VACANCY for RHTHMN GUITAR with strong BACKING VOCALS for new 70's function band
London Essex Herts
Tangerine Scene are a new semi pro function band comprising older ex-professional musicians from the 70s playing chart hits exactly like the original records from the psychedelic era – 1965 to 1975. We are fronted by an excellent young female singer.
See and hear us at:
We have recently lost our 2nd guitarist who was also an excellent vocalist and played a little lead guitar. Please see videos which includes set list etc., or You Tube “Tangerine Scene”
I put the band together from scratch last summer. We are now at the stage of doing warm up gigs iat Festivals before moving to highly paid function work.
We are now looking to sign with agencies for functions and corporate engagements.
Our objective is to play about two well paid corporate or wedding gigs a month.
You should be familiar with and want to play chart hits from between 65 and 75 and will need to learn the Rhythm Guitar parts EXACTLY LIKE THE RECORD.
The material includes ........ David Bowie, T Rex, Steely Dan, Mott the Hoople, The Small Faces, The Kinks, Stevie Wonder, Free, The Zombies, Santana, Badfinger, Cream, Spencer Davis, Bad Company, Crosby Stills Nash, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Cockney Rebel, Shocking Pink, etc. etc.
Many of the above have acoustic rhythm guitar, that’s you .... either playing electro acoustic or electric through an acoustic pedal. The more rocky numbers will require electric. Tight Rhythm with good backing vocals more important than any lead guitar skills. We already have an outstanding lead guitarist.
Our back line comprises - Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar (vacancy), Organ/Piano, Bass, Drums, .. three of us sing.
You do not have to be local. Our band comprises people who live across 3 counties. Rehearsals will be every 3 weeks, in Waltham Abbey, 2 mins from M25 junction 26, becoming less frequent once we start gigging. Gigs will be weekends and not necessarily local.
We are a down to earth friendly bunch, educated, old (aside from our lead singer), we laugh a lot, we are very good players (most of us classically trained and ex pro - see the biog page on the website).
We aim to make a little money playing the music of our teenage years and have fun doing it. We do our homework and turn up to rehearsals knowing the stuff.
