No and it never will. Trying to find band members on CL is just like trying to find a girlfriend on the internet...it might be fun and it might be cool for a minute but it will more than likely not work out in the end.
joey.

Which is still equally entertaining in my book, though.

Oh definetly, never said it wouldn't be entertaining......

YOU: "looking for a bassist and drummer for 70's style influenced rock/metal ala Pentagram or Black Sabbath have practice space available in chester county"

RESPONSE: "Hey man I play Bass and I'd love to come Jam"

YOU: "Cool man can you tell me a little about what kinda jams you like, also what kinda gear are you playing"

RESPONSE: "Sure man, I played in a cover band for a while but that was lame, some bands i'm really into at the moment though are TOOL, A7X and INCUBUS. I really like INCUBUS basslines so I try to play in that style. I play a fender squire P-Bass but I don't have a bass amp at the moment so i've just been using my friends Marshall Valvestate. Let me know when you wanna jam and we'll get it going.

YOU:




Thats a basic rundown of how all of my craigslist searches for bandmembers went.

All I could say about craigslist is that every impression I got from people online was pretty much dead on. It's like anything else, dudes who are legit with chops and work ethic are usually chill about it. If you pick up a rock star vibe, just take a pass. Another thing, if you're not in a metropolitan area I think your chances are slim, but you never know.

Worst thing ever. Hardly any responses and none worth following up on.

Agreed...I've only tried it once when looking for bands to play with here in Happy Valley during school, but no luck at all finding anything worth it.

This is pretty much what I figured, I didn't even attempt it. Just wanted to see if it actually worked for anybody.

i found one band member from it. it took forever to find him, but it was worth it. more often than not, the responses you get are fuckin terrible. we tried out a dude who told us he had decent gear... he brought a peavey practice amp

my old band found our vocalist on craigslist. or he found us, whatever. but he worked out great for a few years til the band broke up. since then i check occasionally for interesting bands or people to jam with. i've basically given up on starting bands with people i don't know though. huge waste imo.

Howdy,

I am a 22 year old gay drummer looking to start a metalcore/electronicore/screamo band a la The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack!, A Skylit Drive, and Scapegoat.

Both myself and others I know have had good success with the craigslist musician section. Its just a matter of sifting through the crap as well as saying what you really need to say in your posts/replies.
