SEEKING A DRUMMER:
We are Chester Avenue, a cover band based in the Wilkes-Barre area that plays a mix of classic rock and pop with some dance music and more current hits mixed in. Our goal is to perform about twice per month at night clubs and live music venues, private parties, or community events.
We are looking for a competent and professional drummer that can rehearse on average once a week.
We do not seek to recreate recordings of songs note-for-note but rather to have a distinct sound as a band. We will occasionally rearrange songs to suit our instrumentation or just for the sake of being creative.
While we do want to, and expect to, get good paying gigs, we do not rely on the band as our primary source of income as all band members have fulltime jobs. We would rather focus on getting quality gigs, not quantity. We are seeking someone in a similar situation. Current band members ages range from 24 to 39 so age itself is not important. Ability and attitude are.
Ultimately we are seeking a creative, professional drummer who shares our mindset and approach to playing music.
