"Battle of the Bands" is a scam. Here’s why…
I’ve been playing live in bands of one stripe or another for over 20 years. Rock, funk, ska, jazz, punk, metal, folk… you name it, I’ve played in that kind of band. I play bass, mostly. I’m not the world’s greatest musician, nor the worst, or at least I’d like to think so.
I have done this long enough to know that I won’t play in “The Battle of the Bands”.
In every band, there comes a time when the band gets an “amazing offer” to play in a “Battle of the Bands”. There’s always some members who want to do it, and some who don’t. I’m firmly in the latter’s camp. This blog entry will explain why.
