/group reach out and talk to us about it. – Kira Cox/Sr. Marketing Specialist Verity Credit Union
