ABOUT

Shag - the Band is looking for a bass player!

I'm 1/2 of a co-vocal fronted band -- male/female singers. We *think* we have rounded up most of our players with the exception of a bass player. Emphasis is putting on a high-energy performance of danceable music. Get your rock star on -- the theater is as important as the musicality! So if you like wearing leather pants and aren't afraid of eyeliner, we are your band! We have played with a diverse age group, so, all you yougens out there, don't be shy, you'll have a riot with us.

We have day jobs but work to put on a good show and have had the fortune of playing some super fun gigs pre-covid including several shows at the Commodore for charity events.

We hope to gig a couple times a month. We want to be paid (decently) as it is a validation for the work we all do, but it isn't the driving factor. For sure, we would do some amount of charity events a year. There is a likelihood we will be putting on and promoting our own events.

Song choices -- not the usual suspects, but still, one's everyone knows and loves (and goes, "I can't believe they are doing this song"!).

Rehearsing -- we expect for the first six months, give or take, we'd practice once every two weeks -- depending on everyone's availability. Definitely want us all to be 'rehearsed' and know our parts before practice!

Shag -- the band is hoping to hear from you!
