XLR8 was the top dog party coverband from 1986 to 1996. In 2014, Relay for Life in St. James Parish asked XLR8 to have a re-union gig to raise money for cancer. All original band member agreed to perform for the fund raiser with the door cover $40.00 per person. XLR8 had 553 crazy dancers show up that night. You do the math!
XLR8 is now currently practicing to gig on a weekly basis, however, we lost 3 musicians/singers who can not play on a weekly basis due to conflicting schedules.
We are looking for a female and male musician/vocalist who can provide back ground vocals and also share fronting the band for approx 10 songs with myself fronting the band for approx 10 songs. We also perform many Electro Funk Vocoder songs like Freestyle "Don't stop the Rock", "It's Automatic" and MARRS "Pump Up The Volume".

XLR8 is a New Wave, House, Electro Funk, Rap, Electronic 80's party band. If your not into 80's club music, you are not a fit!!!!
