Hey guys. I have to say I got the call today and I am auditioning for a new band next week. Quick background: I'm in a band for over a year now (link in sig) and we're a reggae/rock 3 piece. Not my ideal music or the type I grew up on, but It's a great way to get my musicianship up and the guys have become like my brothers. My favorite music is punk/hardcore and I've been trying to get a good band like that going. So last week I see a CL add and It says "Established punk/hardcore band needs touring bassist, and possibly beyond." Come to find out it is this band from Boston called Disaster Strikes. So I reply to the add and get a response the following day saying their going to be auditioning people the next week but their looking for someone who can learn the songs quickly. The next day I tell my current band that there's a possibility I might be getting this gig and I'll be gone. My original band plays maybe one gig a month depending on what we can get. They both seem cool with it, but the tour is for mid June thru July, prime show season for our type of music. I get a call from the singer today and we had about a half hour conversation explaining to me the situation and talking influences and such. We set a date of next Tuesday for me to come audition and judging by the phone call, I think we're going to have some good chemistry. I'm really psyched about this opportunity to be in a band I not only have seen a ton of times but to actually be able to tour with. But my big question is what to do about finding a backup bass player to sub for me if the other band gets shows while I'm gone.
