Lead guitarist needed for our new wedding/function band based around the Cleveland/Durham area as unfortunately our guitarist had to leave for personal/work commitments.
We were in the final rehearsal stage of the project and are desperate to find a new guitarist to get back on track. That said any prospective members are still welcome to add their input into the setlist.
The band is called "Mixology" and as the name suggests our U.S.P. is that we mix a lot of songs up playing mash-ups of well known songs and artists which adds that little bit extra into the set.
We are keeping the setlist quite fresh and up to date with covers from the likes of Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, Ed Sheeran, John Newman, Walk the Moon, Adele, as well as a few surprises in our mash-ups from the likes of the Bee Gees to AC/DC. Some of the more well known covers from kings of Leon, Amy Winehouse, and The killers are also in the set as crowd pullers. The entire set list is pulled together to ensure any dancefloor is filled from start to finish.
We are not looking at the band as a full time project as we all have other jobs and commitments. We will be looking at performing a couple of times a month and rehearse weekly predominantly on a Monday evening and have our own rehearsal space.
The band consists of a female lead vocalist (Heather) who had a great vocal range and great tone to her voice. Heather has worked with numerous bands of different genres and styles and can adapt her voice to suit any style.
Jamie on keyboards is an amazing musician who adds so much versatility to the band allowing us to perform a huge range of genres of music. He has worked and toured with both original and cover bands and is a multi instrumentalist who's abilities enhance any performance.
Martin on bass is really tight with the rhythm section and gives us a really solid sound. Predominantly from a rock background he is loving the diversity of the set and is now proud to admit he's a huge Taylor Swift fan.
Phil the drummer plays a Roland TD50 electronic kit which gives the band a huge range of sounds, samples and sequences. His capabilities to trigger not just drum sounds but multi instruments, samples, vocals, and even lighting effects give the band a unique edge second to none.
We're looking for a dynamic energetic guitarist to help front the band having lost our original guitarist. You will have the opportunity to have an input on song choices, structures and arrangements as we are still in the rehearsal stages of our set.
We have a full PA and lighting rig and recording facilities.We also have some great contacts within the wedding planning industry who are keen to use their position to help promote the band.
If this is something you think you'll be interested in feel free to get in touch.
