    Hey Guys,

    We are looking for like-minded musicians to start jamming with in Pune. As of now we require a bass player and a drummer.

    Our influences range from Robert Johnson to Muddy Waters, from Jeff Beck to SRV, and just about everything in between.

    We primarily concentrate on original compositions. We are also open to the infusion of funk, jazz and R&B elements to our sound. However our core remains at acoustic/ electric blues of the 30's to 60's.

    So do get in touch if interested.

    Sincerely Yours,

    You know Pune is no longer a 5 km stretch of Peth area ...

    I know what you mean:)...

    But location's not really an issue. We have a few jams rooms available in and around the city. We can work something out eventually. But I stay near KP and currently we jam at Law College Road if that helps.

    But that apart do get back to me if interested. My contact details have already been provided above.


    Well we're not exactly looking to form a Blues Band. But a sound which is heavily influenced by the Blues. There's no need to limit by way of categorization as of now.

    Ah, I can't be in, I'm in Delhi, mate xD

    I'd love to learn and do something like soul jazz - Charles Earland, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith.

    But a blues band with alpha1 playing? ...I'd travel half the world to hear that. xD

    It's a shame you're in Delhi... We could have worked on some interesting fusion...
    Possibly experimented with Country Style too...

    I was, pretty hardcore in that.
    I guess 4-5 years back.

    But right now I am far too above this genre business. Today it feels amusing (to me) and almost childish to limit your musical preferences and tastes based on genres.

    IMO, its more of feel thing. I like certain piece of music because of the melody or the harmony or the rhythm or the riff or the hook or the beats ... can be anything - abstract also like the emotions it evokes ...

    Well as an example - today while driving to work I was listening to Ghulam Ali.
    I don't think ppl on this board would even know him.
    And yesterday I was listening to Morcheeba.

    And on the weekend I was listening to Godsmack as well as Chopin.

    Unfortunately my musical prowess has declined to an extent that even the simple blues and rock'n'roll that I could play ... I cannot now.

    Well, your musical thinking pretty much sounds like mine.
    And my playing is limited to classical pieces, so far. Rock or blues is out, unless I hear the song -> transcribe -> learn it as it is on record.

    Hi... I am a lead guitarist and I see that you really don't need one. I can play pretty much anything on leads but I think I can drive some inspiration If i can come to watch you guys play and share some ideas. Blues is something that really got me going and till today it continues to fascinate me. Wont be any harm if I get a chance to learn from someone right?

    ^ surprising that you guys (when you were in the band) never tried your hands on blues for performance.
