Brisbane Musicians Wanted - Where?

Post by number six » 12 Sep 2017, 09:00

Hi,
Just rejoined Ozbass after 5 years in the UK playing all genres.
I'll be back in Brisbane in November but have no idea where to start looking for bands these days.
It was 'Rave' magazine and shop noticeboards when I left.
I expected to see a 'bassist wanted/for sale' forum on this site. Did I miss it?
Can I get some pointers please?
Cheers, #6

The "Bass Player Resources" section of the forum is where people post band member related posts. Otherwise, I think most cities have at least one "Musos Wanted" type of Facebook group these days - there is usually a lot of traffic at those groups, so probably a good place to post as well.

Hey #6,

I've used this website before, I've had mixed success but worth a look. You do have to pay to be able to contact others on there (may or may not have changed) https://www.bandmix.com.au/queensland/brisbane/

Also, there are a couple of quality Jam nights (I'm not labelling these lightly as I know they're not usually re-knowned for quality) at the Press Club and the DooBop Jazz bar that maybe worth a visit.

I've played in the host band a couple of times at the BASEQ jams. Good fun.
Also, there's the Morrison jam and one at Royal Main at Goodna.
