What members say about Musicians Contact
“I've been with Musician's Contact Service for a LONG TIME. Much of the performance work I've gotten over the decades has come either directly, or indirectly, from MCS. It's been completely worth the membership fee and I'll stay with MCS until I retire... if that ever happens! LOL” – Barry Michael Wehrli, North Hollywood, CA
“I consider MC to be THE go-to resource for finding musicians and gigs. I've been successfully using MC for many years. Sterling has always been friendly, knowledgeable, and super helpful. The first time I used MC, I landed a 4-month touring bass gig. MC is the real deal...” – Mick Stover
