The Magnificent Murder Show




Serious, enthusiastic, committed and professionally-minded musician sought for ‘THE MAGNIFICENT MURDER SHOW’, a new Glasgow-based band ready to put in the required level of work and dedication for not only the usual touring etc, but also being at the top of our game, and demonstrating original thinking enough to be a properly BIG act.

We will be booking gigs as soon as we've got the right guy.

Currently looking for drummer, to complete a 5-piece line-up alongside guitarist, bassist, vocalist and myself on guitar. All of us so far have a good deal of experience in the field, and have the time and high commitment levels to put towards achieving our goal.

We’ve got a general sound in mind already, (loosely hard rock/metal meets sinister-sounding cabaret, country and showtunes) and a set’s worth of songs already written, some of which are recorded and available to listen to at:


We're going for a really wild, energetic live show, so willingness to dress up and jump around a lot is important.

Ideal candidates MUST:
-Be aged 18-30
-Have a high level of ability on chosen instrument, and very good level of general musical knowledge. (Understanding of weird time signatures will be helpful)
-Have professional attitude, and pro gear.
-Be available for regular practice and gigging schedules.
-Be willing to go all out on stage presence and helping to create an over the top, theatrical image.
-Be really keen on developing the sound we’ve got on the go, and have a similar passion for lots of different musical styles.

Ability to drive would also be great, but not entirely necessary.

If you think you could be a valuable part of this band, and are looking for something serious and rewarding, then please send me a reply to stating:
Name, age, how long you’ve been playing for, general level of experience playing in bands, and some key influences. Also any links to audio or video examples of your playing would be very useful. Any questions you may have are also more than welcome.
