We’re committed to playing excellent music . . . but the band is for fun. We did the budding professional rock star thing in the late 70s; and we’ve all been in various successful semi-pro bands over the years ever since.
Three of us recently came out of a high-end function band (see the 2nd video) . . . but this band is for fun, not money.
Now . . .
* We are old
* We’re still VERY good players
* We have had middle-class day jobs for decades
* We perform for the love of it
This band is about gigging once or twice a month for a few hundred pounds. We are not chasing any particular indicators of success.
We prefer a pricing structure that allows us to pick and choose the pubs and parties we play, build a following and just enjoy the camaraderie of being in a bloody good band playing the rock soundtrack of our youth. It seems to be working - check the website, the gig-list is building nicely. The band is for fun but that said, we are not without sales and marketing skills.
We are educated, kind-hearted and easy going sort of folk, with a liberal world view. Two of us are retired eduction professionals, one a senior corporate manager, one owns a real estate firm.
As for you . . .
If you are all ego, if you’re a bread-head or if want to be a big star in a small pond, this isn’t for you.
If you have a good rock voice, if you can improvise, if you like 70s rock and want to have some fun lighting up audiences in pubs and parties with a bunch of old gits, who laugh a lot and don’t take themselves too seriously – then you’ve come to the right place.
We have two OUTSTANDING lead guitarists, one of whom is also a good lead singer with a great voice, so you’ll have good BV’s behind you.
We gig around London and the Home Counties, only at weekends and we don’t travel too far. We rehearse at AirPlay Studios in south west London TW15 about every three weeks on Sunday mornings
We have one rule - if anybody doesn’t want to do anything then without further debate we don’t do it. Other than that we decide everything together, one for all, etc.
People applying who have names like Paul Rogers and Robert Plant will be given preference - but don’t be shy, we’re a very friendly bunch.
