Frazer Consultants Announces Partnership with Grooveshark Music
How many of life’s memories revolve around music? From special songs played during father-daughter wedding dances to the tunes that kept the whole family jamming in the car, music plays an integral part in the tapestry of our lives.
Now, Frazer Consultants helps you tap into the powerful memories songs and music hold by giving your funeral home and the families it serves the opportunity to add meaningful songs to their online memorial pages through our new partnership with Grooveshark.
“Our goal has always been to give our funeral home website customers the most cutting-edge tools available,” says company president, Matt Frazer. “The ability to add free music tracks to our memorial walls from Grooveshark’s library of more than 15 million songs is just one of the current and in-development features our customers have access to in order to stand apart from their competitors.”Advertisement
Here’s how it works…
When family members or loved ones visit one of your Frazer-powered website’s obituary pages, they’ll see an “Add Music” icon, in addition to the ability to share photos, videos, icons and candles that have always come standard with Frazer websites.
Clicking on the “Add Music” icon will reveal the Grooveshark search bar, where visitors will be able to search the million of diverse songs found in the service’s database.
As visitors search for the songs that remind them of the deceased, they’ll see a list of suggestions appear, as well as the number of times each song has been shared to memorial walls throughout the Frazer network of websites.
Once the visitor has selected a song, it will be published – along with the person’s comments, memories or expressions of sympathy – to the memorial wall for everyone who stops by the page to enjoy for free. To see this new system in action, take a look at the following screenshot, pulled from Ola Darlene Hall’s memorial page on the Modetz Funeral Homes website:
Frazer Consultants is the only funeral home website provider offering free music integration capabilities to its customers. If you aren’t currently using a Frazer-powered site and would like to share the power of music with your families, give us a call today at 866.372.9372 for a free online demo.
[UPDATE – 7/5/2014]
Our new Grooveshark music sharing feature hasn’t even been live for a week, and we’re seeing some great interaction already! Check out the following obituary for Barbara E. Wagner on the Uecker-Witt Funeral Home website:
The two messages left with the Grooveshark song selections pictured above read:
“Barbara, you were a friend’s mom at first that turned into a mom for all of us kids (Band, Swing choir and just neighborhood kids). I had to send a Chicago song that we played in Jazz Band all the time and can remember you and Charlie always being there! My love and thoughts go out to all of the Wagner family – love you all! Mike Hanke”
“Momma, I had to post your favorite song! My heart hurts so much with missing you, but I know you’re with Dad so I can’t wish you back.”
We’re truly touched by the connections these and other guests have been able to make through the power of shared music. If you’re ready to offer this meaningful functionality to your funeral home’s visitors, give us a call today!

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
