Some bands have been finalist to play the 2006 Rolling Rock Town Fair, after being contacted by them and asked to supply a list of bands to check out. Some of the musicians on the show, have been used as session players. Other live guests have also hooked up with similar bands on the playlist to play shows together.

SOS PGH Concert Series Interviews
SOS PGH Concert Series Interviews: The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of life and business. Across the country, thousands of local venues, promoters and bookers have experienced devastating losses of revenue and increased debt. Nearly 90% have suggested they run the risk of significant financial hardship or closure in the coming months. We have already lost countless venues in Pittsburgh since the beginning of the pandemic. While the CARES Act, PPP Loans and other stimulus programs have provided assistance to many aspects of our local community and businesses, these programs often overlooked the unique needs and attributes of our local music venues.
Build the Scene Radio
Our Build the Scene Radio plays unsigned music 24/7/365. We are based in Southwestern Pennsylvania, USA, and that is our main focus, BUT we do play music from all over the world.

You’re Gonna Dig It!
had the privilage of being on the PA Rocks show with my acoustic act Suffacate some time ago. I was still relatively new to the scene and I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting into when we were asked to do the show. Bill’s professionalism and candor though out the interview were far beyond anything I expected! It wound up being an absolute blast to be on the show! Thanks Bill.
Build the Scene you’re doing a great job! Thank you so much!
I would really like to thank Bill Domiano for his wonderful job on Build the scene. His attention for underground original music and his constant research is making a difference for all of us emergent musician and players. He helped me sharing my first record all around the world, and through his work I got to know and to listen to a lot of emergent musicians I didn’t know before.
Genius Comes from Community
Bill has the right idea. Genius emerges from community. Athens, Rome, the Renaissance, The Moulin Rouge, the Impressionists, Cubists, the Harlem Renaissance, the Algonquin Round Table, the Beats, Greenwich Village, CBGB’s and Max’s Kansas City… You know the names of individuals because of the cumulative impact of many. We work as individuals and bands, but we are a Niagara Falls of talent, the success of each propelling the others. Thank you, Bill.
