ABOUT

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 http://tangerinescene.co.uk/index.html


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”

BUSINESSES PLAN:-
I put the band together from scratch last summer and we are about to start warm up gigs in pubs before signing to an Agent to get more highly paid function work.

However more prestigious gigs are already coming in. We’ve just been booked to appear on the last day of a three day festival in London this summer.


Once we have made a pro film and jumped into the corporate market, we aim to do two well paid function gigs a month.


THE MUSIC:-
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. If you can play some lead guitar that would great, but not essential. Tight Rhythm with good BVs more important. We have an outstanding lead guitarist.

Our back line comprises - Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar (vacancy), Organ/Piano, Bass, Drums, .. three of us sing; ..... YOU may take lead vocal on one or two songs if up for it.


LOCATION:-
You do not have to be local. Our band comprises people who live across 3 counties. Rehearsals will be every 2 to 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.


CULTURE:-
We are a down to earth friendly bunch, educated, we laugh a lot, we are old (apart from our girl singer up front) we are very good players (most classically trained and ex pro) and 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.
