Just curious, was the guy's post below mine just a joke or something? I noticed this was his third post only. I sent him a PM and two emails, and never got any reply!
You would think, that if someone puts a reply to a post advertising a genre where it is EXTREMELY hard to find qualified musician outside of New York or San Francisco, then that person might want to at least try to respond and find out what's what!
as it is, I consider it Ben's loss that he did not contact me. I can play darn near anything, and have an extensive background in jazz.
I will look elsewhere, and hope that next time people don't make fake posts like that.
it's really very sad. I thought I had finally found someone I could create exotica with, here in southern california, and it turns out to be a bogus post!
A waste of my time.
I wish I lived outside of OC sometimes!..look at all the great bands from other places, like Fisherman Vibraphonic, the Thurston Howlies, Ape, etc...all from outside the orange curtain!
You won't find any good exotica groups down here. It could be that we could have formed one, though..I was ready and able!
As embarassing as it to say, I actually know this Ben guy...he's a huge flake. A good musician (I've heard him play) but ultimately a flake. He had his roommate (that's who DollFacedDame is) set all this up for him in the desire to start some form of tiki band because he was too lazy to do so himself...she did pass all the info along to him and he didn't do a thing with it. So I'll apologize for him, because I don't think he cares enough to do so himself. It'd probably only get between him and his bottle of Jack anyways.
