So basically you have a month the find a new drummer and train him up for gigs. It shouldn't be too hard if you have alot of work booked.

Id advertise for a new drummer now, and ask the ex-drummer to play the booked gigs up to the end of June or so to give you more time to train up thr other guy.

Well Im glad my accidental double post sorted that one out

In situations like this I feel that there's an obligation on the leaving member to ensure there is a smooth transition to the next guy to minimise damage to the band. To demonstrate this I recently had a bassist quit because she felt embarrassed if her jazz school buddies saw her playing 2000s pop. She refused to play any more gigs. This left us 4 weeks to find a new bassist and train them up for a $1000, 4 hour gig. Not cool.

I feel the same way now. I think i'm going to draw up a contract for everyone stating that if we have upcoming gigs or recording they can not leave unless fired or a replacement is properly trained to replace said member
