I am currently in the process of recruiting 6 musicians for a new funk cover band. In two weeks, I have filled 2 of the 6 positions using my current contacts. Not a bad start, I suppose. But the leads are slowing down from my online ads on various sites. (FWIW, I'm in the Boston area.) In your experience(s), what would be considered a "typical" amount of time to put a band together, from start to finish, assuming you've used up your contacts and must resort to online ads? What recruiting methods am I missing in my blind spot? Do people ever go 6 months without any takers? Longer? I know there are many variables that will affect the answer to these questions, but I just want a sense of what I could be up against.
