ABOUT

The music you hear above is from one of my other rock projects. But my other side venture "Raised On Ritalin" needs another keyboardist! We will be carrying 2 on the team, for availability reasons.
Has a basement rehearsal space with beginning level soundproofing, 15" Powered PA speaker system, an on-site Ludwig keystone blue sparkle 5 Piece set, Gallien-Krueger bass rig, Korg Krome Workstation/synth, SM58 microphones and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe I guitar combo amp.
Currently I have all the pieces together for an 80's COVER BAND minus a committed and available keyboardist!
We are:
Female and Male lead singers
Lead Guitarist - formerly of Brickfoot and Team Steam
Bassist - formerly of Myliye and Team Steam
Drummer - amazingly precise with years of experience
We are already rehearsing at least 20 songs so all you would need to do is impress us with your chops and learn the songs!!
Message me for the current song list. We are going to be slightly female-lead song heavy and very new wave. We will not be delving into hair metal or butt rock. We are more into The Bangles and The Cars than Motley Crue and Poison.
Please be proactive in trying to replicate the tones from the song list. Do not be a "this will do" player who does their own thing. We are a COVER band and the point is to reproduce the original sound as much as possible.
Also, if you do not think you can invest 2 hours a week in band rehearsal time...do not apply. I know 2 hours seems laughable but you'd be surprised how many people cannot seem to pull this off. We practice once a week on Monday.
