View Full Version : Finding members?

I'm in a band but we need a drummer and singer. We play heavy metal but no one else around here does. Where is best to advertise and how should we go about it? We live in a small town in the South of Engalnd. Any help?

Put some ads up around your town, and you could also make a thread in the musician ads here on UG, also, you could try hanging around music shops in your area (If there are any)

ads are the best way
put flyers up at music shops
try contacting any drummer or singer, if they want to play music they might join up

Try this. Its already found me a bunch of potential bands to join and people to work with.

I cant help you find people, but I can make a helpful suggestion...
WRITE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN WITH YOUR OTHER GUITARIST!!!
(I assume you have one, you stated "we")
When you find the other guys, its going to make your life so much better musically.
I just spent 5 months searching for a drummer and a bassist, so by the time I found those two,
I had a ton of music already written, and that helped SO much.

We already have about 25 songs so we're fine in that department, i constantly write so thats all fine. Its just case of finding people. Thanks for the help.

I live in a small town in the South of England, and know a fair amount of drummers and singers who may be willing to work with you?

Get some posters up in local music shops.

Ask in music shops if they know of a local music forum. I'm lucky in that Aberdeen has a forum dedicated to the local music scene, so there's a good chance people can get bands up and running on there. I hope there's one where you live for ya ;)
