SEEKING

Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Upright bass.

ABOUT

We are looking for a percussionist or intuitive drummer (and eventually a bass player -- ideally stand-up bass, either acoustic or electric) to play our ever-expanding original material: instrumentals and songs with lyrics. Our songs are played on electrified acoustic Taylor guitars (processed for a wide range of possible sounds), along with sax, clarinet or flute (one at at time ;)). On guitar we primarily use a unique alternate tuning.
We're looking for a tasteful, creative percussionist and/or drummer (and the right bass player) who enhances whatever the piece needs, and can adapt in real-time, as needed. Jazz drumming experience might be a plus.

We will play out live and will also record a digital product.

We are situated in Cave Creek and Carefree, about 10 minutes apart.

Influences

Beatles, Dire Straits, Alexi Murdoch, Tom Petty, The Shins, Bill Frizell, Dave Weckl, Mark Knopfler, Michael Hedges, ColdPlay, Zero 7, Air, Stanley Turrentine, Nightmares on Wax, among many others. Generally speaking, our musical tastes are eclectic and we're not really interested in just playing blues. We are into experimentation and improvisation, and on the guitar we utilize various open tunings extensively. Our sound is closest to the genre: Alternative/Indie/R&B.

We love music sessions that are creative and fun, with openness to sharing with live audiences as appropriate. We currently rehearse twice a week (one weekend afternoon and one weeknight), more if preparing for a gig.
