We are now actively recruiting SW Bluegrass Bands to be listed with S&S. Our database of desired venues for bluegrass music entertainment is 90% complete for the greater Tucson area. Now work has been initiated on expanding the database to include the greater Phoenix area. Once there are a sufficient number of bands listed, S&S will be calling on the desired venues to establish a working relationship and boost the demand for bluegrass music entertainment. Many of these venues are the type that will have repeat booking year after year when the entertainment is good. This Website, http://SSbluegrass.com will remain "under construction" until the bands are listed.
In April of 2012, Jim Sanchez and Charlie Sides were doing some bluegrass jamming at Charlie's house. Jim started talking about how difficult it is for bluegrass bands to get bookings; that's when he said, "We should start a booking business exclusively for bluegrass bands. There is a need and there is no local firm that's tailored to service the Bluegrass Community. It wouldn't be for free, but I think we could help improve bluegrass band pay as well as the frequency of bookings. Part of that goal can be accomplished just by helping the potential booking venues discover the powerful and unique entertainment value of Bluegrass Music. Since I totally agreed with Jim's assessment, I responded, "Let's Do It!" and a handshake sealed the partnership. We named our Firm "S&S Bluegrass Promotions" for Jim Sanchez & Charlie Sides.
