We’re different from other DC local media.

  1. Your name will cut through the noise.  We’ll be including you in our weekly presence in our follower’s lives, so instead of seeing your business as an annoying advertisement, they’ll be experiencing you as a part of the DC music family.  Your presence is shared across all our main channels regularly, multiple days per week. Regardless of whether they miss a post or two, you’ll be there on the medium they like the most, consistently over time.  You’ll be a part of something they love, their local music community, a part of their passion, not just their email of facebook newsfeed. No one else can offer this level of access into your potential customer’s lives like us.  

  2. No one covers the DC music scene like we do. DC Music Rocks covers the full local music scene, not just the music. We were founded by a local musician and musicians are a big part of the team, so we understand the local scene.  We cover the news, live shows, music videos, interviews, and highlighting the region’s talent. There is no other resource like DC Music Rocks for the local DC music scene. Our listeners and fans come back for our local music calendar, our DC artist database, and music playlists.  We offer the full scene in one place.
