We are two experienced local guitarists and a drummer (late 40's) looking to form a new Bar Band. Musically, we're thinking enough rock and hard rock to keep us personally motivated, and enough dance/party songs to keep the dance floor hoppin' all night. We're mostly hard rock and metal fans ourselves, so most songs will be played with some crunch!
How will we differentiate ourselves from every other Bar Band out there, you ask? By having an awesome frontman!
We're looking for a male or female singer/frontman with an emphasis on frontman. People go out to see Bar Bands to be ENTERTAINED, so having a great frontman is critical. We want a frontman who is entertaining, charismatic and dynamic; who is at home in front of a crowd; who knows how to take control and work a room. Of course, competent vocal ability is also required, but you don't have to be a virtuoso. We will need to see some video of you on stage doin' your thing. We don't want to spend a couple months working with you, only to find out you're a "shoe-gazer" onstage. We also expect all band members to "look like you're in a band" when you step on stage. You decide specifically what that means and what works for you, but everyday street clothes won't cut it.
Offstage, we expect you to be stable, reliable, honest, and a team player. We have all been around the block a few times, so we will be patient in finding the right people to round out our band. We aren't going to hire the first person who comes along who can play or sing. We plan on taking the time to get to know you before offering the job.
We have a practice place in Quarryville (Southern Lancaster County), and we will practice on a weeknight (to be determined). We have booking contacts at several area venues in York and Lancaster Counties, hoping to expand into northern MD as well. We're looking to play out around twice a month.
NO DRUGS, NO DRUNKS, NO EGOS.
If you think you've got what it takes, or just have questions, drop us a line. We always enjoy talking with other musicians, so we'll be happy to talk with you even if it turns out we're not a good fit for each other.
