    um.. well... lets see.. u need a percussionist.. and a bassist... (i argue thats its etter to get ur keyboardist ot put an autobass part - not coz bassists are bad - its just that 99% of all of dem do too much naatak... at least in my experience....)

    then u need a place to jam - ull jsut meet there and start playing...

    hmmm from see'ing all the above suggestions , i guess thinking and believing in the name 'Seelan' will get you started ...

    lol .. well first just need to know that you guys are fully prepared , have plenty of knowledge too .. then get the appropriate players needed for the genre of music you guys play and yeah then start practicing ... attend gigs , see the way other bands perform , see the audience reaction ... learn from that .. and apply for some small gigs first or some school concert .. then move on ...

    cheers ....

    You need musical (not personal) friction. Thats gonna give the band a lot of creativity and a sound of its own.

    dude ...
    jamming/practicing everything is good ...
    but unless and untill there some level of proficiency ... "the band" will lose the enthu ...

    so dude first of all make sure that your ppl should know how to play certain songs ... then combine to form a band ... and then go forward from there ...

    what comprises a band? ... as u said u have two guitars and one keyboard ... thats gr8 ... u require one drummer or any other percussionist ... tahts it ... u can do away with bass if your keyboard player is good ... or one of the guitars can play bass ...

    once u form the band ... decide on a few songs practice individually and then practice together ... and during these jamming sessions u might come up with new ideas ... go ahead ...
