Hello, low-enders! IS anyone here playing (or played) in a modern pop cover band? Things like Katy Perry, Bieber and other Taylor Swift? Or more pop dance covers like Major Lazer, Calvin Harris or Tyga? I would like to start a cover band with a modern twist ( think 2010 and later). As far as instrumentation: guitar, bass, drum machine and vocals (who would ideally touch a keyboard). Somewhat like Boyce Avenue with more energy and a drum machine or Scary Pockets with a worse bassist By the way, check out Scary Pockets, they are great!. I would like to do some style crossing too (like put a song in a reggae or bachata version) and do a couple of medleys. Anyone has done it? How did it go? Do you good feedback from the listeners? What kind of venues do you play? I'm going with a drum machine to target smaller venues and easier setup. Did the idea go well with the singer and the band members? What kind of songs do you play? I'm afraid of getting into middle ground between acoustic guitar-vocal coffeehouse gig and a full-on band. How do you manage the energy in it? Special mention to @pklima who covered Sean Paul! Thanks a lot!
