Hey now! Hello there and
welcome to MusiciansOnly.net - the world's best and largest.... blah,
blah, blah... Why do you always see that on other websites?
MusiciansOnly.net is barely a one man, part-time operation.
Anyhow, my name is Vito and I live in NYC and I am a
major music lover and occasional musician. Last year, I wanted to get

High School and College and I play guitar. I thought I was going to be

So since I graduated from college, my busy “adult life” has made it
really difficult for me to play again with other folks. I mean finding

version and “officially” launched the site on Monday March 20th, 2005.
Right now it is set up for 3 nearby metro areas my hometown New York
City, Philadelphia, and Boston but maybe that will expand in the future.
Now I just hope that other musicians find it useful. So pass on the
Here is my pledge to all musicians out there – whether
you are a pro, amateur, part-time, whatever… I will never charge you for
any service, features, or content. I just want musicians to have an
on-line community and resource to be able to connect with other
musicians as well as goods / service providers. I want to provide you
with good information and tools to make your life easier.
So let me know what you think – send comments to
I am trying to figure out what other features may be
helpful, so stay tuned.
Finally, thanks for using for MusiciansOnly.net and pass
on the word!
