Major Lineup Change: Female bassist/vocalist!


Recommended Posts

We recently decided to look for a full-time bass player. The guy who was with us since April was actually more of an ongoing fill-in member. His priority was his own one-man band show (vocals/lead guitar with backing tracks). At first, it worked out okay, but he is starting to get more and more gigs now and so are we, something we all predicted might happen.

 

Since we would have to be turning down gigs for those nights, look desperately for a fill-in and hobble through the night or simply go three-piece (and leave out the keyboards and two-guitar parts), we decided to find another bassist. Luckily, one was available and looking to play in a band, playing primarily local gigs (that is, not travelling very often or very far). This is something we all agree on, due to the high gas prices and relatively stagnant prices given for bands in the bar scene.

 

It's going well so far and we are preparing for our first gig with her. Advantages with her in the band are:

 

  • Female member (for some reason, this always seems to attract more attention than all-male bands :p)

  • Plays her instrument very well (not a guitarist-turned-bassist but a real bass guitarist)

  • Can sing harmony well (always something I bitch about, a lack of great harmony vocalists)

  • Along with singing harmony, she can sing lead as well

  • The songs she sings bring a whole different dimension to the band (modern female country songs)

And the best part is that she is on the same page with the rest of us regarding outlook, ideas about song, presentation, band vibe, etc.

 

So, I am stoked! :thu:

You know what they say about girls who play bass......

 

 

They have to be taught how to play every single note, but after achieving world-wide fame & massive success and become millionaires, they're still too stupid to send a lackey out to score drugs, so they're the one who gets busted by the cops when they drive their shiny new Mercedes into the 'hood to buy crack?

I HATE it when that happens....
