    Hello fellow bassists--
    I am taking a survey to see how many "garage" bands there are and in which parts of the country. So if you could either respond to this or send me an email (vball_athlete@yahoo.com) that says:
    1. Name of Band
    2. Number of Members
    3. Where you are from
    4. When you started

    If you could please send me that or tell me that then you have just ensured yourself to FREE publicity and you are helping me out a lot. Thank you--Sally

  8. I'm currently in one semi-working band, and another band on hiatus that just won't seem to die; both in the Cincinnati area.

    semi-working band:
    24-Seven (rock/covers)
    4 members (guitar, keyboard, bass, drums)
    Not sure how long the band has been together, I just joined in November.

    semi-coherent band:
    Spitfish (punko-trippy lo-fi retarded garbage noise)
    3 members (drums, guitar, bass)
    Formed 1986; not so much a band as 3 lousy soloists who happen to be playing simultaneously.

    No album yet.
