ABOUT

Starting a "horn" band in Tucson. Formerly managed same in Houston. Look up Texas Brass Rock Band online and on Facebook. Looking for well-balanced adults with careers that like to perform on occassion and have fun. No drama and no drugs. I will be the manager and director and do not require assistance in that area. We will play nice bars, corporate parties, country club gigs, weddings, parties, etc. Not much into 2AM gigs anymore. We will gig about once a month.

Members Of Band

I will start on drums because tempo is critical. We will use a metronome as we learn. Later we will get a drummer but he/she must be tempo-oriented and not "push" songs. Fancy fills not a must. Looking for Bass Player, Guitar Player, Horn Section. Being able to read music, play multiple instruments, and sing backup is a plus. We will pay attention to intonation, dynamics, balance, and tempo. Need musicians, not folks that only sing. We will read charts.

EQUIPMENT

A lot of equipment - we will be a 7 piece band to start and hopefully everyone will play more than one instrument
