....and a few of them have come down to meet us at a gig. We're holding audtioins next week, and have about 15 drummers slotted into a very tight 20 minute each schedule. We screened everyone on the phone and feel we did a good job this time. Last night one of the guys showed up at a gig. He told us he was 40ish yrs old, but looked really young. We're happy to know lots of guys who fit this description - and I hate to sound trite, but we really do want someone who fits the vibe and looks of the band. You can check out our site below for an idea if of what I"m talking about. Anyhow, this guy's clearly in his late forties, and looks like he could be my father. He was a nice guy and might be a great drummer, but we're not going to use him. Please don't flame me on an "age" thing here - we have a lot of good reasons for our deciding to go with a younger looking guy. Anyhow - our slight dilemma. The drummer is slotted into an audition spot. Do we waste his time and ours and have him come down - or do we tell him we don't think he looks right for the band? I personally would prefer if a band called me and said, "dude, you don't have the look we want." But I don't know if everyone else feels the same. I've gone on a couple of auditions where I knew they made their decision before I even opened my mouth, and I didn't like it. What would you do, and if you chose to cancel his audition how would you word it. Thanks.
