01-21-12 – Philadelphia, PA>New York City, NY – Putting together a covers band for gigs. Right now we have 2 guitars and bass and we need a drummer. All members have had experience in the local music scene playing covers and originals and we all have day jobs.
We are looking to put together a decent bar band playing mostly “roots” or Americana music. This includes rock, R & B, country, blues, and other styles. We do not want to be a jukebox; we want to be able to put our own spin on the cover tunes. Hopefully we can also start sneaking in originals as well.
It is important to know that we want to have fun doing this. This does not mean that we do not put the time in to put together a decent set, we do put the time in at rehearsal.
We are also renting a rehearsal space, so please do not waste our time or yours.
We are looking for a drummer that:
-has a professional attitude
-has a decent set of drums and knows how to maintain them
-knows how to tailor their kit and playing style for specific venues
-knows how to find the “one”
-knows the difference between “practice” and “rehearsal”
-has a decent knowledge of different types of music
-does not have a alcohol/drinking problem
-has own transportation
-has stage and recording experience
-is in between the ages of 30-60. We are willing to go younger but prefer a more seasoned player.
If you think you fit the bill then please respond with an e-mail address, and cell phone number so we can send you MP3 files of 4 songs and a location for audition
