Hi there female singers looking to sing at a good level and in good company, we are a 6 piece band: acoustic g, electric g, bass, percussions, drums and saxophone.
Our Spanish female singer has just left the band to pursue a professional music career (argh this is the second times that happens to us, last year it happened with the drummer who also went professional!), so we are now looking for a singer to rehearse in the evening during the week, once a week, normally Wednesday or Thursday starting around 8pm and do some pub gigs once every 2-3 months as an occasion to meet and entertain our friends, so just for fun, no stress, this is a hobby and we want it to remain as such. Some of us have been playing instruments for 20+ years and we have a very solid drums/bass/ritmic guitar core which allows to quickly add and perform any new piece to good standards. We are friends before the music and all of us work outside music. We are in our 40s, most of us Italian, and we have a place where we can rehearse in Kensington - W8. We play different music genres but with a prevalence of Blues and Rock! But we don't dislike some jazz and pop pieces here and there. We try hard to make all band members happy when it comes down to selecting new songs to play, of course starting from the singer!
We do not care about paid gigs, so if you have this in mind please look somewhere else. It may happen but this is not the purpose of the band, which is to have fun playing some of the most beautiful pieces in the music history, in good company.
Ideally you would be happy to sing different music genres, would have a nice voice and some previous experience playing in a band, but very importantly you will be a nice person to deal with and you will remain cool when one of the guitarists also wants to sing a song and will be happy to sing backing vocals when that happens!
As an example we cover pieces from CCR, Bruce Springsteen (and no we do not expect you would be happy and good covering these 2!), Eagles, Pink Floyd, SRV, Cranberries, 4 non blondes, AcDc (nothing harder than this - so no heavy metal! but no hip hop either!) but we also cover pieces from Ray Charles, Sade, Fairground attraction, Morcheeba, Adele and many more!
Pls be in touch if you are interested and we can exchange some recordings, and sorry for the long post but better to be clear, Ciao!
