Why Dont you start your own band. You would be the boss and do what you want. Build it and they will come kind of thing. I always tell my students to start their own projects. You will get more work doing your own thing than relying on other people. People want new stuff.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Tell them you need to get paid simply even to practice. $100.00 a rehearsal should be a good start, then tell them no less than $500.00 a gig. Lol money helps one find time...

We had a keyboard player that after playing with us many years as part of the band decided that the band should be renamed from "band name" to "keyboard guy and band name" and that he should get paid more than the rest of us..


2 weeks later, we had a new keyboard player..

Soak 'em for every penny! AND demand to change the name of the band to your name, what a great idea!

All kidding aside Boaz, I still think you should give it a go, dude! Go play with those guys and see what it's like to be in an ensemble/team with such a flexible instrument like the Stick...

The Stick is quite interesting in an ensemble it'll throw you for a loop worth it by all means.

Post Re: Your opinion needed-Joining a band
well just to conclude:

i recorded one track with the stick ("traveler")
even though i decided not to go for it - i sent them the track

they also decided not to go for the stick -so it was a mutual decision

can't wait for their first release though :)
