Musicians needed...

Hotsy Totsy are a retro group in the style of The Andrews Sisters, we have recently branched out and are doing more soul and funk leading into 70s/80s. We have previously gigged with backing tracks but now are trying to get a real band sound, we have a guitarist and a drummer, but need a pianist, bassist and at least one brass player. If you think you like the sound of us, please check out our non-exhaustive song list www.hotsytotsy.webs.com and if you would like to join us please get in touch. We need to be gig ready by the end of the summer/beginning of September so please bear this in mind. All of our numbers are in the original key which should make it that bit easier to learn outside of practise.

Acoustic Guitarist Wanted

Hi,
I'm a 27 year old female vocalist and am seeking an acoustic guitarist to do a duo act with. I am aiming to write originals and do gigs performing both originals and some covers. I graduated from Leeds College of Music last year and really want to get back writing and performing as since moving back to Kent, I haven't found the right person to work with. I'm primarily a pop/rock vocalist but obviously want to write songs suitable for acoustic guitar and voice. Age does't matter, I just need someone who's going to be committed and willing to co-write.

We have used cajon drums previously and this has been effective, especially at smaller gigs, but he has moved away, hence this ad.

Celtic, Skiffle, instrumentalists

I am a solo performer but, frequently get asked to supply a band to play the above style of uptempo fun music for festivals, functions etc, this is happening more often and, I need to assemble musicians who can play to a decent standard,not looking for virtuosos just the abillity to play 3 or 4 chord crowdpleasers, need to be willing and able to learn songs and join in the chorus.

I often work with some of the UKs top agencies so reliability is vital, especially when working corporate functions where decent money can be earned, think the Dubliners, the Pogues and Lonnie Donegan type entertainment, all and any instruments considered, remember; as long as it is entertaining there are no boundaries.

Drummer needed for country originals band!

Hello, we’re a newly formed country music band looking for a talented drummer, who is versatile and progressive in style. You will need to be a great time keeper and hold a solid beat, with an ear for ‘tasteful’ rhythms which suit this kind of music. You will also need to be committed to attend rehearsals on a weekly basis, which take place in Faversham, Kent.

The band so far consists of: female singer/songwriter & rhythm guitarist – age 27, male lead guitarist – age 27, male bass player – age 27. We have gelled really well, and all equally enthusiastic about being in the band for the long haul! We think this is a brilliant opportunity to be part of something from the beginning, and to be creative with original songs. So far the set list includes a mixture of country covers and original songs. Please only respond if you genuinely love country! So far, we have worked on a few songs, including American Honey (Lady Antebellum), Famous in a Small Town (Miranda Lambert), Swingin (LeAnn Rimes version) and Long Time Gone (Dixie Chicks) (as well as a few originals). Our aim is to be gigging by the end of the year, and record an EP early next year of original tracks. If you are interested, please contact Natalie via pipersdaughterband@gmail.com

DRUMMER and BASS Player required for gigging 60’s & 70’s BLUES/ROCK Band!

Recently back in the UK from Australia, I am looking for an experienced Drummer and Bass player to complete a high quality 60’s and 70’s Blues/Rock Trio for gigging across Kent and Sussex. With all respect, I am ideally looking for musicians around my age 25-35, however this is not a final factor!
Side project musicians are most welcome to enquire, I am also front man/guitarist for an established blues band in Kent looking for another ‘rockier’ project and understand the logistics of balancing two bands, work and family life.
Benefits of joining this side project are that I have current venues/contacts that can be easily approached, portable professional studio equipment (experience working in Rec studios)  and can also easily find ‘sit in replacements’ if you are occasionally not able to make a gig due to band/work commitments.
I have all professional gear, Mackie PA, original 70’s Marshalls (I am a tone nut!), basically no toys, looking for similar real musicians to rock with!
You must have transport, good gear, Bass will need a minimum of 4x10 or 15’s as I generally use a head and 4x12 with 2x12  combo stacked, Drums no subs for kick usually needed as we’re not playing the O2 unfortunately!

The set list will be based around(not limited to) the following- Early ACDC (Bon Scott era), Free, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Cream, Frank Zappa, Hendrix (Band of Gypsies and Experience), Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Ram Jam, The Angels, John Mayalls Bluesbreakers and more.

I will promote band, book gigs, produce demos and promotional material.
Emos, egos, druggies and weirdo’s need not enquire please.

If you are interested, please email at goguyra@hotmail.com me for more information.
Cheers,
Lefty

John Paul Jones Wanted!

Hi,
I know this is a tall order but I want to do it properly! I am a drummer who has recently left one of the UK's best and most successful Led Zeppelin tribute bands and I want to start another one!

I am not interested in a lookalike band but I do want to sound reasonably close, despite the fact that I have a female lead singer lined up for the role of Robert Plant. This will be a side project but I would like to get it out there and play as much as we can in the East Sussex area. I want this to be a lot of fun, but also to be a labour of love.

I have a fantastic lead guitarist and singer lined up , with myself on drums, and we would like a bass player who can also play keys and mandolin in order to do it properly.
Are you out there?

Bass player wanted

We are a collective of like/open minded, easy going, mature individuals ( guitar, guitar, drums and keys) that play twice a week in our own studio in Ramsgate. We play all our own music which is influenced by our eclectic tastes (zappa, mahivishnu, king crimson, genesis, yes, ozric tentacles, jeff beck, stone roses, etc, etc). I suppose it could loosely be described as Jazz/space/funk rock with a progressive edge. If you fancy a jam and a chance to let rip and improvise, then why not reply and we can take it from there?

Rock/ Metal based guitarist/bassist WANTED

Who we are:
Band: Attack The Skyline
Style: Rock and Metal
Currently  a 4 piece band
45 min set of our own material (although most gigs we find tend to be using our 30min set)
We're aiming to record in the next couple of months
And have more gigs being Lined up
(We do currently have 1 guitarist and a bassist, so if you are a bassist, our current bassist will move up to a second guitarist, if you are a guitarist however then you will take that place and our bassist will stay a bassist)

What we are looking for:
-A Guitarist/Bassist capable of learning our current songs (don't worry, we don't expect you to learn them in one practice session, but if you are a fast learner then you'll have no problem with most our songs)
-If you are capable of also doing backing vocals this will be VERY MUCH in your favour, especially if you can scream! :)
-we practice on Monday evenings to fit in with our work schedules, so this would need to be an evening each week that you keep available unless you have a good reason of course
We practice in crowborough, so if you don't live near by then own transport would be helpful to get there, although 3 members travel from tonbridge and tunbridge wells, so lifts may be able to be arranged for you.
-you will of course be expected to have your own guitar/bass (but we assume that's a given, however for bassists we do have a spear bass available if required, although an amp will most likely still be needed)
-ideally someone between the ages of 18 and 23 is preffered, but give or take a year still get in touch :)
-Now that all the strict stuff is out the way...
We are looking for someone who generally enjoys music and being a part of writing music, performing live, meeting new people, and having a great time in a band with an aim of progression, taking it seriously, but still able to have fun and mess around and have a laugh with the rest of us :)

If you have any questions or even just fancy coming along for a trial to see if this is right for you, then feel free to get in touch with us!

 Originally starting as a side project to Doom band Pagan Altar and Classic metal band Sacrilege, now left both bands and given up European tours to make this happen so we are looking for a committed member only.

We have an EP and a full length album released in September with already lots of airplay in USA and Europe. We have been approached by record companies in Europe with advice on going live rather than a project, so there's some good opportunities about if we all work together. We are all relaxed and don't take things too seriously but still remain professional. Rehearsals will be every fortnight to start with around north kent or essex.
Must have own equipment, own transport and a passport (due to past gig offers being overseas)

Singer(s)for Nothern Soul Covers Band Bromley

Singer or Singers wanted for Northern Soul covers band, playing all the classics.
Gender/Race/Creed/Religion/Age/Experience not important, a love for 60s/70s soul music is.

We are happy to audition anyone at a recording studio in Bromley.
This band is a hobby to us, it will lead to some gigs later in the year, but it should be fun first.
It will not be a money making exercise, we just want to play some great soul songs and make some people dance.
We do this with a guitar based band, and our style adds an edge to the music, we sound nearer to early Small Faces than the MGs (unfortunately)
It would be great if you could add some percussion.
We definitely need more than one singer, so if you only want to do backing vocals that is fine.

Rock, Blue/Rock, Classic band needs drummer.

Hi All,
We're a (nearly) functioning rock, blues/rock band - we've had one gig, but our drummer wants to concentrate on soul/funk music and is moving on.
Mainly "classics" - some of the songs we play include: Still got the blues, Get it on, Knocking on heaven's door, Cheap Sunglasses, Wishing Well, Walking etc...
You can hear what we sound like here: http://www.poormonkeys.co.uk/audio.php
We're a little rough around the edges, which you might expect from a band formed just over a month ago.
We're from all over Kent and we usually practice somewhere in the middle - currently in Stelling Minnis.
Our ages are 41 through to mid 60's (I guess - I'm bound to have upset someone in the band saying that!). We have no aspirations of playing at Wembley...simply a pub band out to entertain and have some fun.

We practice at least once a week, usually twice, although once we get going I imagine this will be once a week. We're looking to gig 3-4 times per month.
Obviously, own transport and gear is a given.

If you think you fit the bill, please text or call me (Dave) on 07565659024.
Kent - Canterbury, Ashford, Dymchurch....

Guitarist Needed for Singer

I am a singer based in Kent with over 5 years worth of gig experience.
I am looking for a very good guitarist who loves performing and is motivated with a fun loving, confident personality who will want to gig as often as possible, to make some good money and not have to worry about commitment. A proactive attitude is a must.

My aim is to sell a Duo/Trio/band using myself as the brand. Therefore I will be setting up websites and managing gigs and providing PA equipment. The musicians I use will only need to advise me of their rate for a performance and their availability for gigs. We will initially develop a good set list as an acoustic duo and polish its performance at bar/restaurants, wedding breakfasts, etc.
I have contacts with bars and restaurants around Kent as well as numerous Wedding Venues and wedding planners in order to obtain gigs as soon as we are ready.
You will need to have your own transport to get to gigs and also have good reliable equipment.
My personal style and genre is Soulful, jazzy and funky but this does not limit the songs we can cover, as I’d like to cover any good song in our own soulful/jazzy/funky way.
Auditions will be held in the form of a good jam to see how we get on and go from there. Either at my house/your house or somewhere in between.

I live near Maidstone Kent so the closer the applicant the better but all welcome.
Payment details: Per gig

Re-forming band looking for a good standard keyboard player

With gigs lined up from May onwards, we are three experienced musicians (vocalist, drummer and bass guitarist) who have just left a gigging band after 5 1/2 years. We are looking to re-form to do a little function stuff (not too much) and mainly good lively pubs. An example of the sort of hugely varied material we do includes: hungry like the wolf, don't you forget about me, human, uprising, use somebody, everybody's changing, every breath you take, China girl, don't stop believing and disco 2000 to name but a few.

Basically, we really enjoy performing and playing the stuff people want to dance and sing along to. We are't doing this for the money (although obviously paid gigs will be the main staple with the occasional charity and festival gigs thrown in) but we are certainly looking to cover rehearsal rooms, travel, a few beers on the gig nights and a taxi home. It's got to be fun for everyone involved or it ain't worth doing - so it's important the whole band get a say in what we do and aren't out of pocket for the privilege.

We are looking to gig a couple of times a month with rehearsals every fortnight or as needed (will be a little more to get sets together initially I suspect!). We already have 3 or 4 potential gigs lined up from May time onwards and lots of contacts mean we can easily fill the calendar with gigs once we are up to speed
We now have a female vocalist onboard to expand our repertoire, we just need a keyboard player to complete the line up (we are close to securing a good guitarist) and then we want to motor on and get two 1hr sets under our belt by the end of May at the absolute latest (hopefully a lot sooner). If you are interested, let me know and I'll get back to you with more details!

Lead Guitarist wanted for gigging band

Rokoko are currently looking for a lead guitarist to join us We are a 3 piece upbeat indie band from Medway and have spent the last year gigging solidly. In 2013 we released our debut album, played a number of festivals, supported mark morriss from the Bluetones, gigged pretty much the whole kent circuit as well as a number of London gigs including Proud and Dublin Castle in Camden.

In 2014 we plan to carry on gigging and writing. We have some great gigs in the pipeline including a club night gig at the o2 academy.

We are looking for someone who is passionate, reliable and able to gig 2-3 times a month as well as a rehearsal most weeks(usually a Monday evening). Ideally we’d love to have a lead guitarist who can provide lead/backing vocals however this isn’t essential. The main thing is that we find someone who can play to a decent standard. Must also be able to drive and have access to a vehicle.

Lead Guitar, Bass, Drums needed.

Singer/songwriter from Gillingham, looking for musicians to play my songs with me. Last ear I played 30 odd shows, some in London, some in Kent. I want simple music that avoids cliched licks and cheesy solos. Think Ed Harcourt/Frank Turner/Fleet Foxes/Nick Drake. If you like contemporary indie/folk/acoustic, anything that sounds like it was recorded in a barn, then pop me an email. Hoping to practice once or twice a week, aiming to build up to a gig a week too, so this is something of a commitment.

I have over an hour of original songs, you can hear 4 of them here:

Vocalist needed Ashford

We are looking for a singer to join a band in Ashford,
Are music is totally original and without trying to put our style in a box, we are rocky, catchy riffs, solid beats and melodic. We try to get a well polished sound and really need a singer who loves the freedom to come up with their own lyrics, enjoys creating and having an input in song writing. We all have experience performing and have our own practice space (no cost there).

We are mid twenties, love playing, have a lot of fun and like to progress as much as possible so that we can get out performing. We have 3 songs at the moment (very rough recordings can be supplied).
We don't mind if you have bags of experience or if you have none, all we ask for is a bit of commitment (practice once a week).
We are easy to get on with and you wont have to worry about dealing with any big egos, (even the guitarists!

Metal Vocalist/Screamer looking to join / Form Metal Band

I am a highly experienced 26yo Metal Vocalist eagerly looking for a new Band. i have spent the last 9 years perfecting my Growls and Screams along with crowd control and stage presence. some of my main influences are Christian Alvestam (S.45 and Ex-Scar Symmetry), Dark Tranquility, Anterior, Before the Dawn, As i Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, L.O.G, Insomnium, Kalmah and Amon Amarth to name but a few.
I live in the outskirts of Gravesend but have my own transport and am willing to travel for the right band. i have done recordings and hundreds of live gigs covering most of Kent and London (and picked up a few contacts with some signed bands) and also managed to come 2nd in the Battle for Bloodstock with a previous band a few years back.

Sadly my last band split about 2 years ago and due to some other commitments i decided to take a break. but i have been working hard to get back to my top form and i'm now itching to get back on the stage ASAP
the ideal band would be with some dedicated members who are looking to push themselves (whilst leaving the egos at the door) but able to have a laugh and enjoy it too. My preferred style of metal is the Melodic Metal but due to learning many different scream styles i view myself to be a versatile performer and songwriter.
Please get in contact as i am ready to go! ask any questions you like and if you can please respond with your Band details, Location and any recordings you may have rough demo or otherwise.

Thanks Guys and Gals
