I'm 18 and have been recently talking to some guys to come and have an audition in their band.
Problem is they're all 24-28. So that makes me feel really young and they've all done gigs and I haven't done any "proper" one's yet.
The last band I was in I was kicked out because:
1. They were 8-10 years older than me.
2. They said I was inexperienced.

I've been playing bass 5 years and am very confident in my playing. I'm just worried that these guys will judge me on my age.

if your confident go to the auditions and give it all you got and if they don't like you, theiir loss.

If they were real musician, they would judge you on your talent and ability to perform under pressure

your last band didnt kick you out coz u were young, they kicked you out coz u werent a good enough musician, age doesnt make a difference.

Go for the audition, you might find out theyre not as professional/experienced as you thought and so you would feel comfortable playing with them.

Well, a lot of famous, well known and older bands have players from a different generation almost... Foreigner I believe has jason bonham? correct me if i'm wrong lol...

But yeah, if you're confident, and they're in it for the music, not the image as it were then go for it, don't be worried or anythin...

Mick Mars from motley crue was at least 10 years older than the rest of them when they auditioned him, and look where that got them... He didn't scratch them off just cause he was old enough to be Tommy Lee's dad.

Do it. Age don't mean squat. I got enough of it to know.

I really doubt that.
It's attitudes like this that make me never want to be in a band.

The oldest memeber of my band is 25, I'm 19. My age wasn't a factor in him letting me join his band, it was my skill as a player. Age is irrelevant in my mind, just as long as your playing's good.

Well if they accept you, go to a few practises and ask them about it.
But best of luck!
