Also, I'm curious what you think the ratio of, for lack of better terms, pros and amateurs are here. I know those labels are pretty objective, but based on my experience from CT, it's about 25% pros to 75% amateurs. Not criticizing anyone's commitment or anything, mind you, "You do you", and all, I just was hoping for more nibbles than I've gotten. Has anyone had more success elsewhere?
Honestly I think the ration is closer to 300 to 1 sometimes. Don't take it personally. We all get the same results at Bandmix because professional musicians usually know other professional musicians outside of a website.
Everyone has a life to live while trying to get their music career on-track to wherever they want to go with it. So it's not only professional vs amateur, it's far vs near, part-time vs full-time, travel vs local, rock vs country, young vs old, originals vs covers, democrat vs republican, druggie vs clean, cool vs nerd, and the list goes on and on and on and on....
It's amazing that anyone can form a band and keep it together actually. Don't give up and you will eventually find a band. Let's hope you're not on social security by then!
