Starting a new band, and there is just one problem...

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by Gazman, May 18, 2017.


  1. So I put some notices out on social media to form a new band, playing "get of your ass and boogie" music.

    4 responses come back... all women, 1 plays tambourine (when drunk), another plays maracas, third lady has some triangle experience, and the last has no musical talent, but is offering to be a founding groupie.

    Problem is obvious, what do we call the band?

    Never mind what you call them. Just be sure to video the first rehearsal and post it here.

    How about: "Wipe that smile off your face, young man!" ? Actually, this this the ideal situation. When anyone asks where you're going, just say "band practice". Everybody will think you're a dedicated musician. Keep going to "Practice" even after the "Band" folds. ;)
