Forming a cover band and have three pieces in place. Just need a bass player.
All the musicians have come from an original music background, and we'll be playing covers for fun. All musicians are excellent players who can play in a lot of different styles of music. The drummer (important to all bass players) is an outstanding drummer who is a great groove player and can play in any style, but his wheelhouse is funk, jazz and groove stuff. We won't gig more than once a month. Practice once a week.
We'll be playing covers in venues that usually have a mix of both original and cover music.
We're looking to play some recognizable stuff, and some obscure, but again, it will mostly be placed in front of an original music audience, and they'll certainly be more open than the tradition cover crowd.
We play to play a lot of stuff from bands like the Velvet Underground, the Clash (especially their reggae influenced stuff), the Cure, the Replacements, Elvis Costello, the Ramones, the Flaming Lips, R.E.M., B-52s,the Stooges, Cake, the Happy Mondays, New Order.
If you're interested please contact us ASAP with details about yourself.
To get an idea of how the drummer plays, here's a link to a song from his current original band. http://www.reverbnation.com/thebeatmusique/songs
