My MOM has asked me to scout for some ideas. Here's the scenario. We're a "church in a box" currently meeting in a school auditorium. Our praise band has one of each, keyboarder, drummer, guitarist, and bass (me). When one of us has to be out, we just make do without for that week and it has worked well enough. I can play either bass or guitar and our guitar player can fake it on bass well enough to get by with some root banging. We're about to merge with another church that has a nice big building but no Pastor. They also have the remains of their old praise band. There are two guitarists, a beginning bass player who played for about 6 months before they stopped using the band, a drummer, and another keyboard player. They haven't played as a band in about 8 months. In order to keep everyone happy in our new combined expanded family, the MOM is trying to figure out how she could do some kind of band member rotation. Since we've never dealt with this issue before, we're all clueless as to what would work best, whether it be a weekly rotation of various players, monthly rotation, or for several weeks/months at a time. Another alternative would be to build two complete bands and let them each take turns as a unit. We'll only be having one service a week, with possibly a Sunday night service being added next year. so that's the only time for people to play for now. Any single service church players out there that are a part of a rotation schedule? What works well? What doesn't work so well? Thanks!
