Indiana & Ohio Musicians...

I want to get an idea of the effectiveness of the "Band Members Wanted, Needed & Available" forum.

Did posting here help you find musicians for your band, or a position for you in an existing band?

Just a few questions for you; What style(s) of original music? What type of instrumentation, and/or vocal performers do you have in place? What's the age range and experience level of those involved? What are the goals of this original band project? Do you have writing & rehearsal space? Does the ba...

Well, I'm one of the "old geezers" who posts on this board now and then. I was a guitarist in various incarnations of the Nightshift house band during it's first run in the early to late 80's. Back then Kevin used to pay the band $100 per show. There was usually four to five of us in the band, so it...

I'm gigging with two USA made Parker Nitefly guitars; a swamp ash "Southern" model, and a mahogany "M" series. The Southern is my new #1. It looks like the bastard love child of a 52' Fender Telecaster, and a 95' Parker Deluxe! I love the feel of the Parker necks. They have a compound radius of 10-1...

The humor, not unlike any black comedy is not in the actual EVENT but what it alluded too. AA was pointing out the irony of a local bar that caught fire. NOT "hey look at the victim's o...

So is it ALL "gallows humor" that you dislike, or is it this one that offends? I like virtually all types of humor, and I love to laugh. (Just ask the guys in my band) I also tend to agree with your previous comment that "tragedy + time = humor". However, virtually all the victims of the fire in Ne...

I'm sorry he was offended also, but someone with 18 posts in a year isn't exactly a contributing member of the online fwm community. Without sounding crass, the feel and flow of this forum is dictated by its active users and probably isn't going to change without more activity from people who think...

Besides no one was hurt and they will be getting a nice insurance check i am sure. And they do plan to rebuild. A bummer? Yes. Tragic? Nah. I am freinds with them all there and I think they are all doing fine. I still feel the comment by a.a. was in poor taste on multiple levels. In addition to the...
