Band to Join, Vocalist, Acoustic Guitar, Background Singer.

ABOUT

Working acoustic guitar player/singer looking for same. Heavy on the blues/(very) obscure/forgotten classic rock/pop music as well, and other things (think Leon Redbone), and some old honky tonk, bluesy tunes as needed ala Jimmy Rogers, and original 1930's style blues such as Memphis Minnie, etcetera. 2 originals per set. I am a working musician, in this for fun, AND money. If that makes no sense to you, please do not apply. I don't care how old you are, only if you can, want to, and are willing to play music for money. I play blues harp, and do a lot of lead as well as rhythm guitar. Needing someone who is heavy on good funky, bluesy, 'rockish' rhythm acoustic to play as needed. Multi instrumentalists more than welcome (could use a fiddle/mandolin but guitar first). I have all the necessary equipment/sound system/mic stands/direct box, so all you'd need would be your guitar, guitar stand, mic, cord(s), any other instruments played, as well as transportation to and from the gig. I provide the rest. Looking for someone willing to share the duty of singing, with a 50/50 cash split, usually in the range of $100.00+ but once in a while only $75.00 in your pocket for 3 (sometimes/RARELY 4) sets. Looking for a musician who would like to play out as much or as little as you desire, anywhere from 2 times a month to 8+ times a month, and is willing to do the rehearsing to get there, the sooner the better. I live in Jackson, and rehearse at my own space here. Must be willing to travel to surrounding Southern Mid Michigan counties for gigs as needed.

If you'd like to know more, lets talk! Please answer this ad via TELEPHONE CALL ONLY-NO TEXTS OR EMAILS. If you have questions, and/or are interested in the position, call me on the phone. Booking two months out now, so there is plenty of time for rehearsing! 517-513-4252.
