ABOUT

The Darla Hood Band (based in Bergen County...plays classic rock with our own spin along with deeper cuts. We've been together about two and a half years and are ISO lead/rhythm guitarists, one or two, to replace a terrific guys who have left due to work. (Would be nice to have a keyboard and/or sax player too but a guitarist is #1) We DO NOT play note for note reproductions because, hey, why pretend to be the original artists? You needn't be a ringer but you must be capable, confident, creative and understand the importance of coming to practice prepared. Sing? Great. Don't? That's fine. If you're interested, are committed to putting in the time and effort in order to sound good and want to have a good time making music while earning a few $$$, we'd definitely like to hear from you.

Members Of Band

We're a sane, drug free group front by a female vocalist who rocks it. We're all in our mid 50s to early 70s. We'll welcome anyone who has ability, and a feel for the music we play; someone who is committed to doing his/her "homework" and is okay with playing casual gigs. (approximately once-twice every 6 week whenever possible...we like to freshen the set list between performances!) The plan for 2019 is to hook up with area promoters and transition from the bar circuit to playing festivals and fairs. On board? Let us know by dropping us a line: thedarlahoodband at g mail dot com. Or send us a message via our page. Audio links or samples would be appreciated but are not a deal breaker. Auditions will be held on a first come, first served basis.
