Music Connection Dayton is proud to announce the launch of our new music and service directory!


We’re creating a centralized online space for
Dayton area music, both present and past.
To put it simply, we want to harness our collective community power and help separate our community from the overload of information on other sites!

fu-1-sybilka-storieFlying Underground is a Pop and Rock & Roll powerhouse from Cincinnati, Ohio featuring energetic riffs, sonically explosive guitars, and rebellious lyrics belted out with clarity, sweet melodies, and enough grit to get your engines revved up and ready to rock!

Coming up in just under 2 weeks, they’ll be burning down the stage at Blind Bob’s in Dayton as they hook up with local rockers, Me & Mountains, and this will be a blistering night of Rock & Roll that we really wish was here already!

Dayton Underground Series - album cover - March 2016Last Saturday evening, The Dayton Underground Series kicked off to a packed house at WO Wrights Grill & Pub! Fans started arriving about an hour before the show, ready to hear some killer music, and that is exactly what they got!  

More than 170 people came out to hear Able Danger, Left in the Dark, and our Best of Dayton Underground 2015 “Best Rock” winners, Crosley Court, and it was a fantastic evening all around!  This was the perfect way to celebrate Music Connection Dayton‘s unofficial 3rd anniversary and the 1 year anniversary of W937 Dayton Radio, and we can’t even tell you how hard it was to wait to share this amazing music with you!   (more…)

a0372161099_16A Thursday evening in Dayton’s Oregon District may not be quite the social spectacular that the weekends are, but there was plenty to see last Thursday at Blind Bob’s when Jeremy Porter & the Tucos rolled in from Detroit for the second stop on their 2015 Southeast USA tour.


diddley-featuredimageAll this month, I’m excited to point our October Spotlight on local rock band, Diddley!

Bringing their heartfelt groove to area stages for more than a decade, Diddley’s “music from soul to soul” is all about making personal connections with those around you, and when you groove with these classic/southern rock tunes, you’re gonna have a good time!
