BASS PLAYERS (YES, YOU!) - Alternative Rock Band Seeking Bass Player (Blacksburg, VA)
Alternative rock group in Blacksburg (VA) is seeking a skilled bass player to join our lineup. We have the rhythm guitar, the lead guitar, the drums, and the vocals! All that's missing is that sexy low end that only a bass player can bring.
We play a variety of originals and covers, and are currently practicing once a week to begin performing live in late April (venues in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Radford).
We are all in our mid 20s, gainfully employed (or grad students at VA Tech), and are all laid back (no egos!). We practice once a week for about 2 hours, usually reviewing old material and going over at least one new song, with a jam session or two thrown in to keep things fresh. We try to pick covers that the whole band enjoys, so bring your suggestions to practice!
IF THIS SOUNDS FUN, READ ON.
Heres what we need:
- A bass player (thats you!) with considerable talent on his instrument. We are not expecting Flea or Victor Wooten, but being able to jump in and pick up songs quickly is a plus! Obviously you should have your own gear (your amp should be loud enough to be heard over a drum set, though we have a PA system that we can use in the short term).
- We are looking for someone in their 20s, but will consider anyone if the talent is there.
- Must have transportation
- Looking for people who act professional (show up on time, dont come to practice/gigs drunk...etc)
- Looking for people who come to practice/gigs ready to rock and have a good time.
If you are interested, respond to this ad. Include your name, age, years of experience on the bass, work status (or student status), and a fun factoid about yourself. If you have any samples of you playing, please include them!
Thanks in advance for your interest. One of us will get back to you within 24hrs of getting your e-mail.
