Submitted by cmmaudain on Sun, 02/11/2018 - 5:48pm

A new cover band is forming to spread messages of love, unity, acceptance, empathy, and understanding. We currently consist of a vocalist and keys/vocalist. The band will cover artists from a wide range of genres. We are currently looking for collaborators who are interested in creating our own sound-- one that has a strong soul bent with tight harmonies and creative instrumentation. We are looking for strong musicians to play multiple styles-- bonus points if you play multiple instruments, or sing and play any instrument. A high level of musicianship is required including: (1) ability to learn songs by ear; (2) transpose and play in all keys; (3) perform live at a professional level. 

The band will consist of:

  • 4-5 lead/backup singers (2 booked) - strong pop vocals, ability to learn and create original harmonies, ability to switch between lead and backup with ease
  • Piano/ Keys (booked)
  • Electric Guitar 
  • Bass 
  • Drums
  • Open to other instrumentation (trumpet, trombone, sax, synth)


Examples of artists we'd cover:
Bill Withers, Fleetwood Mac, Janet Jackson, Robyn, The Fugees/Lauryn Hill, The Gap Band, Hall & Oates, Marvin Gaye, The Pointer Sisters, Earth, Wind, & Fire, George Michael, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke, Rihanna, Blackstreet, Mary J Blige, James Taylor, The Carpenters, The Beatles, and more.

More information:
-Rehearsals weekly, likely on Saturday or Sunday
