**CURRENTLY SEEKING BASSIST WITH GOOD BACKING VOCALS**
We are not able to send messages on here as not a premier member, but can be contacted at iCandi at virginmedia dot com
We are seeking a new bass player to take over from our current bassist by the end of 2012. We are an busy, active gigging band, though we never gig more than once per week. Most of our gigs are local to Poole/Bournemouth/Christchurch. Jools is happy to stay with us until the end of the year if necessary, but we need to start looking for a new Bass player so we have plenty of time for them to learn our sets and are ready to take over towards the end of the year.
It is ESSENTIAL that new bass player is able to provide good backing vocals/harmonies. It would be preferable if they were able to sing 3 or 4 songs lead vocals at each gig. We are looking for somebody who is ready to join an existing, gigging band - we are a friendly bunch, no egos or fisticuffs, so it is important you are able to fit in and have a laugh with us - after all, it is supposed to be FUN!
Now for the blurb.......
iCandi is predominantly a covers band with female lead vocals - but our bassist of the band takes her turn at the mic for the odd few numbers, giving us the flexibility to mix things up a bit and add some variety! We aim to cover tunes that will have an all-round appeal, not necessarily the same `standards` as played by many other local bands, including melodies from all manner of artists and eras....and most importantly songs that we all, as a band, love to play!
Some tunes are kept as near to the original as possible, then some are thrown into the mix and come out as our own take on a popular song.
We tend to vary each set-list according to venue & audience, ensuring a fresh mix of songs at each gig, rather than churning out the same routine time after time! Our repertoire is ever-expanding, as we learn more numbers after hearing newly released tunes or some long forgotten `golden oldies` that inspire us! This means our set lists are constantly evolving to include some old favourites along with a few `new` numbers to keep things up-to-date and provide enough variety to keep our own musical appetites quenched!
Everything from Aerosmith to ZZ top! We love a bit of 80's, some classic rock, some pop, Adele, Duffy and so on.... Have a look at our website icandiband co uk to see a repertoire list.
