ABOUT

Function Band seeks Dynamic Drummer.

About us
We are all experienced musicians performing as a 5 piece band (vox, guitar, keys, bass, drums) playing many genres including Funk, Disco, Pop, Soul, Motown and Rock.

Gigs are paid and mainly revolve around Pubs, Clubs and Functions within the Midlands, with the ambition to get into doing more weddings and other private events.

Between the existing group, we have some great skills to help propel this already including a sprinkling of good musicianship, social & digital media, graphic design, music theory & sound engineering; as well as some existing relationships with venue managers, promoters and agencies.

What we need:
Gig experience
Good Ability so can play with feel and dynamics – As we play many genres, a whole multitude of venue sizes and types.
Professional easy-going attitude.
Ambition to learn and grow - For example, we are perfecting harmonies and again undertake many music styles.
Own equipment and transport
Availability to rehearse and gig regularly, we are aiming to gig 30+ times per year and rehearse a couple of times a month. Initially, this may be more frequent to get the new member up to speed (as needed).
Ability to learn material en masse - As we have a song list pushing 3 hours.


Nice-to-haves that would set you apart:
Any recording experience
Interest and time to contribute towards promotion of the group and bookings.
Flexible equipment, such as the ability to play percussion/Cajon and/or electric kit/MIDI trigger pads when needed.
Backing Vocals
Ideally a similar age bracket, late 20s - 30s.


If this sounds like a good fit for you, please get in touch with details about you, any references to your playing (audio and/or video) and questions.

We are looking to audition in the coming weeks in Birmingham city centre (Mushrooms Studios B7 4LT) and move forward due to our previous drummer starting a family and pursuing other interests.
