Seeking Bassist w/ vocals for Classic Rock Band
The Fire at Will band is a new up and coming local classic rock band with some of the best talent in the Hudson Valley area. We are currently seeking a bass player so we can begin booking our 2018 schedule in the Rockland/Bergen/Orange County areas. We have already played at established venues such as Bailey's Smokehouse and Parkside Tavern. We are looking to play once, maybe twice a month depending on how the scheduling falls. We're a fun group of guys aged 40 through 55 who have careers, families and other commitments so we just want to have fun and make music.
So if you are looking for a project that leaves time for other things, this is it.
Besides the typical Classic Rock stuff, we like to play tunes people know and love, yet cover bands dare not play. An example of some songs we play are: Rosanna – Toto; Van Halen – Right Now and Drop Dead Legs; J.Giels – Centerfold; Foreigner – Double Vision
We are always looking to add tunes and expand our set list.
Feel free to contact me for a full set list.
Must be proficient on your instrument. For example, during your audition you will be asked to play the opening bass riff for Aerosmtih’s Sweet Emotion as it is on the record (as well as the entire song). Very few bassists can pull this riff off properly and instead just ‘wing it’.
Must have Background vocal ability, at least. Beyond that is gravy and we welcome other members who want to sing a lead or two.
Must have reliable transportation and ability to transport your gear.
Must be able to practice at least on Thursday nights. We will sometimes practice in Nyack or in New Windsor NY
Be personable and want to have fun and be willing to be part of a team.
Feel free to reach out if you'd like to set up an audition!
Location: Rockland County, NY
