tel us about ur band
How about you tell us about your band.
im not in one
broke, our guitarists parents have a fair amount of cash (more than either mine or the drummers families) I have more musical training in the classical and jazz area's as well as theory training than my two compatriots and our drummer is a metronome. we don't have a set style in the rock vain and seem to go aroung from pop-punk, grunge, and metal. we're basically "alternative", we play mainly originals and practice quit often. gearing up to play our second show at the atlanta Masquerade. hope to draw a large crowd.
see the first two links in my sig.
I play upright bass in a bluegrass band along with a guy who is amazing on banjo, and a pretty good guitarist. We haven't been playing together for very long, but it's fun! A good break from alot of other music I play.
2 guitarists, me (bass) and drummer.
Very rare that we practice due to differing school & work scheduals. We got together twice this week which was an accomplishment for us. We usually practice in the drummer's basement because there is a ton of pro audio equipment we can use and play through which means less stuff to haul back and forth. I was the last member to join, around Thanksgiving.
(we haven't got the domain name set up properly yet!)
Let me know what you think of the website though - I built it, and its all set to automatically update, so the gallery shuffles round, and the gig listings are kept up to date automaticaly - nothing worse than seeing last years gigs on a band's website!
Straight ahead, classic heavy rock covers. Regular gigs, great bunch of guys with no attitudes or aspirations beyond putting on a good show. Lots of talent there, and it's the music I grew up with.
I've only been with them a month or two - the old bass player retired, so I'm still the "new guy". The setlist will definatly evolve - we're all agreed to shed some of the ploddy numbers, and get some more modern fun stuff in there.
2 rythmic guitarists (one acoustic and one electric), lead guitar, bass/vocals, drums, keys. We practice once a week.

There are no links in your sig!
I play in a band with a guy who plays banjo. His friends call him Bela. Maybe you heard of him?
In the real world, however, I play in a heavy rock band with an electrical engineer, a fireman, and guy who works at subway.
Heavy metal band,2 guitarists,a drummer,singer and me.We like it loud so that a studio manager told us not to go there again We're getting ready for the first gig,fighting everytime we get together,drinking after the practices.Well I had a dream once but...
i forgot i changed it.
Funniest band ever...(because how much we fail)
Name: The Cunning Runts (We've changed names due to copyright laws about 3 times now)
Years playing together: 1 year
Members: Paul (drummer), Me (bass/guitar...because we don't have a guitarist i play the guitar for recordings until we find a guitarist fit for the band)
we can't find a guitarist that's not a d**khead.
all at my school, they are either bad or just plain d**kheads.
So yeah. Pretty crap band there
visit www.radiation.cjb.net, yes i know it's in Swe, go to "Media and download Saints And sinners demo! thx
Old-school hardcore. We're not really a band anymore. Our guitarist just passed away of cancer at age 19.
My "band" is a one-man virtual band right now. I have nothing new recorded yet, but the music is generally a strange cross of folk-unblack metal, jazz fusion, and Rush-esque prog, though I pretty much do whatever I want with it. There are a couple of songs I'm completing which can be pulled off on just the bass and vocals, but the rest is being done virtually.
My real band right now is a worship band out of my church, all I have time for right now, but time well spent for myself.
Goofiest band I've ever been in. I have a LOT of fun!
I just got a little jazz trio together. The lineup is trumpet, sax and myself on bass. We play funk/jazz and being the only rythmic, chordal and percussive player is quite a challenge but a whole lot of fun. It really drives me to come up with groovey driving bass lines.
