This music service isn’t just about letting fans listen to music they like; its intent is to connect fans with bands. By airing only bands from a local area, musicians not only gain exposure and are more easily discovered, but fans are more apt to find out about live performances. Both sides win. Created by Jake Kerber, Locusic is a website that has been growing quickly since March 2011 in the central Des Moines area. Since then it has received second place in the Dream Big Grow Here contest, an online contest where people vote for the idea they like most and the winner receives a grant to help fund the project.
