I already answered you in the PMs, but just so other people can see:

I'm also interested in playing and I play the bass. :)

Hi Adrian abd Alessandro

 
Thank you for replying and your interest.
 
Are you based in GVA and how long have you been playing?
 
As explained to Alessandro, the main goal is to put a band together for playing gigs, not only rehearsing. There is plenty of material- the songs in my page are very old and I’ve working and recording other more actual stuff.
 
It’s been quite a while since I’ve played live and I believe it is time to perform again.
 
Yes we might rent a rehearsal room but it will be convenient to understand each others interests and capabilities first, don’t you think?
 
If you have something recorded of yours to share, it’ll be   easier for starting. I can share more tunes also.
 
Best

Hi Alberto,


I'm living in Grand Lancy - so basically Geneva and I've been playing for something like 10 years.


Actually, my answer was to Alessandro and his proposal of some casual jamming with the possibility with something more serious growing out of that.
If you are looking for musicians to play some of your original pieces, then I might also be interested in that, but it would be nice to hear some recording or get a general idea of what you have in mind, first.


If you want to have an idea of on which level I'm playing - I don't have any recent recording with a band, but I have snippets of me jamming with other people, that I could PM you.


Ciao
Adrian

Hi Adrian

 
Thank you for your response.
 
I’d like to chat with you, so please call me at 0799470319
 
Maybe we could set up something initially at my home studio and eventually find a place to rehearse with drums if that works.
 
Best

Hi Adrian and Alberto,


I saw your thread: I played the drums for a while (still have an electronic drum kit here in Geneva) and recently switched to the cajon. I don't know for how long I will stay in Geneva, but I would like to find some people to play music with. Let me know if that could work!


Cheers,


Floor

Hi Floor,


Thanks for your reply!
If you have your own kit/cajon, then we can just simply meet up one of these days and jam a little if you want.
What kind of music do you like?


Cheers

Hi Adrian,


yes I have my own cajon (my drum kit is in a storage space at the moment). I've just been practicing some random things, and translating drums into cajon for simple songs. i.e. up&up by Coldplay or Golden Touch by Razorlight but also just some simplified salsa and reggeaton. If you have any songs in particular I can already have a look! But yes, would be nice to jam! Do you know a place? Or somewhere in a park or at Plainpalais could work as well I suppose!


Cheers,


Floor

Hi Floor,


So regarding the location: I'm not so sure whether a park is so ideal, because it's kinda cold and I also need electricity for my amp.
If we don't play too loud, I can offer my apartment.


Regarding the songs: There is not a lot of bass in up&up, so I don't know how much I can do there, but I can come up with something.


Regarding song requests from my side: With my last drummer, we were actually improvising a lot instead of covering specific songs or we'd just cover by memory. If we do specific songs, it's probably best if we do the ones where I play the bass and sing. For example Sitting at the dock of the bay by Otis Redding, All my loving by Beatles or Proud Mary by CCR.


Cheers

Hi Adrien,


sure, that could work - though you would need to have some patience as I've never played cajon with others before. Drums yes, but not cajon. Let's just give it a try some time: when would suit you and where is your appartment? And are Alessandro and Alberto still playing?


Cheers,


Floor

I live in Grand Lancy - I'll give you the exact addresse via PM.
For me it would be best if we play either on a week day after 6 or an a Saturday afternoon.


Alessandro would need a drum kit and I think Alberto is looking to start something more serious. Which means: If someone who plays the guitar or keys reads this and feels like jamming a little bit, you are very welcome to join!

Hey! How about this monday evening? I have a drum kit, but nowhere to install it, and it is electric so it would need an amp...

Hey, so looks like I won't be available for both Monday and Tuesday, sorry.


So how about the other days of next week?

No problem! What about this sunday? Early afternoon? Unfortunately after that I will be mostly away until the 1st of March.. So I completely understand if you'd rather wait until then..

I hope that I found a band by March, so likely I will no longer look for musicians by then, but if you want we can play this sunday anyway - jamming with other people is always fun. :)


I should be available the whole Sunday, so you can pick a time.

Sounds good.
I've send you the address.

In case someone else wants to join last minute (a guitarist would be great...), let me know via PM.

Dear all, 


So great to see muscians finding each other here in Geneva. 


I have a rehearsal space for rent if you are interested. We are a group of 3 bands who have rented a space from the ville de geneve and we each take one weeknight per week and share the costs. We have drums, PA system and amps that we share as well. 


Let me know if you are interested. 


Best,


Daire

Thank you again, 


Alessandro
