The Fine Print Disclaimers


Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Other.


We found our drummer last month (August) and would like to thank those who auditioned the past couple weeks for their interest.

We still have a quasi interest in adding another singer/songwriter of the same genre music we are doing i.e. originals with an indie Beatles like feel. If interested, send some demos of your songs with you singing the songs. Then we'll see if there's a match. Again, Ive been searching for the Lennon to my McCartney. So expanding to 5 players would be okay since I could switch up to other instruments likes keyboards and acoustic for certain songs.

About the band:
This band is more or less a project and does not gig often (7-10 a year) and only plays one set with 1 or 2 other bands on the bill (If you have played in indie bands in the past you know this already)
If this sounds like your speed, your inquiry is welcome. We have a FB page as well as songs on reverb nation site if curious.
