  • Welcome to the Backstage Lounge!

    Greetings fellow band members!

    If you play in a band, this is the place to discuss all those things that are unique to bands - from finding the right personnel, to developing your own sound, crazy gig stories, advice on getting along with your bandmates, where you can find a muzzle for your lead singer's girlfriend, pretty much the whole gamut. Whether you're a weekend bar band veteran, an original indie band, just starting your first band or have been together forever... we've all probably got a lot to talk about!

    I also hope to eventually turn this forum into a resource that will help bands promote themselves. Down the road, I'd like to put together a gig calendar and other things that will be helpful in getting the word out about all of our respective bands. So stay tuned for more on that.

    A bit about me... I play guitar and am a co-writer in an independent rock band called What The...? We've been together for 4 years and feel really fortunate to have gotten together, as we get along great both musically and personally. More on that later too, I'm sure.

    As far as forum "rules," let's just stick with the obvious stuff: no posting porn, spam or flooding, and no personal attacks. Let's just show some basic respect for each other, and it'll all be good. Let's also keep things more or less focused on the topic! Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

    A "Backstage With the Band"-Forum?

    What the... ?



    "Backstage With the Band"? Where's Robbie Robertson? Are they backing Dylan tanight?

    Seriously (as if all that wasn't seriously bad enough), hi and how are you today, Miss Flier? How's things with your band?

    I hope that Erik makes some appearances over here, he'll likely make a great addition with his road-reports and updatish threads...

    Not to mention that it might come in handy to have someone who can speak, read, and write Blickum around... and, hey, he hates smilies! ehr, I mean, -cool-

    I need to get a band of my own, so that I'm not just crashing the party here... !

      Oh yeah, Lee...perhaps you wouldn't mind if I posted This Link...so all who were curious about this new location can just go browse the old location to see what it's all about, meet a few of the cast of crazee characters and whatnot.

                Solo artists can hang here too if they're lonely.

                And do let's keep things more or less on topic folks! I'll be starting some threads here shortly.

                  Glad to see you here Lee. Tedster too. I always enjoyed y'all at the music player forum. I hope CMDN will show here and update us about the Mr. Big producer gig he had going.

                        Okay. I think I'll be solo for a while, anyway. I just got myself an old-school 4 track cassette recorder with dbx noise reduction. Le's see what mr. doc can come up with.

                          Hey Lee - looking as lovely as ever

                          just thought I'd stop by and say hi! - you know, I'm just peeking in the doors at the new place...

                            I resemble that remark.
