If you're a fan of Americana singer/songwriters, and original acoustic music in general, the MMA offers you a way to expand and strengthen its presence here in Birmingham. Through the exchange of information, the announcement of upcoming concerts and events, and your financial contributions, you can help our region attract and support a greater number of the acoustic songwriters and artists that deserve our community's attention and encouragement.
"The Moonlight Music Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, formed to promote the preservation and presentation of original songwriting and acoustic music to the citizens of central Alabama, through live music concerts, workshops, and seminars at appropriate facilities and venues in the area."
Without a presence on our local radio airwaves, original acoustic artists have a difficult time finding the audience that surely exists for them here. Until we can convince an area broadcaster to add the kind of Americana music programming that is so popular in other parts of the country, we'll have to create our own group of enthusiasts and resources to make sure Birmingham isn't off the route for the performers we can otherwise enjoy.
In addition to being a central reference for concert listings and a place for sharing information about new and upcoming artists, the Alliance seeks to provide funding for these activities at locations best suited for them, most centrally at Moonlight on the Mountain, a full-time listening room in the Bluff Park neighborhood of Hoover AL.
