I’m playing in a covers band that is made up predominately of students from the local uni. We’ve had a couple of singers tell us that they can’t rehearse of commit to too many gigs because they don’t have time to fit it in around their studies. Is it just me or does it seem ridiculous that these guys are studying music, yet have not time to actually be musicians? I would have thought that gigging would be a major part of the course, or worth some extra credit or something….. Does this happen around all music schools or are these singers just making excuses not to commit to the band?
