“The Raleigh area is home to dozens of various event calendars, but what it was missing was an unbiased, impartial listing of events and concerts relevant to both residents and travelers,” said Dave Rose, co-owner of Deep South Entertainment. “With the launch of [themostnc.com] it is the bridge to bring all of that live music information together in a centralized place.”
In 2014, 15 representatives from area music venues, music festivals/presenters and other businesses in the local live music scene collaborated closely to create a comprehensive Greater Raleigh live music calendar, adapted from visitRaleigh.com. Launched yesterday, themostnc.com is the first comprehensive live music calendar conceptualized and collaborated on directly by Raleigh area live music leaders. So, why the most?
