Malpractice is a Long Island, NY-based classic rock cover band, currently consisting of 7 dedicated musicians. We’ve been together for about 15 years. All members are in their 60s and make a living in non-music endeavors, but are proficient on their respective instruments. We exist because of our soul-satisfying love for this genre of music, and to have fun doing it well for 3 hours/week. The music we cover runs the gamut of Steely Dan, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, The Band, Dr. John, The Eagles, Leon Russell, BS&T, The Rolling Stones, N.R.P.S., Eric Clapton, etc. We are not intended to be a money-making endeavor. We do play 2 (sometimes more) gigs per year for which we do get paid modestly.
We practice, generally, once per week at either one of two, fully-equipped home studios located in Dix Hills or Commack, on top-shelf equipment. Participating musicians need bring only their own personal instruments if they so desire (no amps necessary). No monetary contributions are required of members. Keyboardists instruments are provided. Practice sessions begin on Sunday mornings at 8:30 A.M. and go until 11:00 or 11:30 A.M. Current instrumentation is: 2 guitarists, 1 bassist, 1 drummer / percussionist, 1 pedal steel guitarist, 1 pianist / organist, and 1 woodwinds player. We occasionally gig with a 3 piece horn section.
We are in need of an organist / pianist / keyboardist. Ability to sing is a plus. Sight reading music is a plus. The only requirements are that you have good chops, can improvise, love playing music, don’t need an income from doing this, are dedicated, reliable, and have personal transportation.
