|UPDATE: BASS PLAYER HAS BEEN FOUND. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED.
Hi all, we're looking for a Male or Female Bass Player. Our previous (and original) bass player decided it was time to take on a second job to put some cash in his bank account, before he retires (yes, he was the oldest dude in the band). - This meant he couldn't commit to gigs and decided to call it a day. Very sad, but family always comes first in this band.. always!
ABOUT THE BAND
So far, we have 6 shows booked in the first half of 2021.
In regards to prior shows/experience, I can only say that as of end of January 2020, we had 16 shows booked for this year.... In the end, we did 1 gig in March, a livestream in June and a Main stage gig at Musicland in December.
In the last 3 years, we've played at Venues such as Musicland, Lucky13Garage, The Acorn, 177 Russell (Billboards), The Corner Hotel, MrBoogeyManBar, Gorilla Bar... We have over 700 Followers on our FB Page.
Check out the links below...
AND, we're still getting our "eye-in", AND there's been some real cool support for the band. Probably looking at 2021 to do around 2 gigs a month. (we might squeeze three in, if it works for everyone)
We rehearse at GM Studio. So, it would be cool if you were based in North or the North East or North West.
All existing band members are family oriented, but cut lose once we're on stage. Our age range is from 45 to 57... Still young and even younger at heart!
We have a female vocalist. Lisa is great fun and just doesn't stand still.
We play songs from Lennie Kravitz, Noiseworks, INXS, Transvision Vamp, Screaming Jets, Bowie, Divinyls, Melissa Etheridge, P!nk, Wilde, Benatar, Lover Boy, Tommy Tutone, Barnsey, Powder Finger, Free, KISS...
We're about fun and entertainment... but the music's played tight... Music should be fun to play... it shouldn't be a chore, nor should it feel like work.
We don't play everything "just like the record..." That's boring!
You're probably an easy going, enthusiastic (or cool) person and probably in a similar family oriented situation as the rest of us... Obviously, you will have great, reliable gear and transport and you love playing music. ...and you're reliable too :-) You will have had recent prior experience with Cover Bands.
Call me for more details... 'would love to chat with you!!!
