Next week we’re auditioning a number of keyboard players and guitar players (to trade solos, fills and rhythm guitar parts with Nikki.) Here’s the ad we’ve posted on Craig’s List – if you know anyone in Los Angeles who might be a good fit, send us a message/comment…
Keyboardist or Guitarist into Soul-influenced Rock Wanted
Soul/funk-influenced rock band in West LA with female singer/lead guitarist, male bass player and drummer are seeking keyboardist or an additional guitar player. Male or female.
Original music is the focus. Debut EP released in 2012; new bass player on board; weekly rehearsing (have own lockout) and regular gigging from March and forward, writing/rehearsing new songs for second EP.
60’s and 70’s soul, funk, rock and contemporary artists in the same style – Aretha Franklin, Betty Davis, Amy Winehouse, Alabama Shakes, The Meters, Sly Stone, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Galactic, Al Green, Ann Peebles, Mavis Staples, Funkadelic, some Black Keys, Jack White/Racounteurs. Some roots reggae, gospel, blues, afrobeat, jazz, jam bands, experimental stuff.
We are very song-focused at this time. Although we’re not a jam band, we do like to open to open up the songs live.
Must have groove, be able to play for the song, be versatile, have a great ear, a genuine love for soul/funk/r&b/reggae (and know how to play these styles.) Basic backup singing ability a MAJOR plus; songwriting ability also a plus. Be willing and available to play a lot of gigs (including longer shows with originals and covers.) Working gear and transportation is a must.
NO HIRED GUNS – we’re seeking a permanent, creatively contributing band member. Email us links to your websites or YouTube videos so that we can hear your playing.
