I play drums in a band called The Colony. We're a very new band from Concord, CA. My best friend/band guitarist and I attended BM for the first time last year and we really got inspired to play some stages this year.
Our music is hard to classify. It's very unique I think. A strange sub genre all it's own. Alternative but I don't like that word. Rock but not that generic.
We only have two songs recorded right now but we could probably fill a 45+ minute (maybe an hour... we're writing more...) set of original material by the time BM rolls around.
Two songs are up on our facebook page here:
We are a three piece incorporating drums, bass, guitar, electric violin and of course vocals. Our bass player switches between violin and bass. Our guitarist sings. I also play a bit of solo piano during the show.
I think our band has a pretty big sound and we would love the opportunity to play through some massive sound systems if any are hosting live bands. (something I think is really lacking on the playa. (Not knocking the Dj's, I am one myself, but... there are definitely enough.)
Our sound requirements:
(for bigger sound stages this is the optimum setup but we can certainly work with less. small stages all we need is vocals)
3 vocal mic inputs (lead, special effects mic, backup/bass player)
Enough mics for a 4 piece drumset
2 bass cabs micd or direct box from amps
2 guitar cabs micd
1 violin amp micd
Direct box for a stage piano
Stages and sound camps, let me know!
I accidentally hit new topic instead of reply the first time I posted this. That's why it's out on the main board as it's own thread. I know the frequent forum users can get finicky about that. My bad. Not sure how to delete that first one.
