I'm helping a production company that I play for find a upright bass player for 3 shows in TX and NM next month, 9/19 & 20 in TX (Denton) and 9/21 in NM (Las Cruces). The show is a tribute to Sun Records with tunes like Red Hot, Mystery Train, Good Golly Miss Molly, Blue Suede Shoes... you get the idea. This is a stage show with live band on stage, and whoever does the gig should be a dynamic performer.
I imagine there will be rehearsals just before the shows but I don't have details on where. Possibly Tucson AZ where company HQ is.
Transportation, hotel, some meals are all provided. Bass amp also provided and will be schlepped and set up for you, all you will need is your axe and a preamp if you use one. (They can even supply a bass, but it's not the most awesome upright in the world....)
I know everyone's heard this before, but if things go well this will lead to more work. I've been working for this company (Lonely Street Productions) for 3.5 years and the work is steady. In fact I'm not doing the TX and NM shows because I'm playing another show for the company in IL. www.lonelystreet.com
