    There was a thread on this awhile ago but I can not seem to track it down. If you use a web site or app to communicate, calendar or organize your group I'd appreciate a reply about which one it is, pros/cons and how it's working for you. Thanks

    I was having a recent exchange about our band's experience with Slack. Was that the one?

    My band uses Google stuff for the most part... it helps that we all have Android phones, but most of these apps should be available for iOS as well.

    Google Hangouts is our primary method of communication... group text messages were too unreliable, but Hangouts works just like text with the advantage of also being able to use it on a regular computer. When we schedule rehearsals and gigs, I put it on my own Google Calendar, and just add the other band members and it shows up on their calendars too. Google Keep for notes, which can also be shared with other band members. All of our rehearsal and gig recordings go up on Dropbox (there's Google Drive, but I'm partial to Dropbox). Google Sheets to keep track of the business end, and so on...

  6. Google has everything we need and more. It even has a separate "inter-band member" calendar (where we can put special details about gigs for band members only) and a "public band announcement" calendar that syncs up with our website for the general public.
