Playing in bands and writing your own songs
« on: April 16, 2009, 08:04:35 PM »
There is a thread headed the Music thread on the Lounge board ... don't bother with that one. If you've a keen musician and are playing in a band already, or wanting to join a band or even form your own band, this thread and some of the ones on the Forum's Computers & Tech board may be worth a look. Post details of your forthcoming gigs on the Calendar and use the Forum's Classified section if you want instruments or have instruments for sale. If you are seeking other musicians to join you to form a band use the Wanted board on the Forum's Classified section.

It's a good idea to use more than one site ... this should help to build up your fan base. Use MySpace (BTW please post your tunes) or some of the other social networking sites and advertise gigs on those sites. Other sites where gigs may be advertised, and instruments and other equipment bought and sold, are Free Ads NI ( http://freeni.forumotion.com ) which is a site owned by DonnyBoy who is a Forum member, Belfast Gumtree and fastfude.org which is used by a number of musicians in the Northern Ireland music scene. Instruments and other equipment are occasionally offered on the Freecycle sites ... therre are several for places in Northern Ireland including one for Belfast
