Band Dating

Do you have issues with only meeting boring musicians with egos the size of really fat skinny jeans? Or having a jam and some toss rolls out a 20 minute solo that drones without being good like drone music? Maybe you talk to people excitedly about a new Deerhoof album only to be asked ‘have you heard the new Simply Red album?’ in return? Or do you like Simply Red and want to meet other mums? Or do you fancy actually forming a relationship with a hot fellow band member because nobody uses Myspace anymore? TEA has the solution! Sign up to our new Band Dating service and we’ll put like minded awesome musicians together to form bands.

How will it work? You fill in a form to tell us what your approach to writing music is (and things like availability). When we find enough people with roughly similar outlooks on making music, we’ll arrange a practice room for you. We won’t tell you who will be there until you turn up. After the first practise, you will need to arrange further practices yourselves.

NOTE: This may not work! We won’t be responsible if you die or injure yourself or your credibility as a result. We are in the process of trying to arrange free practice room hire but if not, we might have to ask people to chip in to cover the cost. This is not a money making venture for us, we just want to see some new bands being formed in Medway.

This form is completely confidential – nobody will see it other than TEA.
