Temple of the Dad (TOTD) is looking for an experienced bass player for our hard rock/alternative cover band. What we are looking for is a solid, dependable player who really loves what they are doing. We are professionals and the quality of our performance is of great importance but we like to have a great time too.. balance is everything!! Along with a male lead singer we also have a female singer - Lacy Younger who has a solo career but also is a member of TOTD. We also play as her backing band at some great venues playing mostly originals. We play mostly clubs in the Point Loma / Ocean Beach area on a regular basis, but are starting to play at clubs all around San Diego. We've played The House of Blues (the main stage), Humphrey's (Backstage & the main stage) The Belly Up and Pala Casino. We play parties and special events if they sound like fun and give us good exposure. Most of us are dads (Get it: Temple of the Dad) but you dont have to be. Sometimes we will do fundraising events for schools and some select charities (SD Autism Society, Susan Koman Breast Cancer, Humane Society, etc. . .) We have a good following and only play on weekends. We sometimes do live TV and radio with Lacy to promote shows. Some of the bands we cover are: AC/ DC, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, The Black Crowes, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Stone Temple Pilots, Jet, Queen, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers, etc... We are scheduling auditions now! If you are interested, please send a link or music files, it is important that we 'HEAR' you or see some sort of performance to check out the goods! We simply don't have time to mess around, there are gigs to be played.. Also a photo or two wouldn't hurt. Any questions? Below are links to our sites & some videos. . .Cheers!
