- AFBPromotions since 1996 has been dedicated to aiding, supporting, promoting, networking, and distributing independent music of all genres for free. AFBPromotions each year focuses on promoting roughly 20 or more artists known as their "roster" but always keeps their doors open for those needing assistance or help throughout the year. AFBPromotions' main goal is to simply help independent musicians who need help, no matter what they may need help with. AFBPromotion's services range from offering advice to link exchanges to writing official biographies to sharing resources and information on other services to handing out flyers on the street corner to selling CDs in their store to reviewing/interviewing materials for sister site Space Junkies Magazine. AFBPromotions however is not a booking service nor a management company. For more information about AFBPromotions please visit: http://www.aidforbands.com
