Bassist Needed for Pro NO DOUBT Tribute band

Discussion in 'Wanted: Bass Players' started by GroveGangsters, Feb 1, 2021.

  1. Hello community, looking for a passionate, long-term bassist for a pro tribute band project currently coming off the ground. This is a very serious band with exceptionally talented and experienced musicians. We currently have a series of professionally shot audio and video releasing soon along with an official promo video and website in production.

    Due to our former bassist pursuing his dreams in classical, we need the right bassist to handle the tight, rock rhythm and clean funk feel for this project. The bass lines are one of the more technical aspects to No Doubt’s sound and we are dedicated to covering all sides of their career in music from the 80s to now. Must be proficient in playing ska, alternative rock, reggae, punk, new wave, ect.

    We are a 6 piece band with drummer, guitarist, vocal, trumpet, and trombone/keyboards. Located in NJ & NYC areas.

    Paid rehearsals and gigs

    Please respond with your info, any media of your playing and any questions. I’ll go over all details. You can also text and/or email me at: [email protected]
    267 317 6889

    Auditions will be held ASAP once I get some contenders. Songs to be played for auditions are the following. Linked are the versions preferred along with some bass reference videos, an example of TONY KANAL (no doubt’s bassist) and pro recorded live performance audio from our band (no overdub).

    :) Thanks for the promo and tagging me here!!!

    Ordinarily this would be something I'd love to do, my band however is booked pretty solidly once the world opens up again. I will keep my eyes and ears open for others who might be interested.

    @GroveGangsters I wish you the best. It sounds great!

    I played in a no doubt tribute for a while. It was the hardest gig I ever have done! It was harder than the Tool tribute I did a few years earlier.. Loved it tho!

    I was a little bit fried after playing ONE No Doubt song at an audition yearsnyears ago. Good stuff!

    Also, apropos of nothing, Tragic Kingdom is one of my favorite songs of all time.
