Apps: Form a band

Here are three apps that any budding musicians can use on their way to forming a band

Free, Android, Apple
First, find bandmates. With Vampr you make a profile of your musical tastes and skills, and then swipe, Tinder-style, through other posters, or wait to be contacted. You can chat in-app before agreeing to meet.

Free, Apple
Now to rehearse — even if you’re spread across the world. This app lets you jam along to nearly 4,000 backing tracks. Once you’re tight, get the band playing live at its sister site JamKazam.

Free, Android; £6.99, Apple
Ready to gig? This app holds all your songs and puts them into setlists to share with other members — so no surprising the band with your “new material” halfway through.
