Bass Player Wanted
We’re a new cover band based in the Coleshill area and all we need is a great Bass Player & we’re movin’.
We’re all experienced musicians – having played in a variety of bands (playing new material & covers) over the years. Our line-up is a lead singer (who plays guitar), a lead guitarist (who also sings) and a drummer who plays a hybrid acoustic / electronic kit & sampler. If the song demands it, we’ll incorporate our own high-quality keyboard samples, sounds and loops live (with and without a click as required) - which enables us to create a very authentic sound.
In terms of music style & the covers we’ll play - this hasn’t been set in stone (we’d really like it to be a full band decision). We expect though, that the set list will feature ‘eclectic tunes with a bit of punch’ (some tracks will be well known & some a little less so). We’ll also look to do our own take on key songs and the plan is to play music from different genres to a high standard. On top of that - the aim is to ‘really get the crowd going’, have a blast & earn a bit of cash at the same time.
We’re well set up too - currently we rehearse in the Coleshill area (which is where we leave all our gear set up). We have our own 2K PA, 32 channel desk, lights - the full shebang.
Our new Bass Player will need to be proficient in a number of styles and play to a high standard. (Backing Vocals would be an advantage). Own transport is essential too, because we have lots of gear to cart around. We’re open on age – great ability and gelling with the band are more important criteria for us. In terms of our age range, we’d describe ourselves as ‘ripe’ (not old).
Outside of the band we’ve all got professional careers, we really do play for fun, but we’re serious about creating a great sound. Early doors we’d expect to rehearse once a week (as we get the set up & running) and we’ll look to gig roughly twice a month. We have some serious connections on the festival circuit too – so we’d look to maximise playing these kinds of gigs, which’ll be fun.
If the above sounds interesting we’d love to hear from you.
