I am an experienced drummer currently playing in a local Winchester, Va based rock outfit. **WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A NEW FRONTMAN** See ad below.
My personal profile info is the same below the ad. Thanks-Rob
We are an established classic/current hard rock band out of Winchester, Va. We recently lost our front man, and are looking for a long term replacement. We have gigs booked out to the end of next year, have professional gear, and ready to add more gigs to the schedule once the missing piece is added. We look to play approx twice a month and are focusing on some of the better clubs in the area. We range in ages from 30 to 50. We're currently covering radio friendly danceable rock from the 80's ,90's to current from bands such as: Priest, Ozzy, AC/DC, Van Halen, Bad Co.,Whitesnake, Shinedown, Metallica, Theory of a Deadman, STP, Guns N Roses, UFO, Chickenfoot etc,etc. We're willing to adjust our set list to your singing style and understand that whatever songs we play have to suit your style and abilities in order to make you sound your very best.
Looking for someone that is rock oriented, professional minded, preferably a tenor, prompt, learns fast, comes to practice prepared, has their own transportation, creative, doesn't like drama or bs, and has the desire to get things done. No drug or alcohol issues (meaning - someone who knows what their limits are as far as partying so as not to affect their performance and/or waste our time at practice). Our drummer sings also and is able to cover a few songs as well, so this should be an easy opportunity for an experienced vocalist to be worked in quickly into a great new band. If you play guitar also to do some fills that would be a plus but not necessary.
Karaoke singers, please understand that we are looking for an experienced vocalist with some gigging experience under their belt, capable of singing 3 or so 1 hour sets a night, 1 night a weekend, someone who knows how to pace themselves throughout the show, take care of their throat and knows how to hold back and let loose when needed throughout the night so as not to blow themselves out. Also understand that other than cheat sheets, it would be expected that you learn and memorize your lyrics, just like the rest of the band has to learn their parts. If you feel like you can accomplish this, please feel free to contact us.
We have plans on working on original material and recording. Please contact us for more info and provide any demo material, audio, video, web pages if you have them. We'll reply back with the same.
