Iowat: Volume I

Words and edit by Bruce J. Bales

I think I could easily make excuses about why I haven’t been posting regularly, but I won’t. Instead, I’ll give you this: the Iowa Connection is a community. Our community, like any, is a direct reflection of what we put into it. I will keep putting effort, time, and passion forth, but I ask you to do the same. It could be something as simple as telling someone about the site, sharing a recent post or telling someone they did a good job with an article, photo, or video. You can take this as complaining or you can take it as a call to action. I’ll still be here either way.

With that being said, I present to you an example of what can happen when we get together to create. This video is the first in what I hope to be a long-lasting series. One of my main goals in making this was to use all Iowa-affiliated music, so don’t just watch the video, research the bands afterwards. Support the communities around you by taking time to look, learn and listen. I promise you’ll find there is much more here than you might think. Love live Iowa.
