Two lyricist (rappers) looking to start an all genre band with a focus on mainstream HIP HOP!
This is a START-UP band! We are not hiring musicians! We are in the grassroots stage and looking to find talented musicians that are capable and open to
playing mutiple styles of music. Even though the two lead vocals are RAPPING (some singing), it is still an ECLECTIC band!
THIS IS NOT A BAND BACKING TWO LEAD VOCALS! THIS IS A BAND THAT WILL BE IDENTIFIED AS BAND!
THIS IS NOT A COVER BAND! WE WILL BE WRITING ALL ORIGINAL SONGS!
ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRIES REQUESTED! 18 and older is a MUST!
Remember this is a BAND that will be identified as such. Each member having their own identity and contributing to ALL band matters as an EQUAL and NOT just a musician for hire!
WE WILL BE BOOKING LIVE SHOWS IN NYC TO GENERATE LOCAL BUZZ AND BRANCHING OUT OF THE CITY AS WELL.
BECAUSE WE ARE A LIVE BAND, OUR LIVE PERFORMANCES MUST BE TIGHT AND WELL REHEARSED,
WHICH MEANS YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR PRACTICE/REHEARSALS REGULARLY.
The goal of this band is to generate a following, get label attention, record in studio, and be known for the mixture of hip hop
(which is usually heavily produced electronically) and live instrumental music with a mainstream/rock edge.
IF SERIOUS please respond!!
If you know of anybody else who would be interested in this opportunity, please spread the word.
MUST LIVE IN OR AROUND NYC AREA!
