Student-Created Web Site Successfully Supports Local Artists

IndieBandHub.com, Full Vasquez_vargas Group.jpga site created by students in the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business, recently completed its first project by supporting artist Rafeal Vasquez with everything from recording to manufacturing his new album.
Created as a class project in MBU 3630 (Record Company Operations), the site serves to encourage the local Nashville music scene and create opportunities for bands to communicate, share and assist each other’s efforts.
Rafeal Vasquez, an artist member of Indie Band Hub, performed Oct. 17 with the Mariachi Vargas at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Vasquez performed works from his upcoming CD produced by Indie Band Hub/Acklen Records. The album was recorded in Nashville’s historic RCA Studio B and ranges from flamenco guitar to classic Latin rock.
