About
Local Band Review is a project headed by Michael Lawson and Greg Flint, both music lovers and videographers. Started in 2009 their YouTube Channel currently has over 100 band engagements and is approaching 300 videos (as of August 2011). They have amassed over 3300 fans on Facebook in little more than a year.

Local Band Review has evolved to become a force in the Connecticut music scene promoting bands and venues with video reviews. The project is funded by both Mike and Greg, but also by donations from both fans and bands and the purchase for a minimal cost of the video footage from the shows. This footage is used by the bands themselves for promotion purposes in EPKs, music videos and other promotional material.

The launch of this website constitutes a new level of involvement with more writers, contributors and reviewers. We have expanded our role and now do Band, CD and venue reviews in conjunction with our videos. This year we hope to slowly expand beyond the borders of Connecticut by recruiting volunteers in other states.
