Looking to assemble an all-pro cover band featuring the following influences: Blues, Soul, Pop, R&B, Jazz, Country and perhaps some Latin. I have a 100+ selection playlist for interested party inquiries.
In the beginning it will be covers with extensive use of backing tracks to reduce the number of sidemen we carry until our brand is established, but once we have our sound and a core group it will be time to write some originals.
Currently have male vocal/rhythm guitar and the drummer that survive from the original group. Wanting to add the other key pieces: female vocal, lead, bass, keys (piano, organ, synth; i.e., one musician playing all three). And in time, horns (two tenor saxes, trumpet, trombone), harmonica and then perhaps 3 female backup singers. All musicians should be able to sing backup. This requirement is subject to waiver in the event I find a lead guitar like Clapton or a bass like Nathan East, or keys like Ray Charles (note however that all of them can sing).
Once I have the core group assembled (after auditions) practice will begin in earnest until a fair amount of the playlist is down cold. Then, as necessary. Once a week I expect. Looking for pro (this site calls them expert) musicians that have 100+ gigs under their belt and are very committed that will be able to produce a get-down tight sound. Also, no drugs and no drama. We're here to play music, not audition for soap operas.
The way I see this developing is playing clubs/bars until we get our brand established, then weddings, corporate events, social events, parties, casinos, wine gardens, then maybe even Vegas! If you glance at my influences you will note that they are fairly eclectic. This is because I want to be able to respond to any venue. The end game in all of this is to make really, really good music and money. And face it, if we are good enough, this can be your day job.
Some closing notes:
Fun: everybody wants to have fun, we will have fun but also know when it's time to be seriously professional.
Influences: mine are listed but that doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. As each member is added they will bring their influences with them.
