Band to Join.

ABOUT

Hello everyone.

My name is Rob, 33 and I am a bass player/guitarist.

I have good equipment, skill and a decent work ethic.

I am specifically looking for something exciting and original to be a part of.

I am not interested in two/three chord wonder bands. I am looking for DYNAMIC music, which means instruments playing loud AND quiet, sometimes guitars cut out, sometimes bass and drums cut out etc.

I would like to join a band where the bass has a clear role with the music (And not just lip service).

(IE: If I cant hear myself due to a loud guitarist who insists that turning up to 10 at all times because it is "my sound man", then there is no point in me being there. )

I refuse to be part of a backing band for a solo performer. I want to be in a band where I can contribute in songwriting. I will only consider bands who have a drummer(!) in place.

I am available most weekday nights and weekends. I would preferably like to practice in the center or east of London, though it is not a deal breaker.

I feel that some genuine original dialogue should exist between bands and possible auditionee's. If you can only be bothered to respond to this well fleshed out profile with a copy-paste/no content message then I am very sorry, but I find that pretty disrespectful and shows that you are not truly serious about finding the perfect person for your band
