About

This site is intended to be a useful resource for bands and solo musicians within the Coventry and Warwickshire area, primarily those producing original music though I appreciate that many have to also prostitute themselves to the dark side of covers bands to actually make any money.

Please note that this site is a purely voluntary effort so any enquiries may not be responded to immediately. If you are interested in helping out with the maintenance of this site please send a message to admin@covscene.co.uk

History

This site originally came about in 2006 due to the efforts of a number of local musicians and others in the local music scene when the operator of a popular local music forum pulled the plug having become overwhelmed by the increasing levels of spam.

For a number of years Covscene was a thriving active forum, but over recent years a combination of the rise of other social media outlets and fragmentation within the local community the use of forums generally has died off to the extent that virtually the only activity is that of spammers. In addition content on the rest of the site was badly in need of updating, however the site still features quite strongly in search results for music within the Coventry area so rather than just pull the plug it was decided to try and rebuild the site to be more relevant to the needs of local musicians in 2013.
