ABOUT

We are ready to gig and are looking for an experienced synth/keyboard player to round out our sound. We're booking shows for the summer. We practice weekly in Rancho Cucamonga and are looking to play out once or twice a month. We're currently doing a 50/50 original to cover split while we write new material together. Some of the bands we cover are Echo and the Bunnymen, Simple Minds, Joy Division, The Cure, The Church and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Our originals tend to fit nicely in that mix. We all have day jobs, families, etc and are in our 30's to early 40's. We're serious about music, but not up for the drama of trying to be Rockstars. Been there, done that long ago. We have plenty of pro-gear synths, keyboards and amps, so don't let a lack of equipment hold you back. If you also play bass, guitar or have any other instrument skills, that is a serious plus. Don't let fear of a high-pressure audition freak you out. We're all pretty laid back and are in it for the fun of it. Drop us a line and we can exchange some tunes. Get in touch with us on .
