Starting my own band

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by martyman5000, Jun 5, 2007.

  1. I took some time and thought long and hard about some suggestions from this site and it's starting to work out. Last weekend I purchased a new basic drum set and posted an ad for a drummer and I've got one that is willing to jam at my home. I also now have a guitarist that is willing to come over as well. No more driving around and feeling pressure perform and I'm the one picking the material :cool: I want to thank everyone for helping me here...If anyone has any suggestions or insight into starting there own band or has started there own band I would like to hear about it. The drum set is a basic set with just a ride and high hat and I'm hoping that it will be ok for doing basic tunes.

    Good for you.

    The only suggestion I can come up with is letting the others pick at least couple of tunes they like to play. It would make them feel more of a part of the band. JMO

    If you're going to be the actual leader of this venture then you should spell out ahead of time exactly what you expect of them and exactly what they can expect of you... and make sure by your actions that YOU are the one consistently busting yor butt to keep things moving forward in ways that benefit everyone in the band.
