Start a Band

Tips, trials and thoughts about starting and building a band in Australia


My name is Steve. I am a guitarist/vocalist from northern Sydney and am a hobbyist musician. I’ve jammed with quite a number of fellow musicians over the years and am currently playing in an alternative rock band who have very recently begun gigging.

The information contained on this blog is primarily about the challenges my band and I face, things we’ve learnt from hindsight, problems we haven’t solved and suggestions for problems that we have.

Any advice contained within this site is provided to provoke discussion and thought and I don’t take responsibility for any use of this advice.

I hope that the information contained here is helpful and/or interesting. For those of you who’ve seen and done it all, maybe my words will send you on a trip down memory lane, reminding you of the time before you were rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you all.
