Rock Drummer wanted for covers project
We are a female fronted rock band doing rock covers of pop songs (no name as of yet). None of us are into pop music but twisting these into rock and heavy rock is quite a lot of fun and we think the punters will enjoy it. We rehearse in Earlsfield, South West London.
It's a big full rock sound so we need a drummer who can slot into this.
We usually use existing YouTube covers as a start point / guide. Here's a sample of the kind of covers we seek to emulate…
Experience is essential although these aren't technically difficult to play (ignore the drum overdubs / double kicks)
You have dynamics, not just loud and louder!
You can play to a click. This tightens everything up and is needed for timing dependent guitar FXs.
You can learn quickly. We've had too many delays. We just want to get out there ASAP now. Join us for the ride.
We know everyone has work and this is ultimately a fun project - we aren't looking to conquer the world - but we do want it to be to a good standard. That means:
Everyone does the homework (ie learns the songs from the YouTube links)
Commits to rehearsing once a week for 3 hours on the weekend (usually Sunday evening - could adjust to an afternoon if required). To get you up to scratch quickly, we might do twice a week but normally we'd do once a week. We all have lives beyond band.
Make themselves available for gigs on a fri or sat night (max of two gigs a month).
Come for a beer and pizza at the pub afterward because we're such amazingly cool people ; ) (optional).
Get an agent
Gig twice a month
Get a residency somewhere
Record some tracks to build a YouTube / social media presence.
HOW TO APPLY
We want to start auditions ASAP so we can conceivably audition you as early as Sunday 6th October. We rehearse at Pirate Studios in Earlsfield. PM me and I'll give you a track list to choose from and we'll book you in.
