|We are an actively gigging 3 piece rock cover band (guitar, bass, drums) performing semi-regularly in and around Melbourne, particularly at venues along the peninsula and south eastern suburbs where we have continued to developed a local following. We have a full setlist of songs totalling in excess of 3 hours that is ready to go and a number of gigs lined up for 2020.
Our set list consists of covers of classic pub rock anthems from the 70s through to today by artists such as The Angles, AC/DC, Screaming Jets, Black Sabbath, Grinspoon, Foo Fighters, Kiss, etc. We have an 80s Aussie pub rock style and sound with a raw, grungy edge leaning towards hard rock that is well suited to the songs and genre we play.
While we are professional in our approach and treat rehearsals seriously, our main aim is to have fun and enjoy what we love doing, playing music!
We rehearse weekly at Deluxe Studios in Moorabbin (Wednesday evenings) and we have a full setlist consisting of more than 40 completed songs ready to perform. We range from 30-50 years of age but we are open to people of all ages who have an interest and love of the genre and songs we play.
As our new singer, you would ideally be able to offer the following:
- Have the necessary charisma and stage presence to be an energetic front person
- be competent and have the vocal ability, confidence and desire to perform on stage
- have experience in a gigging band and, preferably, as a lead vocalist
- Commit to rehearsing once a week at Deluxe Studios Moorabbin
- be reliable and come to rehearsal knowing your parts!
- Have your own transportation
- be over 18 (to play pubs and over 18 venues)
- have good communication skills
- be mature - not necessarily in years, but in personal and musical presentation
- be prepared to work towards gigging semi-regularly
- Guitar or keyboard ability an advantage but not necessary
- Be easy to get along with (we're all laid back) and prepared to have fun
