Hello people! Today I had a couple of doubts. I am putting together a band again and I got the "honor" to be the band leader (or the one who cares to look for people). We had already a couple of people coming. The thing is that, today, I received an email from a girl who wants to join the band. There is still the vacancy for a singer so I answered her an email. The thing is that, since we had already people coming who want to be in a band as a hobby (perfectly understable) and our project is more serious than that, I started to include an extra paragraph in the emails saying exactly that: we are not going to be rockstars but we like to work. Then, I send them a list of 10 songs and they pick four. We play the four and see what's the feeling and if the singer likes us and if we like him/her. On the other hand, I am also looking for other projects. And when I contact a band, their emails are usually "Come to our rehearsal and watch us play. See if you like it and then join". Then, it makes me wonder: Am I asking too much for my auditions? I mean, I don't really see the point of asking someone to come to see my band playing without a singer... I need to listen to them playing or singing. What do you guys do in these situations?
