I realize many of you play with more than one band.
How many of you play with the same group of people but book as two different bands, with different styles to cover different markets?
I did a variation of this a few years back. We had a 6 piece variety band that played private clubs (the Moose/Eagles/Elks circuit) guitar/vocalist; keys/male vocalist; female vocalist/some keys; sax/vocalist; drums/vocalist; and bass. Four of us also booked under a different name to play a more rocking mix of music - guitar/vocalist; keys/male vocalist;drums/vocalist; and bass. It worked out very well. I did most of the booking for the variety band and drummer handled the rock band. We were in constant contact, so it worked.
I wouldn't mind doing this again in a new project and was just thinking that others must also do the same thing.
