I am 17 and me and my 2 friends actually have a band. We have about 2 yrs of experience together and are talented musicians. We have already started writing music but we do not have a singer so it is hard without one.we live in Suffolk county (Smithtown) and are currently looking for a singer. We would like to be alternative and our greatest influences are RHCP, foo fighters, envy on the coast, rush, Rage against the machine, Jimi hendrix, zeppelin, and much more.
#6
I live in Smithtown also. Do you go to east or west?

Edit: You're in Louisiana Sky. I saw you guys play at the East battle of the bands. Can't remember who you are though lol.

Yo dude i go to east and yes we are louisiana sky. Come on you gotta remember us. We played Party Hard(andrew WK), cowboys from hell (pantera) and Know your enemy(RATM). and by any chance do u sing? cause that would b amazing.
#10
hey whats up Im 16 (seventeen in a monthish..wow that makes me sound younger but w.e), looking for a band as either guitar or backing vox or lead vox. I like to play simplistic, yet solid music with a strong sense of musicianship. Main influences are the White Stripes, the Decemberists, AFI, anti flag, Blood Brothers, Atreyu (more of their older stuff), Pink floyd, Muse, Placebo, Les Paul, Hendrix (some of his cleaner stuff, not that his way out there stuff is bad), joy division as well as others.
#12
yeah definatly, id love to audition, um what kind of music do you play and what kind of range do you want?
EDIT: also wherabouts are you and do you want more of a clean, broadway or lounge style or more of a pushed garage rock style. Finally, are you looking more for arrainged vocal parts or just notes that sound good with the song.
#13
Well to start off we are leaning to an alternative feel sorta. We have some stuff written so we can show you when you audition. The range really doesnt matter and you dont even have to be amazing. We are just looking for someone who is decent and somewhat knows what they are doing. We are in Smithtown out of the island and once again you'll hear our sound wen you audition. And about the arranged vocals im thinking we r just gonna find a melody that sounds sick and harmonize to it. So we will have to see where that is going. And just to add we defineitly have a strong sense of musicianship because we are all actually taking AP theory in school, chorus, and also play other instruments which we are pretty damn good on.
#14
and do u have AIM by any chance b/c it would be alot easier to talk over that. If you do wats ur sn?
#15
ok cool, i pmed you my aim.
also, wow im also taking chorus and AP theory cool (though i just learned to read for realsies this summer, but im getting the hang of tonic supertonic etc. relationships on my own so the course should help me expand what i know alot). Um do you know where smithtown is on the island (as in how far from penn?)?
#17
oh bassman i got your pm but couldnt figure out how to send one back, so its cool best of luck.

soon to be sixteen year old guitarist and soon to be sixteen year old drummer looking for a guitarist or bassist or singer, if you can do any combination of the two that'd be good . I, myself, am influenced by bands from the late 60's to early 90's and a newer band or two such as AC/DC aerosmith alice in chains anthrax black sabbath black label society van halen zz top lynyrd skynyrd guns n' roses velvet revolver iron maiden hendrix stuff like that, but im open to play almost anything. My drummer is influenced by newer screamo like silverstein thursday and a bunch of other bands i don't know (being im not into the stuff)
so if anyone is interested let me know and we'll talk
we are located in the western new york (buffalo niagra region)
