Chequered Past


Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Drums.


Drummer and Lead Vocalist/Rhythm Guitarist Wanted!

Hello! We are Chequered Past, a cover band playing 60’s, 70’s 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s classic and danceable pop / rock. Our age range is 49 to 52 years old and we are a Keyboardist/Vocals, Bassist/Vocals and Lead Guitar/Keyboardist/Vocals and have recently lost our drummer.

We are using this time to refresh the band. A solid drummer is needed to drive the beat and keep us in time. You don’t have to be flashy, but your meter needs to be solid! If you can sing, that is an added plus. We also are looking to add a lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist. We currently split the lead vocal duties, but a truly strong lead vocalist would be great. If you have guitars but not any amps, do not worry as our guitarist has multiple amp setups for stage and that is not a problem.

Chequered Past also has a unique tie to high tech and rehearsing. The remaining members are all involved in upper management positions in high tech companies. Family considerations and business travel and meetings make rehearsing difficult at times. We are using JamLink boxes to rehearse remotely when we have stretches where we cannot get together in person. You can see the JamLink demo here at: .musicianlink. The JamLink boxes work great if you are within 80 miles of each other.

The general vibe of the group is to have fun and make it easy to rehearse and enjoy music. We are not built to play every night, but look to get out 12 to 24 times per year for small clubs, wine and art festivals, fairs, etc. We recognize the constraints of working and the all important family time. We are looking to enjoy playing music and giving performances the people enjoy.

So, for you vocalists and drummers that are interested in playing out once to twice a month and are intrigued by the freedom of rehearsing without actually having to leave your house on occasion, contact us here at Bandmix.
