ABOUT

Gigging classic rock / 80's metal cover band seeking lead singer, preferably someone that also plays keyboards. We do about 40 songs that span classic rock & 80's metal from the late 70's to early 90's - Sabbath, Trower, lots of old Van Halen, Ozzy, Skid Row, Dio, Black Crowes, Ted Nugent, Kiss, etc. Some of those vocals are higher, so we play live at E flat, and can tune down further if necessary, but would love to find someone who can sing that genre without a lot of difficulty. We like to play about 3 times a month, with one or two of those being a gig, and we have venues ready to book us, but we just lost our lead singer. We're all older, with families and jobs, so not looking to make it a profession or an income source, but we have good gear and like to play. We're primarily non-smokers, so we will only play non-smoking gigs. This is a long term band for us, so we're looking for someone who fits personally as well as musically. We're all easy going and have a lot of fun at practices. If you're interested in auditioning, email me at: jeffdurbin at g_m_a_i_l dot com. We're a St. Louis-based band, but we're currently practicing at our drummer's place in Belleville, IL.
