In my musician's eyes you are either a professional musician - or you're not...professional musicians are dedicated to their craft and to their project. They show up for rehearsals with all their homework done so everyone in the band can have a solid practice. You show up for shows prepared. You fulfill your commitments and obligations. You don't quit, lie, make excuses, or let your problems affect your fellow bandmates (to the best of your ability at least). We have had more people call themselves musicians trying to be a part of this band....then quit, flake out, not show up, burn out...wtf people????
We'll tell you what - we'll be much more clear in the future about the "type" of musician we're looking for....
