We’re different from other DC local media.

  1. No one covers the DC music scene like we do.  DC Music Rocks covers the full local music scene, not just the music. We were founded by a local musician and musicians are a big part of the team, so we understand the local scene.  We cover the news, live shows, music videos, interviews, and highlighting the region’s talent. There is no other resource like DC Music Rocks for the local DC music scene.

  2. Our followers are loyal and keep coming back.  We aren’t just a show, we’re a resource for fans.  Our listeners and fans come back for our local music calendar, our DC artist database, and music playlists.

  3. We’re syndicated. This isn’t just a once-a-week radio show, it's also a podcast and airs multiple times a week on more than one FM radio station. Plus our website is popular and our social media presence is strong and active.

  4. Our followers are a special niche.  Our followers and fans are all local to the DC region. They’re proud of this city, they love music and live music, and they like to be “in the know” on what’s happening. They know that DC Music Rocks delivers.
