I am in desperate need of a band but I cant find one. I tried posting adverst in the Musicians Ads section of this site to no avail, which has given me a very crazy idea indeed.

Now I need some help with this idea. So here it is:

On a Wednesday afternoon at about 1.50pm everyone at my university will walk through the main areas of campus to go to their places of business (there are no afternoon lectures EVER on a Wednesday). Since Im looking for a band to join or start, I would need to play my guitar loud and proud right outside the main campus area.

Problem:

I wont be able to plug into a mains outlet as I wont have access to one. Also, I dont want to run wires through any buildings or go near the library incase people are doing self study and I dont want to disturb them.

My question is, are there any devices that are portable that I can use to power my amp, my pedal and my guitar, where can I buy it and how much am I looking at spending?

I have this whole thing planned out, I just need this one "thing" to enable me to do it.

you should buy a portable energy generator...hardware stores should have them...about 100bucks...i think, or steal some uranium...

Find a big battery with a standard plug thing

Portable amps

im pretty sure you can get portable power supplies as well that you plug in at home to charge up and then take them elsewhere.


I knew they were called something. Thanx dude.

*Slaps head for not realising portable amps exist*

Loud guitar would disturb people a bit though.

The main campus area will not have any lectures going on at the time. The Library is at the back end of campus so I cant go there even if I wanted to :P

The guy in U2 just put a flier up at highschool and look at the members he got. I heard this on a mini doco during some ad break, not a huge fan, just an example.

please don't stand in your uni and play guitar!!

it's a real muppety thing to do.
just find like minded musicians. no-one will approach you because people will be intimidated and not know what to make of it.

i certainly wouldn't go up to someone. it's not very rock n roll.

Making money in the process is never a bad thing....
