Goner Message Board / ???? / How Often Does Your Band Practice
Posted: Dec 21, 2006 12:14 am
I am aware that it may change during different cycles of activity and that various preconditions place limitations in different situations, but what's the average you shoot for? Has this already been covered before?

Band 1 - Hardly ever

Band 2 - Ususally when there's a gig coming.

Band 3 - Haven't played out yet, but usually every week.

Band 1 - every three months then a completely different backing band do the next practice.
My last band were once every two weeks.

We practice 3x per week without fail for about 3 hours at a time. If you've ever seen us live I imagine you will find that statement completely unbelievable.

Practicing rocknroll or practicing murder? Be more specified.

when we're in pre-production for a record - three times a week

when we're gearing up for a tour / breaking in a new member- twice a week

otherwise - once a week

We try to rehearse once a week but sometimes depending on the circumstances, every other week. How do people make new songs if they don\'t rehearse? That\'s when the songs come together for us.

We hope to practice someday.
Posted: Dec 21, 2006 1:23 pm
Santa & His Lil Helpers practice 3 times a year.
Posted: Dec 21, 2006 1:56 pm
We threaten to practice all the time
Posted: Dec 21, 2006 7:55 pm
With full band-we're lucky if it's once a month
With 4 outta 5-once a week
Unless Hart gets too drunk. In that case, it's "tomorrow".
Which is code for "next week".
At this rate, we'll play a show in roughly 4 years.

As I told someone last night... practice for cococoma is like what happens when you take a picture of a native american.

Don't ever use that stupid word again. Bands PRACTICE and play SHOWS. Dickwads and fags REHEARSE and play GIGS. Douchebag.
Posted: Dec 24, 2006 12:27 am
Wait, wait, wait...I thought dickwads and fags played CONCERTS?
Posted: Dec 24, 2006 12:31 am
Well, you are kinda right about that. We're both right.
