Wanted: Lead guitar player/back-up singer for 60s-70s classic rock cover band
WE ARE: A 4-piece 60s-70s classic rock cover band (not a tribute band), and we also play a few 80s-90s classic rock covers. We emphasize tight 3-part harmonies to cover the Beatles, Byrds, Eagles, etc.
We rehearse about once a week at my home studio in Mill Valley, usually on a week night, depending on our work schedules. We have our own pro gear, system and transportation.
We gig generally 1-2 times a month on Saturday nightsâ€”mostly at bars that pay $250-$300 in San Francisco, San Mateo, Cotati, and other Bay Area cities. We also occasionally play higher-paying private parties. We all have day jobs and play for the love of the music, not to make a living from it or to become rock stars.
YOU ARE: A reliable, mature, and versatile lead guitarist who can sing back-up and harmony and who knows how to blend well with the bandâ€™s soundâ€”-no ear-shattering Van Halen arpeggios, soaring Satriani 20-minute solos, or metal shredding–just straight-ahead tasteful leads covering classics by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Byrds, Eagles, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Stevie Ray Vaughan, etc.
You are also a non-smoker with no substance abuse issues, drama, or inflated rock star attitude. You also donâ€™t mind being in a band with musicians who are over 50.
You’d be satisfied limiting your lead vocals to only a few songs per set.
