I don't really know what the purpose of this thread is. Maybe it's just an outlet for me to complain. But anyways...... I don't know why certain musicians have to be in multiple bands. Our guitarist is in another band, and it has become a real pain in the A** for both of the bands. Our singer has to be careful when booking shows that it doesn't fall on the date that he's booked with the other band. (I could go out and get us bookings at local bars/venues where I live, but I don't bother, cause I could end up booking on a date he can't play) We've already had to grab other guitar players to fill in for certain dates. I could be playing almost every weekend instead of twice a month (when I'm lucky) if it weren't for this. He's an awesome guitarist that can play everything from blues to flamenco but it's just starting to frustrate me. I've learned that whenever I join any more bands, I'm making sure that this band it everyone's first priority. (musically that is) I can understand having another side thing going on like a little jazz combo that plays at a club on Thursday nights, or maybe a recording project your doing, but I've learned, being in two bar room/weekend bands doesn't work. (Unless one band is only interested in playing a few dates a year or something) What have been your expierences?
