So, I just created a revolutionary idea to form a band, and I need your guys' input
#1
An Internet-wide (worldwide) band try out campaign to recruit musicians to form a band. It’ll be promoted as an opportunity for young, creative, and aspiring musicians to join a band that’ll eventually become one of the greatest and iconic bands on Earth. It’ll be similar to answering a traditional musician wanted ad, but on a much grander scale.



To properly select the right musicians, the genres of music that the band will play will be displayed, and people can record themselves covering songs, submitting their own songs, submitting lyrics, submitting themselves jamming over a recorded backing beat, etc.



To convince people to trust my talent as well as traveling away to fully join the band, I'll connect them with industry insiders and record labels that I've been in contact with, I'll fully display my music chops, my bio and role in the band, my vision I have for the band, and my finances. Establishing music chemistry before the band members move here will also he a top priority. Half of the musician’s total traveling expenses (visa, airline travel, luggage) will be paid for, no matter the distance.



From the start of the band’s hiring process up to the band’s debut album release and beyond, people that are casually interested in the band, along with the musicians that won’t make it, will be able to follow (and share) the band’s progress through music releases, live show recordings, band updates, etc. which will eventually establish a growing fanbase as the band matures.



Goals:


  • Work with viral marketing company to help establish campaign


  • Have a place for the band members to stay, work, and rehearse


  • Work with a record label, to convince them to show interest in the band if the campaign generates hype


  • Work with a company that specializes in creating internet campaigns to make this become a big thing around the internet.


  • promote this on colleges campuses, music venues, etc etc throughout the world


  • Develop an easy, yet high-standard try out method, to find out who are great songwriters

the picture above would,according to the "do-gooders", represent not only child abuse and physical assault on a minor but also paedophillia because the litle boy has his pants pulled down!

whats wrong with forming a band the real way...you know, likeminded friends,jamming in a garage,looking to find gigs and maybe,just maybe, being fortunate enough to land a recording deal?

Sounds like Making the Band, but less interesting without the felon accused of trading homosexual favors for band membership.

Except this just a 21st version of the old fashioned way

Think of musicians answering an ad in a newspaper, but on a mass scale.

Well, think of it as a major way of doing it the 'real way'. You know, it'll be like people answering a Craigslist ad in a major way.

Besides, I'd say people flying from potentially Australia to here and making it happen sounds pretty real to me, you know. In fact it'd be a bigger risk to do it that way than some guy driving 15 min. from home

Probably not much point in answering the OP since the post is two years old... but I think this method of forming a band sounds an excellent way of ensuring that the whole thing is a clinical commercial exercise. Sort of like your own private Australian Idol. (or American idol, or UK Idol, or wherever you live.)
