Are You the Hardest Working Band in St. Louis? We Want to Talk to You

Categories: Homespun

We here at RFT Music get out to as many shows and venues as we can in the St. Louis area, but the reality is that we simply can't attend them all or get to know all the musicians in town.

Last week, RFT Music Editor Kiernan Maletsky and I were out on Urban Chestnut's new beer garden watching Beth Bombara perform and discussing this question over steins: Who is the hardest working band/singer/artist in St. Louis?

We threw out a couple names, but the discussion got complicated quickly: What makes a band the hardest-working? Number of shows? Difficulty of songs? Length of sets? And how would we know who best fit whatever criteria we used? So we decided that we needed to do some serious research before slapping or not slapping that label on anyone.

So, we open this discussion up with you, the artists and concert-goers of St. Louis. If you are or know of a band/artist that works harder than anyone else in this town, let us know. Cover bands, residency regulars, session musicians, wedding singers, club DJs, we'll look into them all. We want to get this right.
