Local Musicians Join the OC Entertainment Calendar

Ocean City Boardwalk Arch

The newest addition to the local music scene…

iOceanCity Guitar Neck Ad…is also the most comprehensive Entertainment Calendar in the area. Launched at the end of 2016, it is already becoming quite popular, with several talented local musicians sending us their schedules. This is the newest feature that started with the popular Ocean City area website, OCtheBeach.com, which has been online since June, 1999 (currently being redesigned).

It’s no wonder why, either. The calendar has many advantages for local entertainers:

  1. OCtheBeach receives thousand of visits each week (even off-season).
  2. The related Facebook Page has20,000+ “Likes.”
  3. The related Twitter Page has over 8,000 “Followers.”
  4. We are developing “Feature Pages” for each local performer with info and links to their own Websites and Facebook Pages.
  5. Upcoming gigs are automatically displayed on the home page.
  6. Share your next gig to your Facebook Page with One Click.
  7. FREE!* There is no charge for local musicians.

Musicians & venues: for more info contact Music @ OCtheBeach.com.

Please note, that we cannot accept just anyone or any venue and the calendar will soon be at capacity. We do not want to overwhelm our thousands of weekly readers, many of whom have been visiting OCtheBeach.com for nearly two decades.

*How can we do this at no charge? OCtheBeach.com has been “earning its keep” for 18 years via commissions from hotel reservations, ad-share revenue from a national advertising source and from product sales. 



Promotion Tip – for Service Industry Folks

Hey service industry friends!

Do you work at a bar that has entertainment or other events? Did you know that you can PROMOTE those events and people will literally show up at your job and give you money?

An additional benefit is that it helps your entertainer type friends and keeps your place in business.

I heard that from Sean Styles of the Walk of Shame Band – a Pittsburgh band – but Sean lives and performs here at the beach in the summer. Makes sense. Eh?
