I'm not talking about deps and bands formed on the fly for a one off show, or about being a replacement. How long was it between all meeting for the first time to your first show? (Assuming material written or its covers. Also assuming a greater than 60 minute set). In your current or most recent band. Edit:- Since this forum is to spread experience, A suplimentary question would be: what is the best method/schedule to get the band "trained".
