Re: Musicians Contact
I don't currently use networking sites. Not to sound smug, but I'm sufficiently busy and not seeking new projects. :) I did sign up with DrummerHunter.com (now gone) and got one response and a monthly gig from it. I signed up with a few others years ago, I recall Guitar Center's contact site was among them, and never got a response. I never thought of Craigslist as a viable site to advertise, although I suppose if musicians actually look for other musicians there, it's just as valid as any other.
Regardless of the responses you may get, there's always the issue of how commited the other person is, I don't think that flakes are limited to Craigslist. For people in L.A., Musician's Contact Svc has some credibility. I just don't know if that translates to their online presence.
