Out Of The Cool are looking for a second Male vocalist for gigs, functions, and other potential shows. Based in West Sussex we cover the whole south east area and beyond.
Made up of a core of 5 members OOTC are a pro band made up of seasoned session players and young new musicians. Featuring at least 2 and up to 4 brass depending on the size of venue and at least one female singer we are an established band with a strong work ethic. We enjoy what we are doing, we work hard and we do it for money. We have put a lot of focus on choosing songs that are rarely heard on the normal circuits but have a really big impact with the crowd. Songs such as Shining Star (earth, wind, and fire) and Mornin’ (Al Jarreau) and at every show the feedback has been strong and positive. We play to a click and have set arrangements with written dots for the brass giving the shows a real pro edge. Most shows are a big play/sing for all involved. There are very few songs in the set where the band coasts so it can be challenging however, the rewards are worth it.
We are looking for a male vocalist who is also able to front the band and connect with the audience. You will need to have a strong voice and a good vocal range. As the singers are always the focal point of any band an ability to guide the audience through the set and keep them on the dance floor is vital. This is a Soul band playing soul music so an understanding of the genre and influences from bands such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston etc is really essential. Our recent set included songs such as:
WILL IT GO ROUND IN CIRCLES – Billy Preston
GETAWAY – Earth, Wind, and Fire
GOT TO GET YOU INTO MY LIFE – Earth, Wind, and Fire
DIGGIN’ ON JAMES BROWN – Tower Of Power
What IS Hip – Tower Of Power
IN THE STONE – Earth, Wind, and Fire
SUPERSTITION – Stevie wonder
LOVELY DAY – Bill Withers
The Pad is currently expanding to include more songs from these and other artists (average white band, Michael Jackson, Kool and the gang).
If you think you have what it takes get in touch. We have gigs lined up and are working with a number of agencies to secure work this year and throughout 2013.
