I had a little trouble thinking up a good title for this thread, forgive me. Right now, I play bass in a garage ska/punk band, nothing serious, we practice maybe once or twice a week. Its fun and all, but I'm starting to get burnt out on that type of music. Lately, I've had some good ideas about forming a rocksteady/reggae band that would sound sorta like a combination of The Slackers and The Wailers (before Bob Marley became the leader). Considering I'm a junior in highschool, I don't have that many options as to other musicians to play with, and frankly I have not played with too many that impressed me. I've asked around, and have found someone who wants to play keys and a rhythm guitar player. I have a friend who is very good at the drums, but has said he would rather play trombone (in a horn section). That sort of put me in a bind, considering finding a skilled drummer is hard enough, and finding one who wants to play reggae/rocksteady is even harder. I had originaly figured that I would get a keyboard player, rhythm and lead guitarists, drummer, and myself to play together and work on just becoming comfortable with each other and the style of music, and then branching out and attempting to find a trumpet, trombone, and saxaphone player. Would any of you have a suggestion as to a good way to go about finding skilled musicians other than just asking around school, or asking friends that play music? Sorry if this is a bit confusing, I'm just writing down all my thoughts as they come to me. Thanks for reading!
