ABOUT

CALL FOR FEMALE MUSICIANS/SINGERS

For immediate release.

TORONTO, ON

Looking for female musicians and singers interested in joining a band with a big sound and a theatrical presence. Musicians/singers will be provided with lead sheets and tracks for learning their parts, and are welcome to offer collaborative feedback on refining the songs.
Not necessarily seeking expert players, but rather multi-talented individuals who are inspired by the project.

All levels of experience are encouraged to submit.
Please submit a headshot and list of musical skills, including voice type/range, along with your contact info.
Auditions will be hosted during November and December, and will consist of a demonstration of ability and a 'jam' session.

Seeking the following core instruments:
Piano
Bass
Drums
Guitar
Trumpet
Trombone
Saxophone (alto or tenor)
Violin
Viola
Cello
Double bass/Upright bass

Other auxiliary instruments:
Accordion
Synth

REHEARSALS
We have a rehearsal space with a drum kit, guitar amp and bass amp and vocal mics. Singers/Musicians are required to bring their own instruments. Instruments can be rented at low cost from places like Long & McQuade. Rehearsal schedule will be built around availability.

IMAGE
The image of the band is a classy, upscale and extravagant feel. Tuxes and gowns are not outside the scope of the band's image. The band's show will be a very theatrical experience, and thus is not suited to small pubs, cafes, etc.

PAYMENT
3 shows 'on spec', then paying shows only.
Musicians/Singers are asked to perform no more than 3 gigs 'on spec', as the band develops a demo reel. After these three performances, the band will accept only paying gigs, unless otherwise agreed upon by all members. If after three shows on spec you are asked to perform another without payment, you are not obligated to participate, and will not be pressured to do so.

PROJECT PLAN
The band will develop a demo reel that captures a reputation of excellence through a series of high-quality theatrical performances. This demo reel will be presented in person to Derek Ross of Slaight Music, with the expectation of developing a working relationship that will help this project grow into a successful commercial venture.
