(I posted in another thread about how we had a singer lined up, then he bailed on us..."Telephone Conversation I Just Had" was the thread title...we have upcoming paying gigs on the calendar). We auditioned another veteran lead singer last night. Awesome guy. Very cool dude, with a GREAT voice. I mean, this guy would be the best lead vocalist I've ever played with, by a mile. He's coming off a 10 year stint with a well known cover band in this area. He and the other guys simply got tired and burnt out, and amicably decided to call it quits. Anyway, his audition went great (as expected). Said he liked us and likes our set list. Sounds good right? Problem is, he's not sure if he wants to do another band right now or not. He's contemplating doing solo acoustic shows. I can't blame him at all, and get where he's coming from. He did say our local and relatively light show schedule was appealing to him. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed. I was perusing the local craigslist and other area musicians classifieds this morning. There are LITERALLY no "lead singer available" postings at all. Not even "I'm a total newb looking to join my first band" type posts. Nada, zip, zilch. I feel like if this guy says no to us, we may be screwed for right now. We'd have to go back to being a three piece hack garage band for the time being, which I'm dreading. Fingers crossed.
