    On the off-chance, any established cover bands in Philly area out there need a bassist??

    Yeah, I've posted ads on craigslist, harmony central, and every other place I can find.

    I'm itching to rock again! :bassist:

    all i can say is welcome to philly and i'm sure it won't be to hard to find a band when you get out here because bassist's are in high demand

    I've had an ad up on craigslist two weeks and haven't had an appropriate nibble yet!! But I know it will happen. I was very specific about what I was looking for and NOT looking for.

    Had a promising email this morning. Checking it out.

    Thanks for the welcome

    Welcome to the Delaware Valley! It seems to me that there is a glut of bassists in this area. I have had an ad in Craigs for 2 weeks also and no bites :( In fact, 2 other Bass player looking ads were posted at the same time. Anyone else in the area noticing this?

    I have try-outs with two groups. There seem to be lots of bands looking for bassists, but not my type of bands (original bands, bands that want to tour, bands that want someone no older than 25 etc).

    But I have time. It has to be the right situation, or it won't be worth it to me. I am patient.
