What Others Say About Us

We are proud of our 74% repeat customer rate. Many musicians have registered numerous times over the years. Here's what some former and current members say:

"Back in 1996 I signed up and landed a job with an artist. That one gig/band lasted nearly 14 years, and the past 3 years we were the house band at Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar and Grill" 5 nights per week in Vegas. With that band we played as a backing unit for several county as well as headliner rock artists. Thanks for the great gig Sterling and please keep up the great work!"
--- Jim
"Pianist Oleg responded and he turned out to be a great asset for our recording project. Thank you Musicians Contact Service. You've always been great from your early days when the little office on Sunset was the humble beginning of Musicians Contact Service. Keep up the good work and God bless!"
--- Ed Silvercloud
"For 10 years I have continued to work through musicians contact. Thank You Sterling! You have created a wonderful service that everyone needs to know about. That is the reason when other musicians ask me how do you get so much steady work, I tell them sign up for and see how it is possible. It is affordable and easy to use. How could you go wrong?"
--- Brad Roberts
"Whenever I place ad, many musicians call. Excellent service!"
""I've been singing and playing for over 35 years. And for the last 22 years, Musicians Contact Service has been a viable resource for gigs, additional contacts, and connections! Sterling, keep doing what you're doing man! You're making dreams come true.""
--- De Thomas
"The last drummer in our band came from Musicans Contact, and his abilities and personality fit our group perfectly. Thanks so much for providing such a valuable service to the music community."
"Musicians Contact put me in touch with a band in Orange County in 2003 and we have been playing together ever since. We play clubs, parties, weddings and have made good weekend income. While we have had ups and downs, it has been a lot of fun and I owe it all to Musicians Contact. For my money, it's better than eHarmony! Thanks Sterling."
--- Jerry
"Sterling, your Musicians Contact service is one of the most valuable networking tools on the modern market for freelance musicians. Every single year that I’ve worked with you, the money that I’ve paid to be a part of musicians contact has ALWAYS come back 100x over. And I literally mean 100x. No stock market or real estate investment can ever touch that!! Your website and database presents job security to any worthy musician who has seriously pursued and perfected his craft. And on top of that it’s afforded many like myself, the priceless experience traveling and touring the world doing what I love. For those of us who are true professional musicians, your website allows us to continue to live out our passion as full-time artist and performers. I can not thank you enough for your faithfulness to us musicians and to your business. "
--- Jonathan Kuehling
"This is, and has been since the late 1960's THE site to find the best musicians in L.A. I have found pro players through MCS for decades and I could not, and still as of 2009, can not find a better website to hook up with pro players."
--- Jeff Austin Addison
"Nobody does it better, Thanx, Jack"

--- Bill Koehler
"Thank you for this service, I recently joined a band(sixtiesmania)working full time in town, and couldn't be happier. I will tell everyone I know Musicians Contact Service has worked for me."
--- James Stone
"Finding steady work as a musician can be very difficult. After hearing about, I signed up and created my musical profile. The very same day I received calls for auditions as well as made calls to acts looking for drummers. I auditioned the day after signing up and was hired into a full-time working band. You can imagine my excitement. Also, being able to deactivate my account and use the remaining days at a later time is a great benefit. The service has already paid for itself, but if I need or want to find more work, I just reactive my profile and wait for the calls and/or make calls of my own to the many acts looking for musicians. Thank you! "
--- A drummer
"I have been thrilled with Musicians contact on the whole, in terms of qualified musicians for my project, as well as the speed and professonalism with which these gifted artists have come to me. Within a day of placing my ad, I received three responses for bass players, and within three hours of placing my ad for a drummer I received two responses! There are other sites and organizations you have to pay a lot to and you never receive the quality and depth of musicians to choose from, that are actually a fit for what you do, much less receiving the quality, speed and volume of candidates as I did. I am completely sold on Sterling and musicians and I would recommend them to anyone trying to place members for their band, or for getting into the right musical situaiton. "
--- Jon Dowling
"Excellent results so far. your service has helped me put together most of a road band for Roy Rivers, in a little over one week and emerging country artist. I couldn't be happier!!"
--- Chris Russo

"Thanks Sterling. Whether I am booking events for my band or singing background or lead for someone else, MCS keeps me busy. This year, I sang at the Playboy Mansion with John Ferrari & Friends, was hired as road manager for a Motown 60's act, performed with an 80's band, made many connections with international booking agents that have been requestinig packages and found some really good musicians. I recommend you ti everyone. Thanks a million!!!!"
--- Kenyatta Mackey
"I just wanted to thank the site for always being a reliable service to find pros. I have found both for my original and cover projects and have always gotten a great deal out of it . My current original project i met the bass player and guitarist on this site and my cover sitaution ( off the wall) - we met 5 years ago and have since been touring doing USO shows for our military for 3 years . Just wanted to say thanks for the opportunity this site have given me to make a living as a singer :) Something not many people can say . - michelle velasco "

"I have only been a member for a few months, and I am so impressed on how personal this company is. There is a acctual person watching the sight and they are there to answer and help an anyway they can. For the price I pay to be a member on this sight amazes me, because you are getting to meet people around the world, and get the people you need to meet and the work you want for such a cheap price, this service would normaly cost you thousands in airline tickets, phone calls, or management doing the calls. and it is all wrapped up all in this site/Company. My manager has also fallin in love with this service. Thank you for having this service availible to us musicians. Musicians Contact KEEP ROCKIN! And you will always have my support."
--- Ricky B
"A bass player saw my listing in Musicians Contact Service and called me to sub for his guitar player. The gig was not glamorous and it didn't pay very well but I like to play out a lot to stay in practice so I took it. On the gig, I met a guy who, at the time, I figured was just another goof in a bar. A few weeks later, the guy called me and asked if I would be interested in playing guitar on a children's concept CD project he was putting together. He agreed to my usual rate ($500/day), promised me several days work and then asked if we could get together to take a look at his material. I was still skeptical but I agreed to meet the guy for dinner. Turns out, he had some great lyrics but no music. Before we finished our main course, we had agreed that I would write all of the music and produce the CD with a professional budget using my regular crew of musicians and vocalists. I would get my usual daily rate plus a $0.50 per CD producers' royalty plus a million shares of stock (about 12 percent) of his company (just in case the licensing rights turned out to be the cash cow)… and I would retain 100 percent of my publishing. On our first rhythm tracking day, we breezed through the material scheduled and, afterwards, my keyboard player, referring to some other charts in my book, says, "Hey, why don't we play one of these?" So we ran down a few of my tunes and this quickly become our modus operandi for the next few weeks, i.e., after completing a day's work on what came to be called The Martian Sessions, we would then spend several hours "off the clock" working on the tunes for me. So this is how I went from a listing with Musicians Contact Service, to a "paid practice" gig, to getting paid both cash up front, royalties and a lot of stock to write and produce Martians Incorporated - The Invasion plus getting my third solo CD recorded for free. Not a bad return on a $95 investment. More at…"

"I would like to thank Musicians Contact for providing a great service for players everywhere. Through your service I connected with a terrific working band. They provided the location and work I was looking for and I provided them with the expertise to fill the spot they needed in their lineup. Within days I was crossing the desert in my covered wagon to join them. Been here for almost a year and looking forward to another. Thanks again, MCS."
--- GM Cotten
"Sterling has had the best place to find pro players for decades. Not only have I used them since I found them (about 10 years ago), but a freind of mine from Joe Hosutons band was there the day they began, in the 70's! This has been around for a long time and always a success!"
--- Jill Sharpe
"I've been using Musicians' Contact since 1969. It's a major part of my success in my career. Thanks Sterling."

"Musicians contact, thank you very much in the assistance in finding members for the group.This was quick, easy And painless.Thanks agian. Second Story View"
--- 2.S.V
"As the leader of the band, every job is harder than the next. There is no help organizing musicians to learn their parts, come on time to rehersal, dress properly for gigs, find gigs etc, etc etc, on & on. However as we all know as hard as it is to work and get paid in this industry, when opportunity knocks and you have to shuffle to get 4 - ? musicians to commit on a given day Musicians Contact is the only game in town to fill this void. Without MUSICIANS CONTACT SERVICE most acts would be de-funked before they started "
--- Jukebox Heroes
"Hey Sterling! Keep up the great work! This is a fantastic service and very, very, helpful to anyone who is looking to get those first paying gigs and those of us who have been.

"Thanks to Musician's Contact, I got hooked up with a gig that pays very well and sends me around the world. It all happened within a week of signing up. Then a real person from Musician's Contact called me up on the phone just to say thanks and ask if I had got a job yet. This is a real service with real people, not just a money scheme web site. I strongly recomend this service to any musician seeking work!"

--- eddie
"I signed on last year and got a couple of hits, but nothing solid. The cool thing was that these guys contacted me almost a year later to see if I had gotten any work resulting from the service. Sterling, who called, made suggestions and was very helpful in assisting me to get back into the system. It seems that the east coast is just catching on to this excellent networking tool. I am happy to be on the leading. Thanks guys!"
"I used Musicians contact for the first time in July and got immediate response with quality musicians. Filled my need right away and the great thing is when I had some technical difficulties on the site they were right there to help me straighten it out. Unlike other webmasters that take days to get to your problem. In this industry when you have a gig and you need to post it's nice to know if there are any problems that it will get handled immediatly. Thanks Musicians Contact Services!!! Pat @"

"I am a former member from years back. MCS is an excellent contact, to the main stream of the Rock Music industry and culture. It pays to advertise. Glad to be back."
--- Chris Holley
"I joined MCS last Tuesday (10/30) afternoon. Within minutes of joining as a vocalist available for work I scored a gig for that same weekend which more than paid for my membership. I haven't even found that amount of work with my Musician's Union membership and I've been a member since April of this year! Also, posted an ad for musicians to work with my band, and have met a plethora of players over the last few days. Great service!!"
--- La Morena
"Dear Musicians Contact, I had just graduated from high school and not knowing what I was going to do, when I friend of mine referred me to your service. He told me that your service helped him to get into many groups, and that I should be thinking about getting into a paying band that was or will be touring on the road. When I became a member of your service, I found many ads to look and up and inquire about. I was not even on the service a week when I found a listing for a band that really interested me. So I made some contacts, and before the next week was up, I was hired. Without this service, I don't think I would be in the awesome band I am in now. Thank you! Edward Ingram, Keyboardist "
--- Edward Ingram
"MCS is the bees knees! You always have quality musicians and gigs, which is refreshing. Some of the projects I've gotten through you have been some of the best in my career. Artists like Jordan Allen, and Code 6 (formerly Visionz) have turned into long-term, fun projects. I even found a great new bass player for my band RioSoul. Keep on doin' what you're doin'. Sterling, you da man!"
--- Kenwood Anderson

Now with the service being online it is even better. I am looking forward to another good year. Thank you much!"
--- Forte Carter

--- Melissa Berman
"Thanks for giving us all an affordable and effective place to look for jobs. I`m no millionaire (at least not yet), but I have found solid jobs through you for the last 3 years. I`ve been to Maui for a 3 week gig, flown to Miami, done countless recordings in all styles, and had a chance to arrange for a 16 member choir. Even if certain projects fell through, I still met professional and talented musicians that I still keep in touch with."
--- Faith Rivera
"The $45 investment was well worth it - I landed a killer gig with Blacksheep and just got back from a US tour. The pay was good and we were on a Vanhool tour bus or in hotels. Like I said, not bad for 45 bucks."

--- Larry Medina
"As a working keyboardist/singer/songwriter, I have known Musicians Contact since 1973, and of all of the California gigs I`ve had throughout the years, the overwhelming majority can be attributed, directly and indirectly, to you. The only problem was the absence of your presence in other cities. Now, with this website, that problem has been solved and you have gone global. Congratulations! Keep up the good work and may the years bring you ongoing success. Many thanks always!!!"
--- Norman A. Norman
"I was totally down on my luck when I joined MCS. I had no job or place to stay. One night I called one of the producers from the service. We got along great and I started doing demos for him. A few months later we signed a production deal. Now, a year later, we've completed an album and we've got label interest from Reprise! Thanks MCS!"

--- Douglas McCowan
