ABOUT

In this day of smart phone technology, Facebook and friends you could utilize for assistance, if your account DOES NOT have a recent pic of you and or you can't provide one, We're not interested in you.

If your Commitment level isn't at VERY COMMITTED or TOURING (preferable), we're not interested in you.

If the very idea of playing at professional football stadiums or venues able to hold crowds of such size capacity scares you, we're NOT interested in you.

If you don't WANT a career in music as a member of a very rapidly up and coming Rock/Punk/Goth/Alternative band that will tour local, regionally, nationally and internationally... We're not interested.

Now that that's out of the way.


ATTENTION!!! PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION! THIS BANDMIX ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO INFORM CANDIDATES ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN UP AND COMING PENNSYLVANIA ORIGINAL MUSIC ROCK / PUNK BAND... SINCE SUNDAY (SS)!


+ + + SONG NOTICE:
"Falling Apart" (featured song at the top right of this page) and "Suicide Case" ("MUSIC" section toward the bottom right side of this page) have vocals with music.

All songs in the "VIDEOS" section of this page are INSTRUMENTAL demo versions. The lyrics are ALREADY made for all songs appearing on this page and all songs are ORIGINALS and under COPYRIGHT PROTECTION. We have a very deep catalog of ORIGINAL rock tunes and need a skilled Lead Guitarist to simply learn and perform them.

Feel free to check our Local, Regional, National and Global ranking position on ReverbNation by going to the following webpage :

SinceSundayUpdate.yolasite.com


MUSIC / LYRICS COLLABORATION NOTICE:
While we are open to music collaboration with band members, we will be performing the songs herein 1st as they are ready to go and just need to be learned. This enables us to get out gigging FASTER (however, IF you ALREADY have quality finished original material, we CAN incorporate that as well)!


WHERE WE HOLD BAND REHEARSAL:
We hold rehearsals in a professional band rehearsal space in Coraopolis PA one day per week Friday, Saturday or Sunday afternoons/evenings for 3 - 4 hours.

The rehearsal space is AIR-CONDITIONED and comes with backline-- drum set, guitar amp and cab (2 if needed), bass amp and cab, keyboard and monitor, mics, stands, mixer and vocal monitors as well!.

Just bring your own guitars and pedals (FYI... our drummer LOVES knowing that all he has to bring is just his sticks, and cymbals LOL!).

If for whatever reason you decide you want to bring anything else, there's an elevator!

The rehearsal space is 100% plug and play, which means you WON'T have to load and unload all that gear you normally would need to (thus saving a little wear and tear on yourself)!

We also have a backup professional plug & play Rehearsal Space / Studio that we utilize. We're never without a place to rehearse!


BAND GOALS:
The short term goal of SINCE SUNDAY is to gig locally. The long term goal is to make our debut album/debut music video, tour when the band is ready and go as far as the sky allows


+ + + THE PLAN TO ACHIEVE OUR ABOVE BAND GOALS:
If you are selected to be a SINCE SUNDAY band member you will be paid an EQUAL pay split of whatever the band makes at show/venue performances and from the merchandise.

We already have PAID venues waiting for us and we'd like to get out performing to them ASAP.

We'd be looking at performing 2 - 3 nights per month (for starters) gigging the local Pittsburgh scene 1st.

Once we have secured a pretty decent following in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas we will branch out to wider areas for greater exposure as well as make a professional music video to greatly aid in our marketing efforts (we'll do this by reinvesting the monies we make from our shows/venues/festivals/concerts, our merchandise and an equal share of some of the monies we make from our jobs... Ergo why you MUST be employed.

We have professional band management through an independent record label operating underneath the umbrella of Sony Music, a band website and a small but growing underground INTERNATIONAL following.


HOW OUR PROFESSIONAL BAND MANAGER WILL ASSIST SINCE SUNDAY:
The professional band management team assists with making sure that Since Sunday's LEGAL affairs, marketing and brand promotion are handled properly.

They are a professional nationwide production / merchandising company whose services include:
(A) Viral campaign management.
(B) Management and Live Performance Bookings.

Our Branding Agency will help us create, define and grow the SINCE SUNDAY brand, in order to gain more fans and exposure.

They will work with Since Sunday to create, promote and distribute across ALL channels of media including; TV, Radio, Web (YouTube, Facebook, IG, Twitter, etc.) Printed Press, Venues and Local Businesses. All 100% original content. Music, Logos, promotional fliers, YouTube or music videos, merchandise.

In addition to the above, we will work on getting a TOUR MANAGER to accompany and assist us in making sure our tours are handled as smoothly and professionally as possible.


HOW THE MONEY EARNINGS WORK FOR THE BAND MEMBERS OF SINCE SUNDAY:
For example, even though I (Lord M) wrote the LYRICS of the songs we're rehearsing within my portfolio and on this Bandmix page, the band members of Since Sunday are ALL equal partners and as such ALL receive credit as being the writers of the songs.

In this way, ALL band members receive AN EQUAL SPLIT in the royalties so that no one band member will make more or less money than anyone else. We split EVERYTHING (the royalties, merchandise, venue pay... etc).

Vice-versa, if any SS band member writes a song or songs THAT IS TO BE USED IN SINCE SUNDAY, the monies from said song/music is to be split EQUALLY among their fellow SS band-mates.

In this way, SINCE SUNDAY takes care of and supports one another as a band/team as well as free ourselves from the corruption that stems from jealousy and greed.

SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON LORD M AND HIS EXPERIENCE AS A LEAD VOCALIST / FRONT-MAN:.

I hail from the New York, NY Manhattan area (I now reside in Kittanning PA) and have performed at various famous venues such as:

CB GB
The Continental Club
The Lime Light
Webster Hall
Fastlanes
Dingbatz
The Stone Pony

To name only a few.

I am the son of Mr. Pete Jackson who is the co-writer / co-producer of the world-renown song from the 70's "Turn the Beat Around" (and many others) which was originally sung by the late Vicki Sue Robinson, then later re-done by the great Gloria Estefan.

My mother use to tour with the late Marvin Gaye, my late Grandmother was the Vice President of Finances for The Fremantle Corporation (which handles both "American Idol" and "The Voice" among others). My late Grandfather was the owner of Catawba Records in South Carolina (an independent Record label which he owned with his wife).

Music runs in my family, it's in my blood and I, as a result, have access to good resources and industry contacts (unfortunately it's true that it's not so much a matter of what you know but WHO you know in the industry of this dog eat dog business.)

We now simply need the right Lead Guitarist to provide this plane the added fuel it needs to truly go the distance!

LET'S DO THIS!!!

Looking forward to your replies and answering ANY questions or concerns!

Thank you.

SINcerely,

Lord M
