I live in an urban "hood" in New Jersey and everybody is into hip hop and R&B and wants to either sing or rap, but nobody is into playing instruments. Now, I love ska, reggea, and classic rock, even alternative. I've been playing the bass for 4 years now and mostly record at home for my own enjoyment or play at church on sundays. Now, I've been trying to find a group of people I can jam with, or practice with and ultimately form a band and record. Now I've tried the news paper route, Craig's list, and the ads in music stores but I either attract incompatible people, wierdos, or people who are not into my style like death metal and satanic stuff. Now even though my goal is to be the next band of gypsies I'm also realistic and just want a group of decent, honest, down to earth, and talented people to at least practice and jam with. What should I do?
