Putting a band together late 20s, 30s and up

Postby mer989 » Wed, 30 Mar 2011 9:53 pm

Hello!

I am a thirty one year old female from Spain moved to Singapore a few months ago. I play drums for fun and I am looking for musicians to put a band together, for jamming and fun - not to get too serious, I am not a pro at all.

Likes are PJ Harvey, Death Cab for Cutie, Cat Power, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Eels... just to mention what comes to my mind right now, but many more and I am pretty open to others.

Please contact me if you are interested and you play any instrument guitar, base, singer, trompet,... anything!

Maria

I've been playing on the guitar on and off for a few years, nothing too great, mainly trying covers - Clapton, U2, rock etc. Would love to try jamming with a band, so if you are planning a session, would love to come and see if I'm good enough to participate! :)

Hi Maria, I used to play in the percussion section but its been some years so I don't think I will be particularly useful in your jamming sessions. But I do enjoy the process of making music so if it's not too much of a crowd, do you guys mind a local audience sometimes? :)

Hi Sjoz,

What instrument would you play?

We now have guitar, bass, trumpet, piano, drums and looks like a singer is interested!

Thanks,

Maria
