ABOUT

Hello, This is Richard Young. Bandleader, keyboard player and vocalist with The Route 66 Band.
We are looking for a permanent Lead Guitarist. If you sing, that would be great, but not mandatory.
The Route 66 band does a mix of Classic Rock, Top 40 from the 70’s through current, Some Country Rock, and a bit of the better Funk and Disco.
Currently we have a female lead singer/percussionist, a male lead singer who also doubles on drums, one female backing singer, a bass player, a rhythm guitarist and me on Hammond organ, other keys and vocals.
Our current 2019 song list can be found on the band web site at www.route-66-band.com
Right now we are working on Groups 1 and 2.
The vocal section, rehearses every Monday night from 8:15 PM to 11:15 PM.
Regular full band rehearsals and auditions are Thursdays from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM.
The Route 66 band rehearses, and will record, at Lemon Studio Monrovia, where the band is based. I own Lemon Studio Monrovia. Lemon Studio Monrovia has a complete Back Line. The studio web site is www.lemon-studio-monrovia.com
Your personality and “Fit” is more important than your playing ability. We are a Dance Band with a team of personalities that work well together. You will need to fit in musically, and personality.
The route 66 Band is reforming after a five year hiatus. If you’re looking for a band that’s ready to play out, that isn’t us. It will take us two to three months worth of rehearsals to get to that point where we can play out. Our goal is to be able to play out at least twice a month.
If you are currently in two or more bands, Route 66 is NOT for you. We are NOT looking for a “Hired Gun.”
If you want to reach me directly, my band email is theroute66band@aol.com My cell number is 626-614-7974.
Thanks so much for your time.
Richard L. Young
