We started Madison Music Review (a.k.a MMR) as a way to share with you our recommendations and enthusiasm for upcoming shows and further listening. We hope to be a small force in building the community of active music lovers in the greater Madison area and encourage attendance at high quality local music performances. We’re not trying to be a one-stop listing for every show in Madison – We promote the music we love! We want our readers to trust that any show we recommend is one that we are truly excited to attend ourselves.

Meet the Partners:

Ankur Malhotra 

Bill Kunkler

Fred Simani
