    Whattup TBers, fellow bass player here in need of some assistance from the community......

    My band, The Cosmonauts, is looking for lead guitar player in the NYC area. We play a variety of different music, but our main sound is hunkered down in a Stones-esque type swing that is a bit funky. The band consists of myself on bass and singing back-up vocals, our front man also on back up guitar, and a drummer. We practice once a week on average for 4-6 hours in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and play out in the NYC area about once a month, sometimes more. We have a good local following and have been doing 50+ at the doors consistently in major Manhattan venues.

    We are all serious and professional musicians who are pursuing a recording deal collectively as a band. That said, we're laid back guys who love playing music. Our practice sessions are long, but they're always a blast and we knock back a few beers during them.

    Our influences include: The Rolling Stones, Led Zep, The Beatles, The Clash, The Smiths, Roots Reggae, Joy Division, 70s Funk - especially Nile Rogers, Prince, and much more

    - Ages 20-35
    - Punctual and professional
    - Stable financially and able to pay for band related costs such as rehearsal time etc
    - Versatile, technical, and creative guitar playing.
    - Must be able to tear on lead lines and play excellent rhythm guitar.

    I posted a couple of unfinished mixes from our upcoming album that is in the process of mixing/mastering. These can be heard @ http://cosmonautradio.bandcamp.com/
