Starting new band in basel - musicians needed

Hey everyone,

my name is John and I've been living in Basel for about two years now.

Me and a German friend who has been living here for many years are trying to start a band to play blues/jazz/funk/fusion music. We've already found a saxofone player, he's a drummer and I play guitar and harmonica.

Basically, we are looking for the other basics to get the wheels in motion: a bass player and a singer, but also a keyboardist and other people to join in the brass section would be great.

We all have day jobs, so this is definitely a hobby (think 1 rehearsal a week and the occasional gig when we feel up to it).
If anyone out there is interested, please PM me and we'll talk more about the musical influences and how to move forward.

We already found one of the most difficult things here which is the space to practice - a great room very conveniently located right by the Basel SBB. We will share it with another band, thus making it even more attractive cost-wise (equipment can be left in the room).

After a long and winding road trying to start a new band, things are finally looking up. Hope someone out there is interested!
