    w00t!

    My band just added a cellist(sp?) and we are looking for a keyboardist(I think we already have one lined up).

    I just had to post this, I'm happy.

    Would you happen to be in the market for a kazoo player? I also double on slide whistle.

    We might add a bassonist. :D

    No, j/k about that.
     
  6. or how about an oboe. what band wouldn't be complete without an instrument that sounds like someone trying to stangle a duck?
     
  7. I would love to put together a group with the following instrumentation:

    Oboe
    Flute
    Violin
    Vibraphones
    Fretless bass guitar
    Drums

    We'd play nifty avant-garde jazz, I'd assume.

    How about a jazz combo with:
    -banjo player
    -acordian player
    -violist
    -bass player
    -pipe organ or hammond organ player
     
  11. A friend once saw a live drum-and-bass band with a bassist and drummer (duh), violinist, clarinetist, and trumpeter. He says it was the coolest thing he's ever heard (and seen) in his life.

    How about this lineup?

    Flugelhorn
    Trombone
    Oboe
    Clarinet
    Marimba
    Fretless bass
    Percussion (not a trap set or at the most a very reduced version thereof)

    sicplayer: by your name it looks as if you are a slipknot fan. i assume you play slipknot style music ( this assumption could be quite off ). why do you need a cellist?

    The main band I'm in, has 2 flutes, 2 trumpets, 2 saxes (Tenor and Alto) Trombone and 3 percussionists - as well as piano,guitar and bass (me)! The Trombonist occasionally plays euphonium and tenor horn as well!

    Hey man, I played bassoon for seven years in school, and it was hard work, but alot of fun. Wish I still had one to play.

    When I saw the Flecktones at the Warfield SF, they had a guest bassoonist, and he was jammin'! He traded off with the new saxophonist, whose name escapes me at the moment. Psycho-Funk-Fusion Bassoon man!

    :D

    Jeff Coffin. Did he do the Rashaan Roland Kirk thing with two saxes?
     
  20. I always thought it would be interesting to have a band comprised of a sitar player, an upright player, a congo player, and a violin. :)
