My husband Kenny Brent and I used Band Mix for 10 plus years and it really turned out to be something we utilized and had success with. Finding the right musicians quickly when something unexpected comes up or when a long term project was coming up, we found Band Mix was a site we automatically posted on and many times we found a great fit. The profile information is set up so you can really read between the lines if you know what I mean? It was easy to see if someone was hyping themselves to be something they were not. Example one drummer who responded to us had his profile as professional, practiced all the time, could play all genres, a golden find. But he had only played 4 gigs and had pretty much had no live stage experience and Kenny still talked to him and he had no clue to anything Kenny was asking. On the other hand the MAJORITY of the members were upfront, professional and almost by the 1st message you could get the vibe if they were going to be the one. It's so simple to set up account, and profile covers everything you would want to know before an interview if you were a company. So applicants are basically a phone call and/or possibly a practice away. The free site is great for struggling musicians (arent they all? Lol) and after you make a few bucks, sign up for the upgrade and instant access to available musicians not only in your local area, but access to musicians all over so it you need to meet up with one across the U.S. for a gig you are in need of a musician there. Thanks Band Mix for saving us in many situations throughout Kenny Brent's life and career!
