We initially started out our Savvant Music blogs to be just that, blogs not reviews. Our original intent was for these to be notes from gigs researching possible artists for Savvant Music. However, over time we realized that more and more we were really reviewing the bands.
As a result, I’ve gone back and edited some of my earlier blogs about artist that had some notes about some improvements we’d like to see about bands, to just tell you what we liked. So, how do you know which bands to see, and which to avoid?
Well, if you’re a music lover, then go see them all, because we won’t write up any really horrible bands. If they aren’t worth seeing, we won’t waste our time or your time.
If you’re very, very picky, and only want to see the best of the best, then we’ll give you a Savvant Music guarantee that any band on our recommendations page is amazing, awesome and worth the time and money to see — assuming that their genre and style is to your taste. In other words, you may or may not like a given band’s style, but if we recommend them, you can count on seeing a great, professional show by amazing musicians.
In our reviews, we’ve classified bands as potential, which means they’re still working on polishing their act and amazing which means they’re pretty much there but we either haven’t had time to put together a “Recommendations” page, or the artist(s) are more mainstream than we generally look for in our recommendations policies. Sometimes we put them in both categories, because we think they’re pretty amazing, but they are still growing and changing.
I hope this better meets your needs and better aligns these blogs with our overall goals of supporting artists’ efforts and willingness to put it all out there!
