The Weapons


Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar.


We're not kids, dreamers or have delusions regarding our talent. We have a very basic rock sound spawned from a time when Max's Kansas City and CBGB's were in their hayday. Today, we are not committed to any one 'sound'. We are educated adults who are not trying to change the world but have a little fun in it. We gig in NYC and can get more gigs. This band is not our career, but our careers afford us the time and minor expenses to enjoy playing in the band. We play originals and covers, but tend to make covers sound original. Currently we rehearse 1 to 2 times a month, Gig - maybe once a month, that can change depending on new band members.

What we're looking for in a Guitarist...

General: Male or Female

Experience: Enough to be able to play live sets in a downtown NYC club/bar with the usual amount of apprehension.

Attitude: creative, intelligent, mature, responsible and team player. A desire to 'raise the bar' in what you expect from yourself and the band.

Skills/Abilities: Play/create arrangements in a 2 Guitar player/bass/drums setup. Able/willing to sing backup vocals. Able/willing to express your ideas and tell the band when you think something sucks.

Gear: Suitable for gigging and the means to move and maintain it

Please, NO DRUGGIES, Stoners or Leaches! (We are responsible, hard working grown ups)

The closer you live near Northern Queens, the better

If interested, e-mail - tell us a little bit about yourself, some audio (if possible), what groups/artists inspire you - we'll contact you ASAP.

Above all, if you are a guitar player considering the possiblity of really enjoying playing in a band, not dealing with pompous arrogant egos and being part of a creative process - we might be the right band for you.
