Hello all. I'm probaly going to be looking to join another band as soon as possible. While I would still join a 4 peice if one came up that I thought was good, I really have my heart set on a power trio. Mainly for two reasons. The first being: Money. If the band charged as much as the average 4 piece, that means I'll be walking away from the gig with more money. If the band charged less than the average 4 piece, that means that clubs would be a little more willing on hiring us when we are unknown. The second being: Being in a 3 piece, you would have to "rely" on each other more. If one person isn't there, there's no way to do the gig. A lot of times in my last band, our guitarist would just decide he didn't feel like playing the gig so he would stick us with a mediocre guitarist and our sound would suffer. (IMO that is) Then once, the mediocre guitarist didn't show up for a gig and our lead singer had to play lead, and we sucked hard that night. I really would like to play some blues in the SRV/Albert Cummings/Kenny Wayne Shepard vein, in which a trio would work great. Or maybe do some classic rock stuff like Cream or CCR. Heck, my dad was even in a Country/Oldies band that was 3 piece and it worked out fine. Just wondering who all is here that plays in a trio. What do you think about my ideas. You think a trio is the best way to go. (espcially for the style I want to do) What are your expierences.
