Organize Your Band: Availability
Discuss individual members’ availability to rehearse, record and tour- this one question filters out musicians who are so ensconced in day jobs, school or other responsibilities that their membership in the band impedes the band’s forward progress. It is best to know this well in advance. Alot of bands don’t worry about this until they have booked a tour. And then realize, usually the week before leaving, the drummer cannot possibly tour because he’s a stay at home dad. Be sure all members of a band understand common direction and intentions and are frank, open and honest about schedules and responsibilities.
