ABOUT

Seeking Pro Musicians with Vocals (July 2019)

I am currently forming a dynamic Art/Classic Rock Showband featuring select songs from the 60’s-80’s. Repertoire will feature strong keyboards and guitars, done by a wide variety of artists with a disciplined ‘tribute’ approach. You must have strong lead vocals to be considered for this project. This is not a dance/bar band. Top musicianship, image, showmanship, and production will be key aspects of this band.

MALE LEAD VOCALIST – Versatile singer with superb stage presence and a high tenor range.

BASSIST/VOCALIST – “In the groove/ pocket player” who can “funk-out” and be melodic if required.

GUITARIST/VOCALIST – Rhythm and lead. Tone and effects are important. Someone who knows how to play with Dynamics.

DRUMMER/VOCALIST – A player who uses dynamics, is tasteful, and keeps an unwavering tempo.

Important criteria:

• Experience and image count. This will be a show.
• Play 2x/month within a 4-hour radius. High paying jobs only.
• Equal partnership setup with a minimal upfront investment.
• Rehearsal in West Pittston.
• Rehearse and play shows sober.
• Be willing to share various band responsibilities.
• Willing to learn parts from the recordings, not a ‘jam’ situation.
• Ambitious, disciplined, and come to rehearsals fully prepared.
• Production will be outsourced.

Interested? Email me an introduction including some bio information and links to any videos/audio files that showcase your brand. Also include some songs/artists that highlight your vocal style. I can then send you some songs I’m considering so you can see the direction I have in mind. Ultimately, the repertoire will be a band decision. Sorry…but vague, incomplete, fishing emails that don’t contain demo material will not be answered.
