Established Gigging Band Needs Bassist
Category: Band Gigs
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Gender: Male and Female
Ethnicity: All ethnicities
I play guitar in a cover/original band. We currently have a Vocalist, a Drummer, a Lead + Rhythm Guitarist, and we like to do vocal harmonies too. Our cover gig income is invested into our originals project which means we cannot pay you to be in the band. Our money goes towards everything needed to fund and further our career as aspiring artists. I promise we're not stiffing anyone.
We play rock/hard rock music in our originals. With covers, we span from about 60-80 songs covering the 80's, 90's & 00's. Our practice schedule is twice a week and we typically have 2-4 shows a month. Our goal is to tour and further our career while spreading our name everywhere.
What we're looking for:
A Bass player. Not a guy that secretly prefers guitar, playing piano, or drums...a Bass Player. Someone that loves, I don't know, Flea, Getty Lee, Les Claypool, Victor Wooten. I'm not saying you have to sound or play like these guys however, I've noticed in my experience with people that actually LOVE the bass, these are the people they tend to reference. We're looking for personality over ability. We want someone that's ON FIRE with passion about becoming a rock star. Not a flake, an alcoholic, a dead beat, lazy or delusional. We want a GOOD DUDE with talent and personable skills. We're looking for desire, commitment, consistency with a POSITIVE attitude. We're also looking for someone between the ages of 26-32 (pretty selective, youth+longevity).
Phew...I know that's asking a lot. Here's why I think it's necessary:
I want to filter musicians with heavy drug addictions, money problems, transportation issues, essentially anything you are unable to handle in real life WILL BLEED INTO YOUR BAND. We will do everything to avoid that. Problems happen, we know. We're cool with that. We're not cool with consistent personal problems that don't change. We want this. If you do too, I promise that you'll fit in and be at home.
