Established cover band (over 7 years) with gigs booked solid into 2015 is looking for an experienced lead vocalist and frontman to replace ours; who will be leaving due to a job change.

You should have experience fronting a band, have a 'catalog' of memorized songs, and be able to sing as well as solid transportation and good gear.

The band plays 2 gigs/month in the greater metro area. We do bar gigs as well as special event, private parties, etc... Recently we've done a large beach party, a post-race party at Cedar Lake Speedway, the KQRS Rock The Boat Cruise, and a 1200 person special event on Nicollet Island. Rehearsals are as needed to ramp up and learn new material. Members are expected to come to rehearsal prepared.

Band is made up of solid, professional, reliable musicians that pride themselves on a good show.

Material is primarily 80-90s upbeat rock with some country and pop thrown in. We play what gets crowds going, and not our favorites.

We are a fun group of people and like to have fun whether we're playing or rehearsing.

Replies should include a summary of your past experience, list of songs you know, and ideally audio or video from past performance(s). See KickTheDOgBand.com or Kick The Dog Band on Facebook for more info.

Persistence is a great advantage to any songwriter who wants to multiply his or her success—because most other people have given up on their innate ability to persist on a given course.

Successful creative people assume that their future achievements rely on investing in actions that may not pay off today but that when taken consistently and persistently over time will sooner or later bear fruit.

Habitually commit. Commitment is one of the things that there is a shortage of.

Put your attention on your music. You get what you put your attention on.
- Grant Cardone.

Is this you? The Doors didn't have a bass player, they had Ray. Can you play a bass line on one board and liquid jazz key fills on another all at the same time?

I had a Manzerak lined up for my Door tribute band project, but his relocation to the Twin Cities fell through.

I have Morrison's look and sound down, and I have a solid Densmore committed to the project, and I believe we have our Kreiger. I'd like to try as a 4 piece to start (in studio, the Door used a bass guitar on many tracks, but typically they did not when live), though I'm not completely closed to the idea of adding a bass player as a 5th member, especially if he/she happens to play saxophone and/or harmonica :-)

Goal is fun not fortune, quality not quantity, staying local, rehearsing twice a week until we have 2-3 sets down, and then once a week ideally with 2-3 gigs per month.

Shoot me some mail with your phone number if you would like to know more.

Here is me singing a little Doors and Cream with a prior band last summer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxCVY-11saA&autoplay=1

Do you write but not sing? Male vocalist available…

You’re a very good songwriter, maybe you’re brilliant. But there’s just one thing: you don’t have the greatest singing voice. Maybe pretty good – just not good enough to really sell the GREAT song you’ve just written.

I am a male vocalist with many styles under my belt: Rock, Country, Alternative, Metal, R&B, Standards, surf music…you name it.

Read what one of our newest client/ friend has to say about working with
Vocalist/ Producer Jon Statham:

I don't know where to begin. I am thrilled to have discovered the multi talents of Jon Statham. He has taken one of my compositions and turned it into a classic. A true genius at work. If you want a professional, creative, master’s touch and the best rendition your song could possibly have, then you must trust your writing to Jon. After hearing what he did to my first songs, I am planning many more as soon as possible.

You: good player, fun, relaxed but focused, settled into your life but still love to play so looking to balance band with family, do not need band money to make ends meet, very comfortable being entertaining, and enjoy short walks at midnight through crowded dance floors ...

Us: established - 75 shows under our belt in 3 years, guitar-driven bar band / cover band danceable variety rockers, engaging, skilled but not unnecessarily serious, do it for the thrill of playing great music for people having lots of fun, firmly committed to band/family balance and play out once every 2-3 weeks, by strict design.

If it sounds like we may have a band-guitarist match, please drop us a response with why you think so.

I am a guitarist, male, 26-years-old, working with a singer, female, 22-years-old, to make demos for some songs I've written. We also want to create a band in which we play these songs, as well as more to come in the future, and some covers as well. We're looking for individuals with positive attitudes and have a passion for playing music, age range 18-32. What we have in mind is to go all the way. Record at least an album, play shows regularly, tour, maybe even...make it big (well, we certainly wouldn't object to making it that far!).

The demos we have been working on are not yet complete, so for now I'm unable to show you the songs with her voice for the next week or two. However, so I have at least something to show for now, there are some of the early versions of the songs, that I just threw together. Listen to them here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL17a-6C5A5u3GV07uSn5rzN-zw2MHmpX-

What we are looking for is a bassist and a drummer. Maybe a keyboardist. I have, for now, free rehearsal space that's 20 minutes north of the twin cities. This is at least where the rehearsals will take place, but we can get something in a different location if that ends up being the best option.

For the bassist, we need someone that can play nice melodic lines, rather than just always emulating what the guitar is doing. I do have a Bassman head with a few available speakers for you to use, if you would like.

For the drummer, I'm a little bit picky. There are the basic requirements, being that you should be able to play up to the skill that the programmed drums are displaying on the demos. And also, not always changing the beats so that it ruins the songs. But, I also need you to use a set with at least four toms. The stuff I write is definitely not written with a four-piece set in mind. Also, I would need you to use a set that has two bass drums. It's fine if you use a double pedal with the second bass drum just used as a dummy, but it just gives a much better stage presence that way. However, to make matters much easier, I have an eight-piece Tama Superstar that you can use for rehearsals (makes it a whole lot easier that you don't have to carry around your drums every time you jam, doesn't it?) and performances. Though...you might wanna bring your own cymbals.

Aside from all that, there's the basics-no drug problems, no inflated egos, must be reliable, have reliable transportation, all that jazz. Just be sure you read all the important details. Hope to hear from you!
