    I'm not old enough to remember T-Rex as an acoustic duo...so odds are you are going to get some old coot...Ads can work..at least they eliminate the illiterates...

    "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting '...man, what a ride!'

      The problem with the Internet is that it's too global. I just saw an ad for a great songwriter who's looking to put together a band, but he lives in Bolton...

      Seriously - I'd hit all of the locally-oriented sites you can, I wouldn't rely on any single site to get the word out.

      Have you tried putting up an ad on Craigslist?

        I Googled "Bolton UK open mics" and found several venues. I also checked "Manchester open mics" (Google said Manchester and Bolton are about 12 miles from each other). I'd be more inclined to attend some sort of jam session or open mic night. The difference between someone calling themselves a musician and hearing them actually play music can be huge. I need to hear a musician to know if their playing strikes my fancy. Some do. Many don't.
