    Posting this for a friend. Her Cuban band is losing their bassist and they're looking for a replacement. See below for a description of the band, what the gigs are currently paying, etc. Message me or post a reply if interested and I'll put you in touch with her.

    "Dear Liam,

    Thanks for writing! Our band is called Yosvany y Su Son Tropical. The group formed in September, so we are relatively new. We play traditional Cuban son, bolero, and rumba with some salsa and bachata mixed in.

    The bassist that began with us is relocating to the West Coast. We are looking for a permanent replacement. We do have some gigs that are coming up and we know bassists that can fill in for the time being, but we really want to find someone who will stick with the group and commit to regular rehearsals. The gigs so far have mostly been for private events and since we are still establishing a name for ourselves, the pay has been modest (around $50-$100 per person). Of course, we are hoping that this will improve in time.

    We have a guitarist from Spain who also does vocals, a woman on violin and vocals, my husband Yosvany on percussion, and me on vocals and maracas.

    Any advice or suggestions that you have would be greatly appreciated.
