UPDATE: BOOMBOX are regrouping after an unplanned year long hiatus due to health, work and family issues amongst our ranks. We are currently looking for three key members to help move forward with our initial plan of world domination (lol...more realistically just the tri-state cover band venue and events circuit).
We are seeking a drummer with great timing and chops and an ear for detail to play the correct fills, rolls, etc. It is imperative that you are comfortable playing with a click track on almost all of our songs (there are a couple with more variable intros which we do not use a click but we mainly use it on every song). Also, backing vocals are most welcome and needed on at least a few of the songs but understanding taking care of both the rhythm and the melody can sometimes feel like juggling while riding a unicycle we won't ask for anything too vocally challenging if you cannot handle it. Experience playing in a volume controlled situation (e-kit) is also appreciated for casinos, weddings and more corporate situations and events although in live situations we have played many outdoor events and such where this is not an issue at all. If all of this is not too much to ask for...send us a message and let's talk.
We are also seeking a female vocalist with energy, charisma and stage presence who can handle a wide range of lead vocals on as many as 10-16 songs a show as well as strong primary backing vocals. If you can play acoustic guitar or percussion as well that is highly encouraged as well.
Finally and most recently we are looking for a dedicated keyboard player with a strong sense of tone, melody and knowledge of how to find a virtual array of sounds one would need when playing cool a wide variety of retro hits from the '80s era as well as a talent and dexterity in your fingers and at least some backing vocals are also more than encouraged.
BOOMBOX are already established and have been an actively gigging band prior to our unplanned hiatus so at least some prior degree of gigging experience is preferred for any of the above listed spots.
BOOMBOX Cincinnati is an established group of experienced musicians playing Pop/Rock and New Wave/College Rock music covers mainly from that fun and outrageous decade of fun and decadence...the '80s. We have plenty of prior gigging experience and we are building a following with this band. Our full repertoire consists of danceable Pop/Rock and New Wave/"College Rock" music from the best era of popular music...late '70s and '80s. We also have our own sound and lights as well as our own staging when it is necessary for the gig.
If you are interested in auditioning for any of our open spots please respond at: ateasemusictribute at ya hoo dot com with the following: your name, age, instrument(s), area of town, availability and very importantly a phone number with your best and worst times to call. Also, any video or audio demos showcasing any talents especially within our era and genre of music are encouraged. Thanks.

Members Of Band
BOOMBOX consists of:
Female Lead Vocal, Male Lead Vocal, Lead Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards.
BOOMBOX are established and have been an actively gigging band but are also currently looking for a utility musician with versatility for strong backing vocals, more than solid rhythm guitar skills and at least a novice background with keys (tenor and alto sax would be awesome as well but not any kind of must at all). At least some prior gigging experience is preferred.
As far as PA system goes we have more than necessary to power a performance at a smaller (300 or less capacity) venue and will rent additional equipment for anything bigger. We also use pro level personal gear as well. We have our own staging if needed. We are well set gear wise.
