What's the biggest age difference you've had among bandmates, and also, what's the biggest age difference between you and someone you've jammed with?

Also, how much do you think age matters in a band setup?


Personally, I've always been with musicians within a couple of years of my own age. I put up an ad on Craigslist looking for bandmates, and didn't include that I'm a high school student, and the people who E-mailed me about it didn't say anything about age, so I don't know what to expect.

16, biggest age difference is 2 years.

Although my music teacher planned for me and a few of my friends to make a band together and he's kinda old. Sure how what age but I think somewhere in his early 40's. He's a really cool guy.

Well in a lot bands where one of the members has died, they usually get young people to replace them for gigs and recording, the difference can sometimes be up to like 30 years..
#12
The lead guitarist in my band is 13, Im 17 and our vocalist is turning 18 soon.

There used to be a local band around here where all the members were in their 20's or so, while the drummer looked to be about 40

My band is roughly the same age. 4 of us are 16 and the other 2 are turning 16 in January.
#19
I'm 18 and I've played for a while with 50 and 60 year olds. The only reason it didn't work out was differing tastes.

on a regular basis, i perform with people in their 60's, and I'm 18.

biases about age eventually are dissolved, people will respect you if your chops are up to par.

The average age of my church band is probably over 50, I'm 16. You do the math.

I was in a band with my friend where his dad played drums. He was pretty much the official band dictator, and was well over 40.

I didnt stay in that band for very long.

My guitar teacher was in his 40's, and I've played with a few bands of guys that age. (not permanently, just for fun a few gigs)

In my own band, never more than a year, but the other day I jammed with this blues band on Beale street in Memphis and they were all like...60 haha. It was awesome!





i'm the tall white kid haha.
Too cool for a signature.
#33
I was 3 years younger than everyone in my last band. I was 1 year older than everyone in my first band.
#34
All my bandmates are within 6 months of each other.

Biggest age difference in a jam session would be 30 or so years difference. It was my friends dad who happens to be a brilliant drummer. We played for probably 2 1/2 hours. It was fantstic

I'm 20, and the other three members of my band are 32 through 36, I think. Our last drummer was also 20, so it evened out, but he left.

And they're all pedophiles

Me (bassist) - 16
rythym - 15
drummer - 16
lead - 18
singer - 18

i dont mind it.. since the lead guitarist is my best friend. We are musical soul mates.
#37
When my band first started out, 2 of us were 17, one was 20 and we found a drummer who was 28 at the time. He was a cool guy, but it was a bit odd.
Now we're all 19/20 in the same band and I am slowly starting another band with a 23 year old and we have a 26 year old hopefully playing bass for us.
Age shouldn't matter as long as you are musically "together".
