Setting up Bands!
 
Okay ive been trying to set up a wedding band for the past 5 months. Its really been a nightmare completely. Basically i have real trouble getting reliable musicians in my area, so much so that ive had to employ my bass pupil who is 17 and get session guys from the other side of the country. Ive had to sack 3 guys for not turning up and as many have left because of the problems ive incurred. I have this chicken and egg dilemma that i cant get a full lineup to reherse , do pictures and submit to agents etc to get gigs, and i cant get the members until i get gigs.

I think really a lot of the musicians resent playing with a 'kid'. despite him being 100% reliable and a whizz on the bass. Im not sure where i can go, because ive invested a lot of time and energy and i was banking on this as being a long term band and i totally am determined to make it work and really want to do it more than anything.

Ah yes, welcome to the world of bands. If you are serious you just have to keep trying.

Don't get discouraged, it is the norm unfortunately for a lot of musicians.

im no stranger to setting up original fun bands and having years of hassle but this is more serious. i dont want to be down the line and spent thousands on gear and advertising and have it not work out. already bought a 1k pa rig and 500 on advertising.
