We are looking for some kindling. We are The Bonfire Merchants. We play music for the Ember generation (people who would be on Tinder 'cept they are over 40). Focus is on DANCE MUSIC from mostly 80s, with some 70s and more recent.

ALL COVERS PLEASE. We will be a tight band that gets paid to cover melodic dance hits that are not your typical top 40 (see sample set list below). Not a note-for-note tribute band, but a very solid and playful group who play to please.
We rehearse together once per week, and our goal is 1-2 gigs per month.

Re: Demos (attached):
All are my own voice (no autotune or other fixing). They are provided to demonstrate vocal range and/or power. I AM NOT PERFORMING MOST OF THEM ANYMORE because they aren't really danceable (unless very, very drumk).

***By the way, totally kidding about the bagpipes. Is there such a thing as an expert bagpipe player in any case? I mean, I have offered people money to stop playing the bagpipes.....
