Members Of Band

There is currently an opening for a Sub on Trombone in the Chicago 9 Tribute Band with the possibility to move into the main position should someone drop out. We will be holding open auditions for those who are seriously interested in being part of this amazing band.

Interested parties can respond to this email stating your interest to audition for this position.

The position requires that you attend rehearsals that are scheduled once a month on Monday night at 7:30 PM. The more we perform live shows these rehearsals are not as frequent.

The band does about 20 to 30 shows a year and also does 2 or 3 benefit shows. There are many other rewards in performing with us and they will be disclosed if you are selected.

As you know the trombone position in a Chicago Tribute band is a vital piece so we are only looking for people that are serious and will commit to stay with the band for quite some time.

If this still interests you please contact me ASAP to set up your audition. Include all your contact information and availability.

Thank you,

Phil Saglembeni
