Band without drum/bass...

If a band didn't have a drummer and bassist, and "simulated" these two in a backing arrangment, would you still consider them a band?

Just asking, curious for the opinions..

Are there any other players (e.g., horns, keyboards etc.) besides a guitarist??

 

If nobody, it would be a one-man band, which IMHO is not a band. FYI back when I lived in NY, I saw Randy Jackson (guitarist from little known Long Island/NY group Zebra NOT the guy from American Idol) do a similar one man show and it was quite good. I was impressed, he did "Kashmir" by Zeppelin and a bunch of other songs with "simulated" keyboards, bass, drums etc. Unfortunately for him, there were only 20 people in the place. :(

I used to play in a two piece group, me on guitar and vocals, an Alesis SR16 drum machine, and a keyboard player who played hand or pedal bass and sang. I don't think we ever billed ourselves as a band, just a duo.

I asked because I saw this 3-piece chinese pop band called F.I.R at my school and they were pretty good, except that I kept thinking "where's the bassist and drummer". It sort of killed some of the appeal of the band for me.
