Harmonic Maneuvers is a Rock/Fusion/Funk quartet writing and playing mainly adult oriented original music with some unconventional covers tossed in for good measure. The band is about 12 years old, based out of the Milwaukee, WI area and consists of keys, electric/synth guitar, drums and bass. HM has 30+ original songs ready for performance and can fill a 2 hour time slot easily. The musicians have each played semi-pro for at least 20 years or longer. They play small clubs and outdoor "Jazz/Music in the Park” style gigs. Best audience fit would be adults 30+ with some jazz to medium rock or 80's prog expectations. They are compact and have a small PA and lighting system for small club or outdoor gigs. They are professionals in their daytime careers and with the music they play. Pro attitudes, approach and gear are benchmarks of the Harmonic Maneuvers philosophy. Creative and approachable writing along with interesting instrument voicing and addictive rhythms assures the audience will be compelled to take a closer listen and really enjoy the Harmonic Maneuvers experience.
We are currently looking for a bass player to fill a vacancy. The ideal musician would have similar interests to contribute to our eclectic mix of style while keeping things approachable by a contemporary adult 30's-50's something audience. Kind of a Level 42 meets (80's Belew) King Crimson meets Simply Red with a little Chick Corea, Police and a bit of edge mixed in kind of thing. A little complex but still funky and fun. The final cast of characters will determine the projects sound and feel. We all have pro gear and professional attitudes but the working environment (my home studio) is fun and casual. Day gig and family come first. But... weekly rehearsals and some independent work help move things along, 6-12 gigs a year for starters.
The tunes above are sample recordings of current material all recorded at different times using different methods. None of them are complete or final recordings.
