Rattled are seeking a reliable and dedicated drummer who would be interested in joining for the long term a working 60 / 70 covers band.
We are a three piece band and play without a bass player.
Vic and I are both in our mid sixties and our gigs are all about having social nights out with our lovely wives playing live the music we love from the sixties and seventies with some 50s rock and roll thrown into the mix and making some half decent money along the way.
We pitch ourselves at social clubs and good pubs and nowadays can afford to be a bit picky about where we play. We have good contacts with local venues and some further afield.
There are several video clips on youtube "Rattled recorded live at the Ark Tavern" courtesy of Mark and Veida to give an idea of what we are about.
We only this year decided to register the band as a partnership for tax purposes as we were starting to get plenty of bookings so anyone wanting to join us would have to be on board with that.
For the last couple of years we have been playing paid gigs 6 to 8 times a month and have almost 60 confirmed bookings up to and including New Years Eve 2018 with more in the pipeline to follow.
I have been able to cover all but one of our remaining bookings this year with stand in players while we look for a permanent drummer so there would be no immediate pressure to start and a decent settling in period with midweek rehearsal if necessary.
We have a comprehensive set of pop / soft rock and the heaviest we get is The Stones - we like to be a little different and have many medleys plus a few songs that people won't have heard in years.
We are looking for someone reliable and committed long term who is easy going and definitely no ego.
Vic is an excellent front man and I like to think that I keep everything ship shape and organised behind the scenes. We have a good reputation and gigs booked and have a great repertoire.
Everything is in place to carry the band forward and the right person can just walk into a working / gigging band.
I will pass details of anyone interested to Vic to follow up.
Thanks for reading . steve.
