Our community includes local bands/musicians who all play rock music. By local, we mean the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Musicians/bands in this community have a few things in common. They all have personal and professional relationships. They understand each other’s needs and goals.
Everyone in this community desires a sense of well being. They all want to be safe and hope they can rely on others to give them tips on unsafe venues. They all also desire a sense of belonging. They need relationships in the field to compare and contrast their experiences.
Of course they all share a similar life goal, to become successful rock’n’roll musicians/bands and to share their musical talents with others who are interested.
People in the rock community want to have a choice whether or not to help other bands and musicians. They will want to put their band ahead of another band first, but then possibly share their experiences.
Finally, when it comes to their needs, people in this community constantly need material things, whether it is guitar strings or new speakers. They may need a way to get these things without sacrificing a lot of time or money.
