"What the hell. Everyone needs a bass player in this town." -Guzzo
Any and all
Posted by Malcolm on October 23
Tired of the Same Old Sh*t? Always being asked to play crappy covers? You used to play in a band but stopped gigging a few years ago? You're tired of playing in your bedroom? Well, here's your chance to change all of that. I'm a bass player (but that doesn't mean that I'm not interested in you if you're a bass player, so keep reading). And I've been writing and arranging some songs recently, and would love to play them with a bunch of musicians that are not ass-holes, and now how to play with dynamics and feeling. If you're a super-fast shredder, that OK, but you'll need to understand the beauty of playing the spaces in between. Who was it that said that it's not the notes you play but the ones you don't. Miles, I think. Anyway - I'm an older white guy, and I've played bass in a gazillion rock bands over the years, mainly in NYC but also in my native England. I firmly believe that being in the rehearsal room, and on stage, with people I like is way more important than chops. Chemistry will create more magic than playing a zillion notes. I don't care how old you are, what your skin looks like, what sex you are, or any of that stuff. I'm looking for a core group of people who'd be interested in forming a band with the intention of playing live. Drums, guitars, keyboards, violin, uke, whatever. Even bass. If I find the right group of people, I'll just sing and let you all play. Don't expect to make much money. There's no money in original music. We'll be lucky if our rehearsal costs are met. (Do rehearsal rooms even exist in Albany? I'll confess that I don't know. We can always rehearse at my house outside of Albany.) I'm a flaming liberal, so if you voted for George Bush, we're not going to get along. (Sounds like an internet dating profile, doesn't it, and in a way, I suppose it is!) That said, I hate ALL politicians, almost without exception. And some of my songs are likely to touch on this subject. If this bothers you, please form your own band. By the way, I like pop songs. Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello are two who come to mind. I don't like drum solos, guitar solos that last more than two times around, and bass solos. Especially bass solos. Unless you're Mark King or Larry Graham. So tell me something about yourself. What you've done, if anything. What you're interested in getting into. I'd like to be ready to gig by the New Year, maybe sooner.

Popular working cover band in the Albany NY area, looking for a keyboard player. Our current player is phasing his way out, but he is a great friend, and will cover until we find someone to replace him. We are already mostly booked through 2015...between 85-95 shows per year. Some of the things that we are looking for are: 1) dependable 2) eager to work most weekends and some weekdays (and w/one practice per week) 3) good personality to mix with my band members 4) someone who is skilled at creating and sampling patches to match specific keyboard sounds of the originals (in addition to being good on piano and organ too) 4) a complimentary rhythm player to our bass and guitar players 5) someone who could play piano with our jazz combo during cocktail hour 6) ideally someone who can sing backups. Not a lot to ask, huh? LOL I am sure there are some great players out there!

We are a thrash metal/hardcore band or crossover band if you want to call it that. We are looking for a bass player. We have many influences and if the person likes the style that is a plus but we are open to bass players that play other styles as well such as funk or jazz (ect.) and would like to see how things go. Person must be committed and down to earth and have an open mind. We are not looking for someone to play the same exact thing as the guitar but for someone to add their own flavor to what we are already doing without completely changing what we are trying to do. There will be alot of room to experiment and we are open to ideas. We play fast and we also play groovy and also have some melodic material we are getting around to working on. Hope to find someone one here. You can contact Patrick if interested at 518-788-0876 (leave a message or shoot a text if no answer) or on the open hostility facebook page which is our website. We are in between the ages 18-23. Thank you.
