Where to advertise yourself ?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Quick question, where on the inter web can I post a 'bass player available' ad that will actually get some replies? I'm just looking to get together with more musicians and diversify my playing as well as enjoying myself. Also if there a gigging band even better! But something along the lines of that .

Cheers

ML

Birmingham based if that helps. I have been on gumtree but can't find anything local that I'd be interested in :(

I used "Join my Band" to get with the guys I am with now, just make sure your advert stands out wherever you choose to go.

Partysounds.co.uk. Drop in to Robannas, Fatback, etc and put "bass player available" adverts up on the noticeboards. Same with the shops - City Music have a noticeboard, I'm pretty sure PMT do too.

That was the 1st thought that came into my head.

I've tried several people off gumtree and a couple off join my band... mind you there is no shortage of people looking for bass players in London.

I can honestly say that the only replies I've had to adverts placed anywhere have been from weirdos and time wasters .
All of my musical contacts have come from (real not internet) networking, meeting people at gigs, open mics etc.

And I think thats still the best way.

Get yourself to jam nights and things. It's a snowball thing, I moved 250 miles and didn't know anyone, found mostly time-wasters on gumtree, went to a few jam nights with my best chops and now I have a nice little network of good players who are also friends.
