RSS Feeds

 

What is RSS? RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." it provides a way for you to grab important information from web sites on the internet automatically using Outlook, myAOL, My Yahoo, Google and other RSS readers.

You can get an RSS feed of the band web site calendar. This allows you to easily see what is happening on the calendar without having to go to the web site and dig around. You willnot be able to see any "protected" information such as trip schedules, etc.

What does it look like?

Different programs render the results of the RSS feed differently. For example, this is what you will see on your Google home page:
