I feel really stupid, but are there any websites or something that I can use to help find a band? Or even things I could do? Thanks.
That's how a bunch of my musician friends all got together. One guy hosted acoustic jams at the local union hall every month and over the years some of those people have grouped up and played various folk festivals, blues jams and local pubs.If there are any open mic nights anywhere in your area, that can be a good way to meet musicians.
Yeah, me too. Problem is that there are a couple of acoustic open mic nights fairly near, but the ones that include drummers are over 40 miles away. Kinda hard to do on a week night when you get up at 5:00 AM.I haven't had a lot of success with Bandmix but I think it may vary per area. Music stores use to have a board for musicians to post stuff I remember-do they still do that or has technology replaced such as that? I'd love to try the open mic jam thing.
to me, this is the best way...Go to see some local bands and you meet people. My bass player met me at a local show where I knew the band so was hanging around after, and he came over to chat. 2 months later he's in the band full time
In a band with an ex of a friend who I met at his shows,
And I've been to auditions from things from FB, never been a good fit, but there's always adverts on 3 groups I am in for drummers in North West England,
Lot of great ideas in the thread that don't need repeating - but one other thing you should look into is your local college or university.I feel really stupid, but are there any websites or something that I can use to help find a band? Or even things I could do? Thanks.
