NJ's Premier Rockin Blues Band" is seeking to replace our dear departing bass player. We're a well established four piece as follows:
1)Guitar and lead vocals,
2)Hammond Organ/ Piano Player and vocals
4)Bass and vocals
Unfortunately, Number four on the slot needs to be replaced as a result of circumstances beyond our control. So, this could be you!!!
We need a solid bass player who can play the blues with feeling as well as rock the house. Vocals are a huge plus, however, not necessary. If you like BB King, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Earl, Santana, Cream, Buddy Guy, Derek and the Dominoes, Johnny Lang, then you'll love playing in this band.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NO AMATEURS NEED APPLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The band consists of professionals with over 20 years experience each, has a huge following, web site, Demo CD, and gigs once to twice a month in and around the Central Jersey area for the most part, but also play in the North and South Jersey areas and an occasional well paying out of state gig as well. (Band is currently booked through September). Practice is every other week but would be more frequent as necessary to get you up to speed. That's up to you!!!!
The band owns its own rehearsal studio in East Brunswick, New Jersey. Top of the line Bass amp can be provided for rehearsals and gigs if necessary.
Age is not a concern for us, however, we do insist on professionalism (ie showing up to rehearsals and gigs prepared and sober). Chemistry between the band mates on stage and off is very important to us as well. If you believe this is a situation you can rise up to and are intersted in, then email me with your info including experience, playing styles, equipment used, age, location, inspirations, etc.... and any mp3s if available. If we like what we read and/or hear, we'll send you a link to our website which includes, mp3s, vidoes, pictures, songlists, bios, events calender, etc.... Then, if you're interested, we'll schedule an audition and see how it rolls.
