    Here are the criteria:

    The right bassist would have reliable pro-grade gear. You would not be addicted to alcohol, weed, cocaine, crack, meth, heroin, etc. You would approach the bass more like a drum kit than a guitar. You would know that the groove finds you, not the other way around. You would know how to ride the root note like a whore. You would be between the ages of 25 and 35 in good physical shape. You would have a ridiculously positive attitude. You would have no side projects. You would see the value of being “on the scene”, even when not playing a show. You would see things like winning a Grammy or playing Wembley as reasonable long-term goals. You would be happy if you never played a cover song. You would have your own vehicle. You would have a cell phone and return calls and texts quickly. You would be able to rehearse and/or gig at least 4 nights a week. You would be able to learn and play basslines verbatim from the existing catalog without any help. You would be thrilled to leave your current life and go on tour. You would not have anything to prove creatively. You would be able to sing in key. You would like 3 new best friends.

    If that sounds like you, send and email with links to any video/audio/photos of yourself playing to info@weekendriotclub.com and we'll set up an audition.
