First Bands App Launches on Facebook

Reverb NationReverbNation, a popular website that brings together artists, fans, venues, and record labels has just launched the first comprehensive bands application on Facebook. ReverbNation has spent the past 3 weeks developing this application, dedicating all of their company resources to its development. This definitely shows in the application. The application has a huge feature set that will be difficult to compete against. The only downfall with the application is that users have to sign up for the ReverbNation site in order to create a band page. I have to be honest, this application has a pretty massive feature set. It includes the ability to put your own custom playlist of ReverbNation artists on your profile, find shows, view charts, and create an artist page. Ultimately these are the features that any band application will need. As of last night, over 1,000 users had added the application and it seemed to be growing fairly steadily. I personally know of a few other band applications that are about to launch so it will be interesting to see how this pans out. While this is the first bands application to launch there will be at least 2 or 3 others that launch in the coming week. Ultimately, this will be a battle of feature sets, buzz worthiness, and talent. If you want to check out the first incarnation of a bands application for Facebook, go grab the ReverbNation application.
