A new band to play 50s/60s pop and rock. Maybe
you have always wanted this opportunity but have never had the chance
you were in a band once and would love to be again
you have always kept up your instrument/singing to a good standard
you like 50s/60s pop/rock/jive/soul and swing
Then this might be for you. A selection of music and videos can be found on the website to whet your appetite.
I am in a position where I have the time to put a band together and am looking for:
a lead guitarist who knows, or can learn, the solos of the 50s/60s
a bass guitarist
a keyboard player
vocalists - male and/or female - though you may be an instrumentalist as well.
The band would be based in the Oldham/Saddleworth area for practice purposes so you would need your own transport. You would also need your own instrument and amplification although I have a PA System, a Mackie 16 input mixer and a few mikes. You would also need to be able to rehearse once a week, learn your parts and be staying in the area for the next couple of years.
One of my reasons for doing this is to have fun and enjoy making music with other people. No point practising though without performing so the intention would be to be a gigging band.
I am a rhythm guitarist and vocalist although, over the years, I have been involved in many different musical activities including choral singing, folk and acappella groups, all at semi-professional standards.
I would want to keep the costs of running the group low though there would possibly be costs for a rehearsal room but hopefully any expenses would be covered, in time by income from gigs.
