Hey, this is very off topic, but is anyone here in a band, or starting a band, play any instruments or anything? Just wondering, I play lead electric guitar in a band and am currently still looking for a band name :p. I want to use the money I earn if we ever get famous -.- to make a cat shelter which does not kill their cats! Its a lifelong dream...I want to rescue cats from death row from the RSPCA and other shelters. There is no death row at our shelter...ahem! And we would hold up to under ten cats at a time unfortunately, but of course the cost and such...wish me and my band and my best mate luck! For all the good of the cats out there...
=^-^=

The only bands I was ever in were concert band, wind symphony, and marching band. :)

I play the clarinet, saxophone, piano, and mallet instruments. I'm currently teaching myself how to play guitar (the acoustic variety).

Good luck with your band!

My partner plays drums in a band called Buddasbeli. He's a sh*t hot drummer, and can play in any style, but currently doing 'Pyschadelic Punk' with Buddasbeli.
He's been a musician for years, sometimes professionally. He's realeased several CD's, been on international tours, recorded at Abbey Road but....never made any good money :(
However, I still think you should go for it, you never know until you try, do you? :)
Good luck, mate.

PS, I also play the drums after a fashion, but no-one wants a middle-aged woman in a band :cry:

I have a couple friends in different bands, but I'm not musically inclined.

I always thought "Zinger" would be a good name for a band...

I'm a certified music teacher, so I had to learn to play all the instruments. My major instruments were voice and piano, however. Why not name the band with the shelter in mind? Something about cats. Of course the term "cool cats" goes way back to the forties, so you'll probably want to stay away from that.
Let's just throw out words about cats and you might get inspired by them.
Claws
Back alleys
freedom
sleepers
jump
home
fur
sunbeam
There's a start.

I've been in bands for 17 years and have had "my own" band for 13 years. I'm a drummer and singer by trade but I also know keyboards and guitar, also fluent in music theory in general. We play mainly for private functions such as weddings and corporate events. The nightclubs are more fun to play but private parties is where the real money is.

This is our happy "family" formal photo:

I used to play the piano and I took singing lessons for a while, but apart from that I'm not particularly musical. I've always thought that being in a band would be fun, though. Good luck to you, Spike!

I am the 2nd from the left on the top, far left on the bottom.

Yes, the whole point of the bar picture is to look unfriendly. Nobody around here wants to go out to a bar with a happy band. People probably think that if you have a happy picture you play "bubblegum rock" music. :lol:

Richo! You and the flames! Who would ever know what a nice person you are! But I know what you mean. Where would Kiss be if they had dressed in suits and ties? Well, they're not on top now, but you know what I mean. :)

Eurocat, it's difficult to play the French Horn in tune, so don't put yourself down. :) I really liked it, but as a singer I think my pitch was a bit better than some of the people in Brass Class. That and the violin are the hardest instruments to play on pitch, in my opinion.

Don't know if you misunderstood, I'm not the one with the flames on my shirt. I'm on the far left in that shot (black & white shirt), second one from the left on the "happy" shot.
