We are an agent backed cover band that covers Top 40 dance hits of pop, rock, r&b, and county. We gig 3-6 times a month (wknds) in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area as well as travel to areas such as St Cloud, N. Dakota, Wisconsin and resorts up north. A skilled guitar player has been our one missing piece since day one. We currently have an excellent sub who will play with us until we find our perfect guy. Our perfect guy is a solid player with a great ear for tone who has a lively, fun stage personality, looks the part of rock star and doesn't just want to show up in a boring t-shirt, is willing to have fun with simple choreography moves with us on stage, can sing solid backup harmonies with good pitch and is a cool, drama-free guy. We are a fun and talented group of 2 guys and 2 girls who get along well and have lot of fun on stage together and we are in search of our permanent 5th piece. Please send resume and video clips if you have them. We are looking to set up auditions in the next two weeks. Serious, non-flaky inquiries only. We are a smoke free /drug free group of light drinkers. Responsible professionals need only apply. Thanks!

I know that you work hard at writing your songs.
And you know your vision and the direction that you want it to go in.

None of this would be possible without the care of a competent producer who understands your vision too!

From start to finish, from arrangement right down to exact genre you are going for – we will get it done!

Check out a few recent projects:


What is your vision?
Let's Talk.

Life Tragic has been around since 2003 (used to be named Trick Daisy). We have recently lost a member and are looking for someone to sing and place guitar (some leads if they desire). We are working on our 2nd CD and are retooling our 3 set cover song list to be more bar friendly. Still rock, but trimming out some of the heaviest material. www.lifetragic.com We play 4-5 a month, plus random original shows. Call John at 612-382-4895 if interested. It would be helpful if you had a demo of yourself playing with another band or recordings to send. Send demos to john@lifetragic.com. We are easy going guys that take the music seriously but like to have fun too!

My influences include Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jeff Healey, Willie Dixon, Robin Ford, Allman Brothers, Zepplin and ZZ Top. I am very easy going, professional attitude and equipment as well as drug and alcohol free. Would prefer filling an open position in a group with solid bookings and very limited travel. Rob

No need to reply unless actually ready to do something - getting the runaround is boring/irritating. Read website, pictures, and listen to song before replying.

Also, he is extremely reliable and easy to work with. I have worked with Jon for years, and heard him sing on a wide variety of projects. Whatever your vocal talent needs, Jon delivers. Highly recommended.”

I'm trying to gather some market data on people who use effect pedals in their rigs. If this sounds like you, I'd really appreciate your input! I have a short, 9 question survey at http://stomplist.com that should take a few minutes. As a bonus, those who provide an email address at the end of the survey are entered for a drawing to win a $50 Guitar Center gift card. Emails are used strictly for the drawing, and will be deleted after the survey has been run and the winner has been contacted. I hate spam as much as much as anyone else.

We are a group of experienced musicians in the Twin Cities areas who love playing for dance halls, weddings, corporate functions, parties, and for a variety of gigs.
The main concern that we have had has been that it is very difficult to find musicians dedicated to one band, or do not have several other obligations preventing them from practicing or gigging regularly. Being in a progressive band can be very difficult for those with multiple outside commitments. There are many excellent musicians out there who play in multiple bands, but this causes severe scheduling coordination problems within a band. We are looking for a few more people who will commit to one band. Having other musical activities is great, but we want the main commitment to be to one band.

We know how to get gigs and do a fantastic job of entertaining the crowd. We aim to project a high class, professional, show band image. We specialize in dance music in which people from a wide range of ages can identify. Our intention is to play mainly on Friday’s and Saturday’s about 4-6 times per month. We love funk, oldies, soul, R&B, blues, and classic to current pop and dance rock. There is a horn section.

If you are reliable, talented, people-oriented, interested in playing with a responsible group of adults who love to perform, have fun, and be professional and active on stage, let’s talk. If you are interested in being part of a band with these goals, we are looking forward to hearing from you. Please leave your name, the instrument(s) you play, singing ability, phone number, and best times to reach you.
