    The first and foremost step that you need to consider before you decide to go on making a Female Rock Band is whether you have the right musicians to do that. Your band should include a line of really good musicians who should know how to play well and improvise while performing. These band members would be the cause for creating good music which would be eventually supported by the vocals of your lead female singer. If you do not have good musicians, look for some. Advertise that on social networking platforms such as Facebook, or ask your friends if they know people who can play well and are looking to form a band. Note, it’s important to have good band members to lure a good singer to join your band.

    Look for a lead female vocalist who has the strength and versatility in her vocals to make your band sound good. She would be the voice of your music and therefore, you should be very choosy in selecting which female artists would you like to represent your band. Set up for auditions at your place or a garage where you do your gigs. Make sure you advertise the position through your friends and other people you know around the neighborhood who can recommend a few good artists.

    Creating good music is one thing, but making people hear it is another. Book a gig at a nearby garage or club to perform your cover songs. A band is not considered to be a good band if it doesn’t have a following, so start with live performances. A good show will definitely spread the word of mouth about your band. And who knows, you might even go mainstream one day.
