Fran from The Darla Hood Band here.
Due to life changes, we're currently ISO a solid, easy going lead guitarist to join our ranks.
Someone with a good sense of humor who's confident and capable of bringing their take to a song. We're not a "note for note" kind of band.and believe, whenever possible, a band should make songs they play their own.
We play music for FUN. It's not a lifestyle nor our main source of income and most importantly, there are no Grammys happening here! It's important you know this.
Age wise we're in our late 50's through 70s and long ago left the ego issues behind. These days, jobs, grown families, grandchildren and retirement keep us grounded.
We're a 5 piece, get along very well and come together every other week, (unless we have an upcoming gig) usually on a Saturday, from noon to 3 or 1-4 in our bass player's cellar (Paramus)
Everyone is expected to have done their "homework" and show up prepared -- practice is for refining and tweaking songs, not learning them from scratch.
If you're versed in effects, great, but the guitarist we're hoping to find will also understand when to play clean. Can't do "Always on My Mind" with a ton of effects.
FYI--Our rhythm guitarist has stepped up for us and is doing a great job but he'd much rather get back to what he does best! He'll be there to support you and play lead once in a while.
We have gigs in July and August so not expecting you to be ready to jump into the fray until September.
If you're interested, drop us a line: thedarlahoodband at dot com.Tell us a little about yourself and if you can sing (NOT a deal breaker) Have samples to share? Terrific. We're looking for a good fit talent and personality wise.
And by all means check out The Darla Hood Band at. s://./TheDarlaHoodBand/ so you know what you're getting yourself into! LOL
Thanks and stay safe.
