I would like to start off by saying that The Grove Theater, a new venue in Pleasant Grove located in a wonderful building with a very high capacity, is looking for bands to play there. Contact (Nate Baldwin) to play there!

As you can already see, we're starting to make some changes to this blog. We are now known as The Provo Music Guide. You can become a fan on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. There are now a small handful of writers, and we are always looking for more! We have a new domain name registered and within the next few weeks will be leaving Blogger in order to add some needed features.

One thing that we really want Provo musicians and fans alike to have is a database of our many local acts. So right now we've created a list of all the bands we could think of. That list will include links to the bands' music, Facebook/Myspace/official pages, and if the band is willing, contact information for press and booking purposes. I am including the list in this post so you all can help me make it as accurate as possible. (Please note that some of these bands are recently defunct or have moved from Provo, but I include them anyway.)

The comment box below is there for you to help me out! Or you can send me an e-mail. Thanks for the support and love!

  2. What a list! And a fantastic starting point for us, thanks! We feel the same way about creating a database of the local Utah bands in order to (a) let everyone know who’s on the up-and-up in Utah, and (b) attract more viewership to the local bands’ events and pages.

    Check out our page at, where each week we add new blogposts of another band we’re exploring. We support this effort 100%, and are glad to find we’re not the only one wanting to make a difference in this sphere. Let us know if there’s any way we can help!

    1. We've changed the format up a bit, and added some new bands. Let us know what you think:
