ABOUT

Garage Rock / New Wave / 90s “Indie” influenced band Brenyama is searching for a dedicated Drummer that is equal parts passion and fun.

Google “Brenyama” for more info

If you think you fit the bill, it’s a vibe you can get down with, and can play a similar style to what we’ve got on the recordings, please hit us up and we’ll schedule an audition! Bonus points for sending a video playing along to a track.

We would like someone with great gear, reliable transportation, and availability weekends or evenings for practice.

Payment: We always split what we make at door evenly but not every gig is paid. We’re in it for the fun and if you’re joining the band you should be too.

A bit about ourselves: Duo songwriters Richard (Guitar / Vocals) & Maki (Keyboards / Vocals) recently moved out to Mesa, AZ from New Jersey and are attempting to rekindle a similar vibe to what we started out in the East Coast. We are in our 30s. Fully vaccinated so no worries there.

Some modest achievements we’ve made as a band include being signed to JEM Records for our first LP, Being invited to record at GCA Studios in Buffalo by Good Charamel Records (Owned by Goo Goo Dolls bassist and all around great guy Robby Takac) as well playing their annual Music is Art Festival on 3 occasions. Also opening for one of our favorite bands “Shonen Knife” a handful of times when they came through NJ.

Looking forward we have been asked to play the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool, UK next year for the IPO festival!
