Welcome! We’re thrilled you found our little piece of the internet and honored to have you as part of our Greater Boston music community.

Here's a bit about what to expect from Boston Loves Music's website as well about its founder, TIMKO (aka Tim Kochanski).  

Can't find what you need?  Email us and we will get back to you ASAP!


Boston Loves Music exists to create a supportive, inclusive community of performers, bands, and nightlife across the Greater Boston area.  We support fantastic, unsung musicians first, and dedicated music-lovers second.

While this website is in its infancy, our hope is that it will grow into a comprehensive resource for rising musicians in the Boston area.  

This website won’t tell you who is playing at the Paradise (or at least, not yet….but we have big plans for the future 😉).

Instead, Boston Loves Music guides you to local events (open mics, Porchfests, etc.) and resources (coming soon) to help you advance your music career.    


The idea for Boston Loves Music sparked in 2014.  Tim was looking for a way to promote and create buzz for his Open Mic socials around the Boston area.  

But he didn’t want to raise up just himself. He wanted to build a community and lift up other inspiring musicians in the area.  

And apparently he had a knack for writing emails, since his newsletter has been going strong (even during the pandemic) for 10+ years…. 


Wait, who’s TIMKO? TIMKO (short for Tim Konchanski)

Tim does more than write a dang good newsletter.  He's been a local singer/songwriter for 20+ years, and open mic host and event music planner for 10+ years.  

When not knee-deep in music, he aspires to cook the perfect pancake.
