Purple Tree


Vocalist - Tenor.


Update October 12th 2018 - This is an established gigging band.

The idea is simple - this 5 piece band is performing the songs of Deep Purple, Rainbow and Whitesnake. To that end, applicants don't have to be lookalikes or wig-a-likes, but should at least have a workable "rock" image.

This project has very high musical, performance and production standards. That won't necessarily exclude applicants with limited experience, providing you have the chops, attitude and most important - commitment and reliability.

I would expect to spend a maximum of 2 months rehearsing a 2 hours plus set, with the intention of easing the new guy in after that.

Rehearsals will be in Sc*nthorpe, Saturday or Sunday or both to suit. A lot of homework can be done on an individual basis, and full band rehearsals will have the purpose of honing the arrangement nitty gritty and production values.

We work the tribute gig circuit around the UK, and have already got the "foot in the door" at many established tribute venues. We will be looking at around 4-6 gigs per month, so please feel free to apply if you also have a day job !

It would be advantageous if applicants are within a 50 mile radius of Sc*nthorpe - other members are from Lincoln, Newark and Barnsley - but if you are really excited by the project and live further afield, then please apply - where there's a will there's a way ! Our current singer is based in London, and it has not been a problem for us to get together.

I have available for the band's use a large van, 4kW PA and 4 way monitor set up, loads of outboard, and stacks of lighting - if needed ! Most venues are adequately production equipped and that is the preferred option.

PS - I haven't specifically asked for video footage, as i appreciate not everyone is set up for that .... but if you DO have youtube footage or similar, please include a link in your application.

Open to applicants from around the UK, aged 20 - 60.

Seeking a great rock singer with a BIG range, and lots of durability, who can emulate the pipes of Gillan, Coverdale, Dio, Hughes, Bonnet and Lynn Turner - are you up to this task ???!!


Ideally you will have a decent Radio mic, and possibly in-ear monitors
