I have a question, Why do people post that they are looking for a band and never answer any messages that are sent to them? I have posted many messages looking for different band members and very few respond back. Asking for a friend

Because they are long gone and not paying attention to their Bandmix account. Try to filter for recently active people. Even then, you'll be lucky to get a response. For reference, I've been looking for a drummer since 2015 for my current project. I've messaged over a hundred people on Bandmix alone. We ended up playing onstage to drum tracks I commissioned from a world class drummer in another country. I don't remember having seen any of the drummers (with profile pictures so I could identify them) that I contacted onstage in my area. I suspect "not perfect" for them is the enemy of "good enough" since most of the people who did respond suggested that they wanted to play within a specific narrow genre and would therefore pass. Same thing for a bassist. 2015 to now was plenty of time for our singer to learn to play bass. Best of luck to you, though. I hope you do find the musician(s) you seek.

And as I often explain to other musicians trying to find traction with clubs and other musicians: "No one wants you until everyone does". Can't expect anyone in the music world to care at first. Most people seem to want to go straight to leading the parade after it is already underway.

The best thing one can do is find a way to move their project forward while the musicians that suck play their living room.
