    Hello, My name is Mark, I'm bandleader of an 11 piece horn band from lower bucks county PA. (Langhorne-Just North of Northeast Philadelphia)We need to make some changes to build the band. We are in need of a replacement bass player, the player that would applie need be well versed and open minded to all "YES ALL" styles of music. This is a private party band in it for the work not a joy ride. The player also need have pro chopps leaving the ego at the door. Bottom line this is a pro level act with agent and work booked, the player need walk in the door a fit.
    You can get more information on the band at our web site www.thecitylightsband.com or e-mail me at musicman0705@cs.com
    Thank You
    Mark

    If you look at the promo pic on their home page, it looks like only one or two of those folks made it to the gig on the pictures page. What's up with that?

    I posted here as a suggestion from my sax player, he told me there are pro's in this group. Guy's if your here and have interest please step up. The band is for real are goals are 50 to 60 gigs a year all private and corp, stuff. The work we have done up to now has paid very well, the work booked for what is left in this year and next also pays well.
    Thanx

    There are plenty of pros here, give the thread a little time, and you might get a response.

    I would be very interested if I lived in Philly.

    Good news: You get to play Chicago!

    Bad news: You get to split the check 12 ways.

    Don't quit your day jobs, folks. ;)
