Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.


Looking for other musicians as the band is changing direction. Need to be comfortable switching to rhythm acoustic and electric guitar for some of the set, or vice versa. This is for the 4-piece pop/rock/alt band Saving Stanley, based in Cheltenham, which is a consolidation of much of the previous functions / dep work I've been doing for the functions band Stanley Park. Before this, I toured with and still occasionally dep for dIRE sTREETS; the UK's leading tribute to the music of Dire Straits. I used to play solo at various clubs and bars in the Cheltenham / South West / Midlands, so these are the target areas for gigs.

Saving Stanley are off to a good start for 2019, with a strong setlist and some gigs under the belt. Looking to keep it reasonably light in terms of bookings per year as I have a full-time career in the music industry working for Solid State Logic. We're more about having fun performing to a high standard than trying to become career musicians - if this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, let me know.
