ABOUT

I have thirty years combined experience in: performing and teaching.
Our band: Downstream consists of a drummer and bass player that have several years experience performing on cruise ships and various venues.
Our band is professional and dedicated and we work hard on arranging songs with good quality instrumental parts. We are in need of an advanced lead vocalist and keyboard player. We would like to have someone that can cover both lead vocals and keyboard. All current band members sing harmony and some lead vocals but we need someone that can front the vocals and play keyboard.
It's hard to list all the styles and bands that we want to play but the sky is the limit with the number of styles and instruments that my band can cover. We can also play all acoustic sets so we would like to have someone that can also play another instrument such as: violin, acoustic guitar, etc...
Our goal is to support the lead vocalist with proper arrangements, timing and musicianship.
We are looking to be a working band with playing out one time per week to start with a big focus on playing various styles at micro brew settings.

We encourage a female vocalist that plays keyboards at advanced levels to contact us.

Please listen to and view our videos that show exactly where we have a singer slated to sing the songs with subtitles. The vocals that are sung on the videos are harmony parts and the lead vocals are left empty. The Blue Moon of Kentucky take is a mix of the original score combined with elements of LeAnn Rimes version which contains an a capella break in the song twice. The Jolene music only track is recorded with a vocal track to show placement of lyrics. This vocal track is the only part that is not played lived by any of us.
