I am a singer, self taught and fairly good. How do I find a band?

I have been singing since I was in my teens. I spent some time singing in my late teens 16-18. I have no connections now, I have no agent, I have few prospects, and I know very few musicians that are serious about becoming more than just a garage band. I am not talking about striking directly at the big time yet. I want to do some local work in bars and such. What do you suggest?

Here's an example of what I'm referring to, as to using myspace as your promo tool. Here's a pic of my son, Bles aka Young Gentleman

Get a myspace profile. Post pics, bio, and some recordings of your voice, maybe different styles of singing. Use myspace as your promotion and advertizing. Here's a link to my son's myspace profile, this works for him, he's a hip hop artist, and performing at The Whiskey on Feb 11, 2007 Bles aka Young Gentleman http://www.myspace.com/bleshiphop
