ABOUT

Looking for a keyboard, trumpet & trombone player for SKA tribute band covering Desmond Dekker, English Beat, Specials, Madness, Selecter, Bad Manners, Fishbone, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, plus ska-flavored tunes by other bands like Police, Joe Jackson, Oingo Boingo, No Doubt, etc. Must be able to work weekends. (Expect serious gigging at upscale clubs, we are not the kind of band that plays tiny neighborhood bars just for fun.) NEED ASAP!!! GIGS starting in SEPTEMBER!

I am the former lead singer of High in the Mid 80s. Currently the lead singer of STARMAN: The Bowie Tribute & SKA-DA-BING! SKA-DA-BANG!, & keyboard player, harmonies for Closet Carpenters. I have 25+ yrs. experience as a frontperson.
