ABOUT

Singer/guitarist Deadwood & bassist Chip (musical brothers who played together in Philly cover band, Slippery & The Skirtchasers, in the 1990's) have come together again! Along with brother/original Skirtchaser drummer Tweed and newest brother/guitarist Dave, they have become...

BETTER OFF DEADWOOD!

(A name coined by Tweed on the ride home from band practice one night. Props)

BETTER OFF DEADWOOD are a cover band of no equal! BOD embraces the musical underground from the 1960's thru to the present, with a mix we call "Classic Alternative". A celebration of great music not mainstream rock/pop/Top 40 hits...unless of course, that Top 40 music was so awesome as to merit it's inclusion. (example... Prince, you just can't deny true greatness.)
Hard Rock, Punk, Funk, Soul, Brit-Rock, New Wave, College, Alternative... we've even got a couple Country tunes in the mix. We might be old but we damn sure ain't a lame-ass "Dadrock" band!

THE 3 REASONS WE'RE ON BANDMIX:

#1 We had a keyboard player for a while who unfortunately had to bow out due to work conflicts. We miss keys and the sonic space they filled. Being a 2 guitar rock band is great, but the added musical versatility with keys...pianos, organs, strings...is addictive. We want that back. So...
SYNTH/KEYBOARD PLAYER WANTED!!!

#2 We love our brother/drummer Tweed but he too has real life commitments which limit his availability for band life. So...
DRUMMER WANTED!!!

BTW, If the drummer or keyboard player above, could sing too, that'd be cool. Currently, Deadwood is the only singer. And so...

#3 We need backups! And more! We would also like a female singer (or singers) for leads, backups, harmonies, etc...and it would be nice to give everyone a break from Deadwood's voice for a little while. FYI...We currently have 10+ female lead songs in our repertoire. Artists such as: Aretha Franklin, ABBA, Veruca Salt, Hole, Christina Aguilera, etc...done in our own hard rock/punk style, of course. (That's right, currently Deadwood sings the female songs too!) But those tunes & more would be yours.
FEMALE SINGER(S) WANTED!!!

So...if you are #1, #2, or #3,
& want to be in a cover band with dudes in their 50's,
& can make it to Galloway, NJ to practice twice/week and maybe play a gig/week,
LET US KNOW!!! WE NEED YOU!
