ABOUT

We are Kid Galaga (kidgalaga), a Bay Area cover/party band playing a variety of rock, funk & new wave hits from 70’s-today. We have a concept in mind that we are rolling out in phases that’s different from everything else a cover band does.

Due to some unforeseen live/work balance issues we are now seeking a capable, inspired and talented keyboard and synth player to help us take our sound to the next level. You should love most genres of music. We play covers of popular songs from those genres; mostly new wave and alternative, with some funk and modern rock thrown in for good measure and it’s all danceable. You should strike a balance between playing signature riffs from these songs faithfully and, yet, be able to add your own style to solos or other moments where you have an opportunity to shine. You love to fuss around with oscillators and arpeggiators, and would spend a few hours figuring out how to replicate the synth sounds from New Order’s Bizarre Love Triangle or dreaming up a sweet, Hammond B3 or Rhodes style keyboard solo to some of the funkier songs we do. Bonus if you have some vocal ability or any other skills (can play saxophone, percussion, etc).

This should go without saying but we really need prospective candidates to be available most Fridays and Saturdays. We rehearse every Friday, unless we have a gig, and also gig out Saturdays. We gig out frequently, having recently played shows in such places as Fairfax, Santa Rosa, Truckee and even Northstar-at-Tahoe. We're developing a following and are proud to bring kick ass music to our fans

Check out kidgalaga and introduce yourself, we’d love to meet you. We will keep you busy going into the summer months as our schedule is already filling up. Cheers!
