UPDATE:  The chargeback scheme severely set us back financially!  We are hoping to raise between $500 and $1500 to help upgrade the technology used to craft and update the Musiqtone website!  We need a brand new laptop and external monitor as our existing setup is now well over 7 years old and beginning to show signs of rapid deterioration.

Musiqtone is an online music news & media outlet that covers a broad spectrum of the music world, from the major labels to the acts you might find in your high school or neighbor's basement/garage.  We have been online for 11+ years and counting and give the modern music fan coverage into all things music, no gossip, no rumor-milling!  We cover a broad spectrum, from indie, mainstream and all points in between!

We had relied on the last couple years solely on advertising revenues generated by banner ads on the site. However, this year we lost our major partner in Google Adsense and once again need help from our reading community at large to hopefully put some funds back into the Musiqtone Operating Fund.

The fund is used for:

1.  Web site hosting and server expenses

2.  To reimburse and/or purchase concert tickets to send our writers to cover; a lot of labels have come to expect outlets to buy their own way in before granting press coverage...essentially passing on the cost of a guest list or will call right down to press outlets and locking some of the more strapped ones, like ourselves generally shut out.

3.  Future investment and rainy day fund.  There is always a future need for purchasing future equipment, upgrades to the server and simply having something in the fund for when we really do need it!

Consider this donation to the Fund as an investment in Musiqtone, in the people that help make what Musiqtone is and what it will be in the future.  If you love what you see, especially from our flagship features, The Countdown, The Hot Seat, The Critics Corner and The Spotlight, consider giving a one-time donation/investment!

Perhaps when we have the kind of investment we are seeking, we would strongly consider paying each and every one of you back and thanking you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us when we needed it the most!

Thank you!
