Yup. That’s exactly what Rolling Stone Magazine labeled this Long Island band:


the Good Rats


Although the band was described this way by the prominent music magazine, here on Long Island the Good Rats have been known for ages, and even earned an induction into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

The Good Rats will be playing at The Big Kahuna in Huntington on Saturday April 28th. After that show, the band will be performing at various locations, about once or twice a week all over the metropolitan area.

For a complete biography, gig schedule, and downloads, visit their website. The site even has merchandise to purchase!

And speaking of websites: For those of us who strive for recognition in the music field, the Good Rats website is a perfect example of how to market your band and what a well-functioning website should contain.

While some band websites have more sizzle, such as graphics, and video, the Good Rats site shows the important elements needed for fans (and perhaps booking venues) to learn more about the group and stay in touch with them as well.

So if you feel your website needs improvement, or you’re looking to launch a website, the Good Rats site is a great example and well-done. If you don’t have a website, or worse, you’re not even thinking about creating one, stop relying only  on facebook or twitter; you need to rethink this matter ASAP.
