The site is hosted by Kirsten Starcher, who plays bass and keyboards in Vancouver band ARCTIC. Starting in September 2009, it is being managed by Jill Binder, whom you may see at open mics with a ukulele or two. As of November 2014, the site is updated and maintained by Jiffy, who is the front man for the band Anything But.

Everyone is welcome to get involved. OMV is a wiki, a site which can be edited by multiple people. If you'd like to help edit and update OMV, please get in touch!
