So, I'm kind of new at drumming, and I keep seeing these posts on my local Craigslist from drummers looking for gigs or bands to play with. I see, in general, two main types of posts. So, some are from drummers looking to join or form a band; they'll list influences and maybe a link to some recordings with a former band. The other, far more common type of post, is a drummer posting looking for gigs. They specify that they don't want to practice, but they just want to play paying gigs. I guess my question is... is that real life? Do drummers actually find gigs by making these kinds of posts? Do bands really hire drummers who they've never practiced with for a show? If they do, do they make a lot of mistakes because they haven't practiced together? Is this only for certain genres of music? Usually these posts claim that the drummer plays "all styles of music." How much experience would a drummer need to be able to pull something like this off? Anyone here make posts like this? What is the logic behind not wanting to rehearse?
