03-07-12 – San Francisco, CA>Reno, NV – We are a gigging band that plays Oldschool/Funk/R&B in need of a full time Keyboardist. Our influences range from: (Earth, Wind and Fire, The Whispers, Mint Condition, Kool and the Gang, Tower of Power, Luther Vandross, Prince, Boys to Men) to name a few. Gigs are lined up at least 2/month mostly on weekends. We are seeking out primarily corporate gigs and get into a regular spot to play at once a month.
At the moment we are a 8 man group consisting of the following members:
- Acoustic Guitar/Vocalist
- Electric Guitar
- 3 Vocalists
We are looking for a Keyboardist with the following qualities:
- Can play R&B, Soul, Funk, Oldschool, Reggae
- Willing to rehearse at least 1 time a week on Thrusdays 4:30pm – 7:00pm (Sometimes more the week before a gig)
- Can make it to practice in Milpitas (On Time)
- Can learn material before showing up to rehearsals (We don’t want to learn songs during rehearsal. So do your homework)
- Has no other group band commitments (It’s okay if they get side gigs. But Pacific Soul should be priority.)
- 21+ preferred
We are really looking for a keyboardist that can fully commit to one band and willing to practice. If you think you are too good to rehearse and barely get by on a gig to get paid, we are not interested. In order for our group to see any progress, we need a full time keyboard player we can evolve with. Our arrangements are not like the originals and it will take rehearsals to get all the stops, changes, etc.
But we do keep in contact with a pool of musicians that we use as backups or add to specific gigs. So if that is what you are interested in, please let me know. Note: The chosen full time Keyboardists will get all our gigs! We want to uphold a level of professionalism with our group and expect the same from anyone that wants to try out.
If interested, please reply to this email and I will send you a list of our set and what key we play it in. You will be required to learn at least 2 songs and we will schedule a time for you to sit in with us. We can talk about any other details during the audition. Thanks.
