I'd just like to say a big thanks to everyone who commented on some of my recent posts and also let me join in with their ideas here on Kompoz. I joined my first real band in 1977 - not something I'd ever considered at the time but I was the only singer in town! Since then I've always had an iron in the fire with live work with the exception of a couple of spells of illness in my early 50s. I'm currently unemployed musically but looking to put an acoustic act together to cover artists like Free, Black Crowes, Darius Rucker etc but not having much joy right now. So I'm grateful for any opportunity to do something "real" no matter over what distance. Kompoz is all that's keeping me sane at the moment! I look forward to a few more years of warbling and hopefully collaborating with some of you talented folks again :-) Much respect to you all Dave

Doc, we're still using Morse code in the UK! 5 hours to get to Ikea and back which is a round trip of 50 miles! Heavy goods crash on the M6 motorway. Grrrrr. BUT we DID get that mattress! :-) And Red - yes music is all about creativity and fun. I last did anything lyrically with a band back in 1981 so I'm a little rusty but it's great to stretch your grey cells now and then!

Cheers WillaWay, I can't believe there are no takers for an acoustic rock act in my neck of the woods!

Musicians are scarce here in my area as well, I'm in a rural area. This is why I enjoy Kompoz so much, gives me the opportunity to work with so many talented people. (Great for introverts too!)

wow thats unusual ..... normally people jump at good singers available .... what's the live music scene there like?

Davethesinger   commented 1mo+9dy ago


Pretty good actually Red, But maybe Old free, Bad Co, Black Crowes, Whitesnake etc doesn't float their boat! Not planning on doing the usual tired old covers of All Right Now etc - I like to take lesser known material, strong songs though and re-vamp them.

Sorry to read that you have no luck finding people for your Cover Band ! But i am sure you will have allot of fun here and maybe the day will come and you give up on your " Band Idea " because you ask your self " Why should i do Music with the same three or four people again and again when i can do music with many many people from all around the world everyday on Kompoz ? Have fun !
