I was talking with a singer recently who claims he has much experience and wants to get back into playing out again. He originally was looking for a full band but is now convinced that he cannot find a drummer or a keyboard player. His idea now is to have a core of guitar, bass, and singer, and have the rest be MIDI tracks. I just don't see many MIDI bands around, but I may be looking in the wrong places. One MIDI band I heard didn't have a real bass player and the sound was very poor. Someone has volunteered to set up all these tracks, but it sounds like weeks of work and I think he is getting in over his head on this project. Besides the potential of making more money, what is the advantage here? Seems like robot playing to me. This is supposed to end up as a class variety corporate wedding band thing, but I don't see how this can get off the ground with a fake drummer and keyboard player. Anyone have any experience or ideas on this? The singer wants to get together after someone else lays down the MIDI tracks and we get the set lists together on playing and harmonies. Something not quite right here.
