ABOUT

Cover band seeking drummer, bassist, keyboardist, rhythm guitarist, and saxophonist. We are currently one vocalist and one guitar player.

Drummer must have excellent control over dynamics and preferably play a smaller kit (18" kick, etc--no boomy rock kits/bangers).

Bassist must have great groove, preferably playing a bass with passive pickups (Fender, MusicMan...).

Keyboardist must have and be able to play two boards or parts simultaneously. Must have quality tones for piano, e-piano, rhoades, hammond, and strings.

Rhythm guitar must have and be able to switch between nylon acoustic, steel string acoustic, and electric guitars (other guitarist switches between nylon and two electrics).

Saxophonist must have and be able to play baritone, tenor, and soprano instruments.

HUGE bonus for any who can also sing impeccable harmony vocals.

We are an eclectic group that focus on the sexy groove of artists such as Sade and Sting (these two artist comprise more than 60% of our material).

We are mature and dependable people with other life priorities, but we have a sense of fun and humor, too. The plan is to rehearse once a week (as a group) for the most part at our place in Hollywood and gig 2 to 4 times a month locally (Los Angeles) and some in surrounding SoCal areas (Santa Barbara, OC, San Diego).
