ABOUT

I'm looking for serious musicians to form a tribute band together in the San Francisco bay area. It's the music of Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire.

I'm looking for a dynamic front male vocalist with strong falsetto range to emulate Phillip Bailey's voice. Also, I need strong vocals that can emulate Terry Kath's and Peter Cetera's voice as well. All members of the band will need to sing falsetto parts! These are big footsteps to fill!

I'm looking for a percussionist, a keyboardist, a rhythm guitar/keyboards, a lead/rhythm guitarist, a trumpet player, a trombone player and a sax player that plays: alto, tenor, soprano and flute would be a bonus. I'm thinking about potential background singers for future use.

I have over 4 hours of live material that is well orchestrated in song order placement that will be used for a 2 1/2 hour show. The material uses elements of pop, rock, Latin, jazz, soul and r & b.
The has been an overwhelming response by booking venues. Once final musicians are in place, rehearsals will be conducted in the Campbell area studios. With a video promo shoot up in Oakland.

If interested, please send me a video of your performance of a Chicago or a E,W & F tune to me at "wbdrums"Bandmix.
