Ok. If you could put together your dream band, who would you want in it? They can be living or not, famous, obscure, or just a local phenom.What type of band/music would you perform? What would you name the band?Would you attempt to get a "scene" going with your band and music? We talk alot about the gear we love and why, now let's hear what we think of the players who have inspired us on our music journey.

Ok... this is the big one... and we don't need anyone famous so long as they're at least very proficient with their instruments.
So... this is the lineup...

- 3 guys. No more, no less.
- Lineup is drums, bass and guitar(special rules below)
- Drums: Acoustic, electric, percussions, sample pads, anything that bangs, bleeps or jingles which you can play with sticks is good here.
- Bass: Chapman stick and any amount of effects. Stick to be used to it's full extent, not just to do bass notes.
- Guitar: Needs to have piezo and MIDI pickups as well to do acoustic and synths on the fly. Any amount of other pedals.
- All three guys on vocals. No matter who's lead or if it shifts on a song by song basis so long as all sing most of the time.
- Music style: Anything they can do using the above set of rules and equipment to its full extent.
- HOWEVER: NO OVERDUBS. Any trickery and combo using the instruments mentioned is allowed but NO OVERDUBS!
Allowed to track separately when recording in the studio, sure, but no overdubs. It all has to work live as on the album.

Now then... what do you think a band could accomplish pushing that envelope?
