The Detectives


Keyboard, Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist - Bass.


The Detectives, an established, pub/small venue gigging quirky covers band based in Lancaster, are looking to recruit a versatile replacement band member who can play bass, ideally play guitar on some tracks as well, and perhaps sing a lead vocal line on some songs under some one else's harmony vocals. Someone who could play bass on some tracks and keyboard on others would be another usweful alternative. We need someone who is able to gig approx once a week. We have been gigging in Lancaster or 18 months and have plenty of contacts for gigs. We get paid, but play mainly cause we enjoy it, so no big financial rewards available - we'd rather have more gigs to play than just a few well paid ones. See our myspace site for our current extensive songs list. We have had to cancel gigs that were lined up until Sept. But by Sept we hope to be ready again to play a decent setlist with the new line up. If you are living within striking distance of Lancaster and fancy playing in a good time covers band - we play a variety of stuff - pop, rock, jazz, country, soul, folk - then track us down - Rob Thompson
