any musicians moving?
« on: July 28, 2005, 01:46:52 pm »

I'm 20 years old and in school as a jazz composition major. If I drop out(since school is a hell of a lot of money) I'm strongly considering joining the FSP, but are there any other serious musicians going? I wouldn't want to move and end up having to abandom my love for playing music because there are no musicians around(particularly jazz). I play acoustic and electric bass. So any members who are serious musicians?

um, yup!  ;D

I'm 30.... been playing bass since I was 15, drums since 12, and guitar since 14. I have all my own equipment and axes. I'm *DEFINATELY* going to want to play shortly after moving.

Music-wise, I listen to everything from old swing to Pantera (RIP Darrell), and enjoy it all.

I am also 30. I have been playing the guitar(acoustic and electric) since 17. I also have some experiece with bass too.

I'm trying to practice on my banjo too.

I have plenty of equipment and guitars of my own. Probably too many actually.

Listen to just about anything and like most of it. Main interest is alt-country.

It would be awesome to play with like-minded politicos. Boy, would that be a first!

My wife is a musician, some 33years.  She teaches at two colleges and one university in Wisconsin.  She and I are moving to NH in about 12 months.

I will have her get on line tonight and give some background.  She is very interested in starting up a group.  We have started and run a school for chamber music and had a faculty of seven.  I will let her talk about it tonight.

Music here in NH is abound amongst players but sadly the nearest constant Jazz Gigs are in Boston.
I currently live in central NH so its 1.2 hrs into the city but the drive is well worth it for the nice living and ability to be involved with some Jazz masters. There are many Jazz cats who play for the love of it and not as much for the performance aspect so regular playing with skilled players is not an issue. Now JHazz Composition??/ hmmm Where are you currently enrolled
Again being in this area does allow great access to the Berklee Northeastern and Longi and while It would be much to much of a commute for regular attendance their break time and summer education schedules do allow for continued education and exposure to a myriad of top players

O yeah drummer/percussionist 16 years  Trained in classical guitar, 6 years keys.
 I own one of NHs only musical instrument building companies at http://www.Willoughcraftdrums.com and specialize in Jazz instruments at http://www.repercussions.org

Drummer here, also 30 years old. I just moved to Manchester on July 16th. There was a concentrated effort a year or so ago to get as many FSP musicians together for a jam session. Varrin Swearington (also a drummer) was the guy behind it.

I am mostly into prog-rock/metal and hard-rock metal and would like to get a band going in that kind of styles, but I am open-minded when it comes to music.

Anyone single FSPers interested in moving to Manchester, please feel free to contact me. My landlord is very FSP and libertarian friendly.

i have considered moving to NH, and i am, in fact, a musician. i would be far more interested if i knew of anyone who would want to open up a venue with me. possibly do a bar, sandwhich shop, or something along those lines... a place to do all ages shows and 18+/21+ shows, for all different styles (punk, mod, jazz, hip hop, indie, emo, whatever). right now im living in new york, but i honestly cant stand it. new hampshire doesnt seem to be too large of a state, so maybe a venue of this nature can be set up in a central location, providing easy access state-wide. i know in michigan, when i lived there, kids would travel 2 hours to see a show. it was somethign to do. see good bands, see  a diverse set, have fun with like minded people, sell their zines or home-made patches...whatever.. have bands on weekends, have dance nights or movie nights during th eweek, or just have it be a bar or coffee shop... i dontknow. the sky can really be the limit, if there were a limit to the possabilities...

is there a market for this kind of venture in new hampshire?

I strongly believe that there is a music and art market in NH that is not being fulfilled as of yet.  We can either create a market - built it and they will come, or find it and meet the demand with our supply - music and art.  Many times people [consumers] do not know what they want in  a  product or service.  When that happens it makes for interesting marketing.

i really think the important thing to think about is finding ways to appeal to younger audiences. a venue of this nature would be  a perfect place to advertise for, say, the free state project and liberty loving groups. even if its just pamphlets, or those lovely little political quizzes.  socialists basically have free reign over the youth market, as libertarians tend to preach to predominantly older audiences. it seems to me that one of the largest minority groups innew hampshire is the latino population. latino hip-hop is hotter than shhhh right now. would we likely see some of the older cato boys playing latino hip hop as a form of outreach? a venue of this nature has large potential, in terms of money-making, getting ideas and idealsacross, and if nothing else, being a good time for people. because, really, politics and money dont mean a thing if you arent enjoying yourself...

I'm not much into the opera, symphony stuff, but I definitely want to take voice lessons and learn how to sing.

I want to form a band, call it So To Speak, sing/scream into a megaphone, and open for my favorite band of all freakin time: Chevelle.

In fact, I'm more into the hard rock stuff, so Chevelle would be my heaviest influence.

All I need now are the guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer ;)

Oh, and a voice coach.

Never heard of Chevelle you say? http://www.chevelleinc.com

Enjoy it suckas!

well, since my parents just informed me they're not helping pay for rent, my truck, school, basically everything, my college life is pretty much gone unless i plan on taking out mega-loans. my goal is to move to boston next year and go to school in berklee, maybe instead i'll just live in new hamshire supporting this and just gigging in boston once in a while. i don't know, i just signed a lease where i'm moving so any plans of moving anywhere else are pretty much shattered. but i'll keep my eye on the free state project so if i'm just wasting time here, might as well go there.

I'm a tolerably decent guitarist, and I sing fairly well.  I'm glad to see there will be lots of musicians moving, because it's definitely time for freedom folks to start spreading the word better through music.  The FSP needs balladeers!

I mean, really, how can it be that Christian Rock is 100 times more influential than Freedom Rock?!?!?!?!
