(FAQ: No, you can’t just attend a tiny desk concert, you’ll need to be the guest of someone who actually works there)
Listeners we’re reaching out. Have you heard about something DC Music Rocks could be involved in? Interested in hosting a meetup to go see local musician’s shows? Organizations that have similar missions to ours we could partner with? We’d love to hear other ways you have that come to mind, send us a note, we’re looking for other ways to collaborate with the local music community.
Shoutout to Stephanie Mathias, featured on last week’s program, she Facebook live streamed listening to herself on the radio for the first time ever last week, and it was so cool for us to get to see that moment. We loved it and are happy to share the link so you can watch the moment too:
Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Fortunate Son" - (Cover By His Dream Of Lions) - They made it like a music video, good stuff!

About Taylor Thomas:
Taylor has been involved in the media since she was in high school back in the good ol' state of Indiana! From on screen TV hosting a regional sports show on Fox Sports, to sideline reporting for the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers & nearly years in the TV Commercial sales - she's seen and heard it all. Taylor has since taken all of her knowledge of marketing, sales, & dealing with people with her to her current career in DC as a Real Estate Agent on the #1 selling team at Compass Real Estate - The Mandy & David Team.
Three interesting facts:
1) I also have the self-proclaimed "coolest dog in the DMV." Our boxer-bullmastif, Murphy, has the biggest personality and I often refer to her as my "furbaby."
2) If anyone knows how big the Indianapolis 500 in Indiana is you might be able to appreciate this one: I was crowned the 2012 Indianapolis 500 Festival Queen & got to give winner Dario Franchitti a smooch on the cheek in the famous "Winners Circle"
3) I work on a show that promotes all types of amazing singers & I too sing - but only in my car or when I'm in the kitchen cooking by myself LOL
