Melody-Lead Guitarist Needed.
We are bass, drum, keys, sax, and vocalists looking for first, and possibly second, guitars.
The band has a focus: The mission statement of the band is to "Play dance music to an over-40 audience of happy dancers". Generally speaking we are playing Adult Dancable music.
Playlist is centered on classic rock-and-roll, some funk, 40's to modern tunes played for over-40 dance audience. Typically our stuff is beyond simple three-chord guitar band stuff: Classic, dancable rock&roll, 50's to modern, some lite jazz, some standards, some quasi-Latin, some country, we are aiming for variety built around a core of R&R classics.
Not looking to jam, we want people looking to develop, cover increasingly complex material, and have the intent of playing out a few times per month, more-or-less, considering the job and family responsibilities of the players.
This is not: a metal band, blues band, jam band, slacker band, garage band, arena band, country band, power trio, easy-listening band, etc. No heavy disto-screamer players, no Gene Autry-style chord strummers, please. We need a person who can actually play the guitar, who owns quality equipment, who is reliable. Team player with good attitude is important!
We practice at the Beaches, Saturday afternoons. Covers mostly at present. No beer/weed at practice.
Age is not an issue, we span several generations, but most have long-since seen forty and want the style of those who lived it. We want to keep the bar high regarding quality.
Eagles, Hendrix, Cocker, Beatles, Morrison, Doobies, Skynnyrd, Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Bon Jovi, Madonna, Doors, Steppenwolf, Sinatra, and Sade: If you identify with these then shoot me a text.
