[MEL] = Melbourne [BAND] = Band Melband is a comprehensive listing of all things Music in Melbourne, Australia (and surrounds). A gathering place for Melbourne musicians to find out information, ask questions, network and promote their music. A directory listing of music based businesses including studios, record companies, venues, management and booking agencies and so on. Basically all the information you need from forming a band to finding a record deal.

To promote Melbourne Music and give Melbourne musicians a place to network and find information. Melband was first introduced in early 1998 basically as a directory listing of music businesses and Melbourne bands. The site grew as more information and ideas were added including the ever popular ‘Musos Wanted’ and ‘Message Forums’ turning the site into a great networking tool. The idea was first developed after we found it was hard to find that sort of information in any form and was not easily accessible to the average musician.

Melband is a registered business and is run by Geoff Mison and Daniel Birch.
