More & more I am being impressed by the quality of albums being released by 
Eastern Nebraska acts.   Listeners ask why?  I must say, that with the 
exception of maybe Austin, the quality of Omaha & Lincoln’s talent is second 
to no city in America.  Now that’s a big statement.  The final component 
missing is a sense of community.  I have had numerous bands, agents, and 
managers from outside the area tell me that they are so impressed by our 
local scene: the fact that bands support each other rather than create a 
scene of unfriendly competition and crimony.
With KIWR, KCTY & KEZO now featuring local music, with Homer’s support, with 
The READER & Omaha Weekly as well as Cox’s O2TV boosting the scene....things 
are really coming together.  The efforts of the Omaha Blues Society is a 
bond: for the blues but  where is the ‘bonding agent’ for the rock scene?  I 
know that Matt Markel at the Ranch Bowl has put his soul into the scene...and 
I know that Jay at the Music Box has a vested interest...but where is the 
‘bonding agent?’  Actually there are a couple of efforts being made; visit 
www.S.L.A.M.Omaha or join, ‘The Thursday Club’ for lunch Thursdays at 1:00 
p.m. at New York Pizzeria (76th & Cass Streets).  The Thursday Club is an 
informal meeting of radio, print, retail, cable, venues, and musicians that 
want to create a scene that continues to propel Omaha’s live music scene onto 
a national platform.  No dues - no agenda, just show up, eat, and get to 
network with the community!
