I've been playing bass for over 25 years,stopped playing for a few when I had kids, but now I've been playing steady for about 6 years. My skill level is not a problem,I can play at least a bit better than most bass players in the local bands in my area. I usually get asked back after most auditions. I've been in 5 different bands recently & all of them have either split up because of one member being uncommited, late notice cancellations for rehearsals/ gigs, etc. or personal,family or work problems. How do I find the steady gig with commited players who also want the same thing? I've run ads on craigslist but there seems to be more flakes than real musicians!
