Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

5CP is a working six piece band with a strong vocal emphasis who have been playing and gigging together for 10 years. Our lineup includes a male and female lead vocalist, two Lead Guitars, Keys, Drums and bass.

We're looking for a lead guitar player

If you can cover a wide variety of bands and styles well and are looking for equally advanced musicians with an established working unit to play with we would love for you to come down and play with us and see where it goes.

One of our original lead guitar players is relocating and we're looking for a replacement - a deeply experienced, versatile and reliable lead guitar player who is equally good at laying down burning leads or chunking rhythm guitar parts.

Quality multi-part vocals are an important part of our style so the ability to sing background harmonies and/or some leads and to groove while doing so is a big plus, though it's not a deal breaker if you don't sing.
We love and play a lot of different types of music . This includes covers [95%] and originals [5%] depending on the gig. The tunes range across the musical spectrum from Rock, R&B, Pop, alt rock, Funk, Americana, danceable Radio Hits to ' "Other." Anything that gets the crowd up and going. We like to stretch out as well, sometimes on our originals, sometimes on something else

We're friendly, easy to work with people who are only serious about playing music well and we're looking for an energetic, easy to work with team player with stage presence who has a blast connecting with an audience.

We're interested in someone who can commit to this project over the long term - if it meets both the bands and your mutual creative and musical goals. Hired guns or those looking for fill-in situations aren't what we're looking for. .

We generally gig one to two times per month, Ocasionally more. We rehearse in South Orange NJ once a week.
If this sounds like something you'd like to know more about let's get in touch and find out more about each other. Thanks.
