"I tried to make a pitch for you to join the band, but the others guys aren't sure about it."

Would there be any difference in meaning or nuance between below:

a) I tried to make a pitch for you to join the band, but the others guys aren't sure about it.
b) I tried to make a pitch for your joining the band, but the others guys aren't sure about it.

    A) sounds a little more casual to me than b), and b) doesn't bother me all that much.
