ABOUT

** Seeking drummer **

Dashboard Stereo started with lead vocalist Andrew, and bass player Clarence, who worked together in a previous band (OnEdge, 2010/2011). Tracks are home recordings of that band. Live video was from the same period when phone cameras didn't pick up any bass! Two guitarists have joined the effort to create a project that is equal parts fun and top-quality. All members have lots of experience, walk the walk when it comes to booking gigs, and get things done while having fun.

The pandemic is real, conspiracy theorists need not apply. However, once all the Covid craziness is behind us, we plan to be firing on all cylinders. The hope is that starting a band now provides motivation to plug in at home and gives us something to look forward to.

Looking for band members who prefer to be in one project at a time and focus on helping to build something worth doing. Given the challenges of getting into a room together, including video/audio on your profile is appreciated.

• Are the first three presets on your car radio 97.7, 107.1, and 107.9? We're the band for you. A blend of classic, modern, and alternative rock songs that anyone will recognize. We want to be bookable. Upbeat and energetic.
• We’re in the 50 to 54 range if it matters to you.
• We have lots of fun but take the quality part of things rather seriously.
• We learn songs on our own time and show up to band practices (1X per week) with our parts ready. We're not "jammers."
• The plan is to gig once a month. Sometimes gigs will pop on consecutive nights or consecutive weekends. We might go an entire month without a gig. It depends on the opportunity, but in general, we'll aim for a balance.
• We are "volume aware" :) Hey, we actually love it loud. Not many bar owners love it, and they're the boss!
• When there are opportunities for $, we'll take it. However, we plan to work with bar owners and help them get back on their feet. If we are as good as we think we'll be and draw crowds, then the $ will follow. The live scene was on life support before the pandemic. Gotta be realistic as we all claw our way back!
