Re: How have you found band members?
The key is just getting to know people.
See if there is a local musician group to you on meetup.com
I'm sure there are musician hang out groups on facebook.
You have some musicians friends, make it a point to get to know their other friends who are musicians. And then those friend's friends. And then keep going.
Hang out where musicians hang out, like the clubs where bands play at.
Once you expand your circle of friends (which I understand is not always that easy), your bound to find people and/or situations.
