Our beloved bass player is relocating back home to the East Coast so we're looking for a permanent replacement. DRESSED is a newer project with 2 guitars/vox, bass, drums -- we began playing shows around mid 2019 but have known each other for many years and have also played together in the past.
We like vocal harmonies, guitar harmonies, melody, and a solid beat. We play all original guitar pop, power pop, jangle, psych...3 - 4 minute pop songs...beginning, middle, end. 15 - 20 songs so far and we are always writing. We strive for creativity, loud and pretty...catchy but with some interesting (we hope) musicianship.
Our goals for 2020 are to continue playing shows regularly, lining up a mini tour to Ventura, SCruz, SFrancisco (we're friends with bands in those areas), write many more songs, and record so that we can start putting some singles out there and grow our audience and fanbase. We're all very committed to this band but we also all have full-time jobs. We have a 24/7 private lockout in downtown Culver City and practice 2 - 3 times per week usually in the evening.
We're looking for a bass player that we can vibe with and someone who is interested in our style and vision. If you already play in other bands that's cool with us. Vocals would be awesome but not required. We're good friends and hang out when we can outside of rehearsals. Usually it's about going to local shows in LA or just meeting up for food somewhere. Some of our favorite venues around town include the Echo, the Hi Hat, the Mint, Fonda Theatre.
If this sounds good please say hello!
