How old do you think people should be before they start a band?

A simple jam session band? Probably after you have played for about a year. A serious band? I would say at least 18, but that's just me. You cant get into alot of bars unless you are 18+

What kind of place do you think would book a pretty young band?

Depends on the band's talent... Age is no more than a number.

I'de say, whenever you can hold a guitar.
round about... 5y/o...

seriously tho, whenever you can play ez stuff like.. back in blac of ACDC or something - then you're ready to, well.. start a band. not a great one, but still..

Well it depends on what you play. Rhytm guitar you have to be able to play like alot of power chords and double stops. Lead you should be able to play at least 4 scales in your sleep and articualation(hammer ons, bends,etc.), and single note accompaniments to vocals. Bass you be able to play chord roots and some good rhytm accompaniment. me. And if you play guitar always know simple chords like E,D,G,Am.

Well theres a band here in perth of 10 year olds or something round that, "The Flairz". They play every year at one of the big festivals over here and have released their own songs and everything. so its never too young to start a band, just whenever your ready

Whenever you feel confident enough.

The average age for a first band is probably 13 or 14, but there is no age limit really.

Most bands I see with members less than 17 aren't worth anything. But for reference sake... 13ish. Make sure the singer is past puberty!

Start as soon as possible, you'll only improve over time and should get better at working together as a band. Although the singers voice needs to have broke already really, unless its a girl i suppose!
