SEEKING

Drums.

ABOUT

Seeking experienced drummer. Original indie-rock band with female-fronted vocals, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, bass. Our band is seeking a creative in-the-pocket drummer with an upbeat indie rock vibe and sense of groove for live shows and recording. This drummer is not a heavy hitter, supports the vocals and emotions of a song, and listens/plays with the rest of the band.

Stage professionalism is key, meaning knowing when to drive the song and when to lay back; able to recall starts, stops, and bpms. Eating nachos on stage is not so great.

Rehearsal space costs, so we aim to have our s**t together, practicing on our own time and ready to roll at rehearsal. We ask that you have the discipline and ability to practice the songs - in between- rehearsals.

We are all seasoned musicians (30+) and currently play in the NJ/PA area. Our influences are varied - take a look below! When we get together, we lean into indie-rock with an underlying driving beat - forward moving - that opens up into a wide open space at integral places in the song.

Must have your own equipment, transport, etc. What else...no drugs or heavy drinking. Must have had at least 10 years’ experience playing in bands, on stages, and in studios. We're looking to hit the ground running.

Here's the deal - we have a bunch of awesome songs we're ready to record. Just need to find that creative magic ingredient in a drummer that locks in with the bass and doesn't overpower the vocals.

If this all sounds like you or you'd like more information, great! Please send us a link to your recorded material, video, and photo via Bandmix or g mail -

About money: We've had a few inquiries from experienced drummers about how much money we make per performance. While we'd love to say that we are supplementing our income with gig money, that is not the case right now (emphasis on right now). Any money we do make goes into paying for rehearsal space (we rehearse 1X week) and into the kitty to use for recording and video production.

#musicgoals: Gig 2-4X month, record, create a video, and tour.
