“There’s a sense of being a larger part of the [music] community. The number one way I’ve connected with others is through Hump Day Hang. Every time I’ve knocked on a door, somebody’s answered. It’s not tough to make inroads.”

“There’s a community in the Collective that doesn’t exist anywhere else. It’s introduced me to a network of people to play with and provided opportunities hard to find without a booking agent.”
