1st band

  1. I had my second audition yesterday and I got invited back to play. I’m excited this is my first band and I’m 32. I just want to thank the people on here who constantly preach about going out and joining a band no matter what age you are.

    {I was 36 when I got into my first (and current) band (not counting my life as a tuba player lol)... I turn 38 this Thursday, and we just did our first studio session for Demo tracks...}
