    Band is called 5th Element. I have played for these guys and they play the usual wedding repertoire like disco, Englebert, Pretty Woman, In The Mood, Tequila, Car Wash, and lots of other stuff, including a couple of pleasant surprises like the Buckinghams' Don't You Care. They play mostly bars these days but want to do weddings too. They need a permanent member who is willing to do 6-8 gigs a month at $100+ a man, and they'll get them as soon as they find someone who can commit to the schedule (I can't or you wouldn't be seeing this ad).

    Let me know if this fits, and I'll tell them about you.

    I'm interested - this is just the kind of thing I was thinking of getting into as an alternative to the classic rock cover bar gigs I've been doing.


    Edit: I'd love to do this but I can't commit to such a full gigging schedule at this time.


    Good sound to this band, though. Looks like a good gig.
