There has been alot of discussion on tmp about subs, cost of travelling, committment and the list goes on. I'm in this boat, would love to play but struggle with everything else I have to deal with day to day. Would having rehearsals once a week instead of the 2 which seems the norm attract more players to a band. Has it worked for any bands out there, capitalising on semi retired players who cannot committ? I would certainly consider going back to playing if this was the norm. I know rehearsals are essential to keep the band at a good level, but surely it would be more benifical to have 1 rehearsal a week with a full band then 2 with half a band. Any thoughts?
