I've been looking for a while to get back into a part-time working band, and now have two opportunities to choose between: Band A - currently a duo performing a variety of music styles probably best described as adult album alternative. Guitar player is good, and singer is good although not very dynamic. Playing a coffee house every couple of months now, but ready to slowly expand the band to include first bass, then drums. They have enough material for a 2 hour coffee house gig but will need to add a bunch of songs to work up to clubs. I like the material, although there is a learning curve (for everyone) since many of the songs are complex and not covered in the original keys. Band B - currently a full band performing blues and mainstream classic rock. They have been playing clubs, but need to replace their bass player, and are also considering adding a keyboard player. The drummer is good and we really locked in at the audition, guitar player is good although I'm not sure everything he plays really fits the feel for each song, and the singer is average at best. Blues and classic rock is not really my thing, but they are basically ready to go and I can get up to speed and integrated into the band pretty quickly. I'm leaning slightly toward Band B mostly because of the drummer and the fact that we would be ready to start booking again in a short period of time, although I wouldn't invite my friends or neighbors out to see the band. I wouldn't hide if they saw me in Band A, although it feels like background music right now. Not sure if a drummer will fix that or if the lack of vocal dynamics will always be an issue. All other factors (travel time, rehearsal commitment, personalities, etc.) are fairly equal. Any thoughts from others who have struggled with the decision between two bands?
