It's 2023 and gigs are coming back! If you are a bassist with some serious chops, cool with weird time signatures, changing tempos mid-song and lots of instrumental passages, then we should talk! Browse around this site to get an idea of what the band is all about, then reach out to me here. Age isn't important, as long as you are old enough to get into the venues legally & young enough to put on a good show!
It should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway: drug &/or alcohol issues are a deal breaker. No drama, bla bla bla. You've heard it all before. We're looking for a great player with an all pro attitude, and we will bring the same.
Let's talk goals - if it were a perfect world and everything came together absolutely right, I'd like to play around 75 to 100-ish shows per year, with each member putting about $500 to $1,000 per show in their pocket. BUT- it's not a perfect world and we will need to work pretty hard to hit that goal.
As far as the shows themselves go, we're looking to book lots of opening slots, performing anywhere from 20 minutes to 60 minutes of the original music you can hear throughout this site. Should we really hit it out of the park & reach the ability to headline our own shows we would be doing around a 90 minute set. At every gig there will be a merch booth set up and everyone in the band will earn a cut of the merch sales. Initially the majority of the bookings will be near our home base (Rockford, IL), but if the pay is right we will need to travel, perhaps even out of the country. (Is your passport up to date?)
There is much more to think about & discuss, but let's save that for an actual conversation. If this intrigues you at all, then contact me here and we can exchange phone numbers and talk. Thanks for giving it some thought!
