After a moderately successful stretch with a local promoter since 2014 in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk, my band TOP SHELF The Classic Rock Experience is modifying and rebranding to TOP SHELF Rock 'n' Country. Modern Country has taken on a rock flair in recent times and is quite marketable these days. Originally, mostly a Classic Rock band (high end tunes from Zepppelin, Who, Stones, Beatles, etc) I am currently looking to add a Modern Country portion to our show.
Ideally looking to recruit a male or female Rock Keyboardist multi-instrumentalist who plays 2nd guitar (electric/acoustic) and can help round out the sound necessary for Modern Country while being primarily strong in Rock keyboards. Background vocals and/or other stringed instrument(s) (slide, mandolin, banjo, violin, etc) a big plus for the Country portion. We would also consider two individuals to fill the roles of keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist.
Originally a working five piece band (guitar/bass/keys/drums/vocals), we are currently down to a three piece as our keyboardist and guitarist are on indefinite hiatus and likely not returning. Having already identified a replacement lead guitar player, we are looking to replace keys and add a female co-lead vocalist, potentially growing the band, if the addition makes musical sense (no drama or hired-hand please). Serious, yet fun, is the name of the game.
In terms of rehearsals: alternating in person studio as well as independent work to learn parts (1x week or every other week).
Looking to play out approximately once a month in medium to larger venues as well as the Suffolk County beach hut circuit next summer.
Please reach out if you think that you could potentially be the right fit and we may have mutual interest. Looking forward to hearing from you. rsvpmenow05 at ya who dot com
