Blood Rose


Lead Guitar.


Blood Rose is an original music Celtic Rock Band. We are looking for a Lead Guitarist willing to devote the time and the energy to not just "playing in a band" but becoming part of the band and a bandmate. If you're looking for something that's going to slap things together, in order to start playing out in 90 days to six months, THIS IS NOT THAT.

We're going to the top, taking it all the way... When the music is right and it's ready, we will erupt and bring people the quality of music, they've wanted to hear, but haven't in 25 years or more. An audience will follow you, when you have something to play, not just something to show. We're not a Dance band, although our music is danceable, we're a Show Band.

The philosophy is simple, it is the music that counts, not the hype. A man in a rush will shortcut the music, and we will not short cut the music. A couple gentlemen said to me, decades ago, "If you're going to make music your business, your own music must stand by itself. Do not ride on anyone else's coat tails, do not sully their music by trying to play it, because you are not them, regardless how talented you might be." You may have heard of them, Don Henley and Glenn Frey, (The Eagles), and I was told similarly, by Jeff Carlisi, (.38 Special).

We have the right personnel, the perfect rhythm guitar/singer songwriter, the perfect Vocalist, the perfect Bassist, the most amazing drummer. We just need a lead guitarist, who is willing to devote the time, their energy, and their talent to creating music so tasty, so timeless, we can wrap ourselves up in it forever.

If you want a genre of music, it's a combination of Southern Rock, Celtic Rock, Symphonic Metal along with Symphonic Celtic Metal.

If you've the chops, the commitment, and desire, to ride to the top, reach me by text, 720-327-3501 or
