PRO Male vocalist age 46 available for existing Cover/Original band. Not looking to form from ground, looking to join pre-existing group. Can sing anything but lean towards 70's Rock and Country Rock/Pop. It's difficult to pinpoint due to my versatility and the fact I am very open minded.

Not looking to Gig every weekend by any means, in fact, even once per month would be fine. Just seeking some down to earth easy going players based in or around the twin cities who like to have fun. We'll meet, Jam and see where it goes!

I'll be happy to share some links to any interested bands if your response catches my attention. I "GUARANTEE" Extraordinary vocal talent and showmanship. I wouldn't waste anyone's time. Promise!

Please respond to:

and NOT this ad. "Thanks"

Established cover band (over 7 years) with gigs booked solid into 2015 is looking for an experienced lead singer and frontman to replace ours who will be relocating in a few months.

You should have experience fronting a band, have a 'catalog' of memorized songs, and be able to sing.

The band plays 2-3 gigs/month in the greater metro area. Rehearsals are as needed to ramp up and learn 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 video from past performance(s).

If you have current substance abuse issues, no car, cant afford a microphone, havent been videoed singing since the camera-phone was invented, have only done karoke, and/or need lyric sheets for a three-song audition, you probably arent a good fit.

I am a guitarist, male, 25-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. 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:

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!
