    Cover band based in the East Bay part of the San Francisco Bay Area is seeking a bassist to replace our departing friend.

    We are a 5-piece - lead guitarist/male vocalist, keys, drums, bassist (preferably with at least harmony vocals), and me, the female vocalist. Lead guitarist and I share fronting duties. Rehearse as needed in the East Bay (usually 2-3x per month, mainly to work in new material and tighten the show). Play out 1-3x a month at bars/clubs, outdoor events, private parties, etc.

    We are in our 30s-50s with day jobs and families. We are in this for the music, and to have a great time on stage, entertain the crowds, and make a little extra cash. Looking for an experienced player who can get along with other people in the band.

    Our song list is a variety from the sixties to current charts - danceable tunes to keep people on the floor. We're adding more funk/soul to the repertoire due to audience demand, plus more modern tunes. We are hoping a new bassist will add vocal harmonies to the mix. A few lead vocals a night would be a big plus, but not mandatory.

    If this sounds interesting, please email me at [email protected]. Include links to demos, band websites, MySpace, YouTube vids, etc. Please provide your phone number and email address - I'll be in touch to talk more and schedule an audition if the fit seems right.

    Scheduling auditions for next Sunday afternoon, August 2.
