ABOUT

Hey, what's up? My name's Jon.

My band is looking for a percussionist. We've been really into new wave, no wave, punk, post punk, dance punk, krautrock, afro beat, tropicalia, etc, lately. Basically rhythm and groove oriented material. Dancey, fun, rough and tumble pop.

We'd like someone with acoustic percussion, and a good background in Latin and African polyrhythm. Also, I have an Alesis Strike Multipad that we'll be using. I'll use it sometimes, so will the drummer, and maybe you can too. If you have your own drum/sample pad that would be rad too.

Hit me up if you wanna try out for the band.

Peace

Jon

EQUIPMENT

Band all has great gear. Drummer's got a Roland Octapad, and a great acoustic kit/cymbals. Bassist has a cool pedal set up. Guitarist too. Multi-instrumentalist has crazy good gear. Great synths, guitar pedals, drum machines, samplers. Weird and wonderful stuff. Couldn't even begin to tell you about all of it. Don't know what most of it is. Just know there's a lot of it and it's all awesome. As for me, I use a VoiceLive Touch 2, an Alesis Strike Multipad, cowbells, agogo, blocks, etc.
