SEEKING

Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

Singer-songwriter-guitarist, experienced & professional needs bass-player and drummer (able to do backing vocals, ideally) to perform live in London & further afield. Bio, songs, videos, photos, reviews, etc.. on: https://www.robertcaruso.site/
Robert Caruso has played as opening act for Ray Charles, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Thunders, Nico, Alan Vega, John Hammond, Taj Mahal, Tim Rose and for many (US) bluesmen and Rock acts, and sang with Scotty Moore & DJ Fontana from Elvis' original band and The Yardbirds.
Bass-player and drummer wanted, into R&R, who like the songs and who are serious about doing this.
Later there will be also a 4th member on guitar (playing both lead & rhythm & do backing vocals too) so Robert can alternate between guitar & a Vox organ (like the one used by The Doors) on a few songs, but as a 3-piece the band can start working. Contacts to gig in London, Britain and abroad are waiting.
Original material, naturally (a few covers too). Some experience needed, but dedication, motivation, ambition, attitude, etc.. essential.

PLEASE, NO TIME WASTERS. We do this for a living, it's not a hobby. If your idea of Rock'n'Roll (rather than a popular art-form & show-biz in its best sense - i.e: providing first-class, professional entertainment for paying customers) is akin to a sport (technical prowess, speed, etc..), a hobby, an ego-trip, Prog-Rock, tribute/cover bands, copying/imitating someone else, etc.. you don't need to get in touch.

Albums The Best-kept Secret In Rock'n'Roll (2013), Love And Death (2014), Three Minutes To Midnight (2016) and singles are released as digital downloads on iTunes (& Spotify, GooglePlay, eMusic, Amazon Music, Rhapsody, etc..) and as CDs on Amazon. com. The complete albums are also in 'video format' on YouTube as 'playlists' on YouTube's Robert Caruso (Official) channel.
You can find and contact Robert on https://www.robertcaruso.site/ and on ReverbNation.

Influences

All classic Rock'n'Roll, from the Blues and Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Eddie Cochran, etc.. to Lou Reed/John Cale/Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Rolling Stones, Hendrix, The Doors, mid-60s Dylan, Lennon, Sly Stone, The Yardbirds, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bowie, Johnny Thunders/New York Dolls, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Joy Division, etc...
There's quite a bit of variety in the repertoire, without wanting to sound like anybody in particular. It can't be labeled 'Punk', 'Heavy Metal', 'Grunge', 'Indie', etc.. but only Rock'n'Roll in the widest sense of the term.
