Driven Serious




Driven Serious are looking for a new drummer to gradually join the band over a 3 month period.
Based Newcastle and Durham.
Original folk rock and sometimes punk folk.
Sometimes our own reworked covers.
Fiddle, guitar, keys, bass, cello, 2 x vocals, drums.
We practice at least 3 times a month.
Our gigs average 3 a month.
Lots of festivals this year.
Pay to band for gig up to £450.
Working on material for our second album. Recording this October.
Lots of material on YouTube and Spotify.

Here is a description of us from the Crack:

"I suppose you could file Driven Serious under the banner of folk-rock; but they are so much than that. They have a vibrancy that you can virtually see thrumming off them when they play, passionate and with the handbrake well and truly off, and with a vibe that has had people likening them to The Levellers to The Pogues to The Smiths to The Wonderstuff..."

We practice as often as possible on Thursday evenings, with at least two gigs a month on weekends, with summer being busier at festivals.

You must be dedicated and willing to be an enthusiastic passionate band member.

Having a decent drum kit and your own transport is essential.
