SEEKINGBass Guitar, Drums.
My name is Neon Gypsy. I am a powerful, soulful female vocalist and front-person looking to break away from my solo acoustic gig and unleash my hard rock side. "Neon Gypsy" hails out of the Portland, Maine. I have played and written my own material for 20+ years in all kinds of formats with rhythmic guitar melodies, life experience stories told through dynamic song-writing with passionate, powerhouse and gripping vocals filled with soul, grit and sweetness all in one. Within the last 4 years is when I have really taken my music out and started playing out more.
Looking to branch out into a full band again to bring out that hard rock edge that I just cannot get playing solo. A bluesy, rock vibe. Ready to kick ass and turn heads with some talented team players, a focus on original music but, open to a set of carefully chosen covers (tbd here soon) to get us seen, playing out and paid as long as we add our own style.
I have played in all kinds of formats from full band, to trio's, duos, open mics, benefits, paid gigs, openers and lately, solo after pandemic. You can see my list of events I have coming up and also in the past on my musician Events page. I love, love, love the rock side of playing in a full band and all the dynamics that it brings so I am looking again for a full band with people who are also in it for the passion and fun of it first, money last. So, first and foremost, let's enjoy it first, make a mark second and kick some ass when we enter and leave the venue!
Exposure and something to talk about is key so I stay busy musically with my projects no matter how big or small, solo or not. My view is that playing at amazing venues and the experiences of are part of the "prize" for me in building the musical "resume." It's sometimes the key to exposure to getting known and I have done a lot of that leg work over the years myself. At the same time, I am not going to waste anyone's time getting you paid peanuts at a 3-4 hour gig!
So, I'm looking for positive and creative band mates looking to explore how we can combine our styles to make something fantastic and memorable! I have a ton of original songs waiting in the wings to be professionally recorded. My first single, "5th Dimension" was recorded just before pandemic and thereafter played on local and college radio stations. It has definitely not gotten a fair listen with pandemic taking over the world so I will still push this single as i wait to explore more professional recordings with my new band mates.
I have a decent basement practice space ready to plug and play in Portland, Maine. Currently has an electronic drum kit but, a drummer can bring their own kit too. We have pro gear for sound at gigs too.
Looking for peeps who show up for practice with a good attitude who can take this seriously but, not too seriously ;) If you want to get high or drink do it after or gigs or practice. Be a team player. I am always open to ideas and commentary on how to make this band a head-turner! And you must make this fun because once it's not fun anymore - It's not worth it to me. Check the ego at the door.
Neon Gypsy is comprised of singer/songwriter, Jennifer K. and lead guitarist, Brian A. I am a fine artist and also a graphic designer so I take these talents and add them to my image an marketing while hoping to build a "brand" out of the band. So if you play with us you play as a team member of and represent, "Neon Gypsy."
I do all the marketing, graphic design on and and posters/ads as needed. Currently working on a new be channel where I can upload all my videos.
If you would like to hear some samples I would be glad to send you video links and some recordings via messenger until my be channel is complete. You can also scroll my past events page on if you go to my musician page as well.
Any further questions PM me from the Neon Gypsy page. Looking forward to chatting.
* You do NOT need proof of "vaccination" to be a part of this band.
* You DO need to be wicked schmaat and/or have an intact sense of humor or dry wit will suffice but, not a replacement of actual musical talent.
* Musical talent a plus
* Should you become a member of this band you may or may not be deemed a nickname you never wanted vicariously through me unless you already have one I like.
