I started a band today. (For real!)
Really, I started months ago, asking someone about messing around and trying out some music together. (Nope, but only because of the timing). And then asked someone else, and someone else.
Last week I saw both a cellist and a bass player, and threw the idea out. And then someone suggested another friend who I had only heard sing once in a play.
And it turns out I don’t need a “real” musician to take the lead here. The whole point is what happened today in the kitchen: looking up songs and singing together, trying out some harmonies and finding them half the time.
If I needed more proof, then there’s this: we both had band name ideas on the back burner already– bit you’ll have to wait until the first rehearsal to find out who we might be.
