Rhythm Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

Hi,
We are a 7 pieces Pure Funk/Dance Band, bass, Keys, drums, Guitar, Mezzo Soprano, Soprano and Alto vocalist, female singers ONLY.

We are looking for:
1) A drummer as our current one has to leave due to health related issues. His replacement should be:
- Having great friendship and good musicianship too
- Being able to play perfectly on a click, we have samples and drumbox running on almost all the songs.
- Being tight in his playing and knowing the songs, where to start, where to end, where are the fills in and how to play them in tight and precise harmony with the recording
- But we are trying to play a lot of live version so, when the songs require it, being able to add some creativity in all the places where our set up cannot compete with the hugely processed songs of our repertoire.
- Liking Funk/dance music of post 2010's, if it's older, it has to be in the vein of Chic/Nile Rodgers.
- Being able to adapt to the requests of the singers and the band leader: There is no big ego in the band but we are still very good professionals and have been individually playing for years...
- Charts with lyrics/verse/etc structure of songs and drums charts are available but still need to be adjusted to your liking.
- 7 pieces drum kit (3 Up, one Down plus two snares) available on site and a huge selection of cymbals plus fully Tama Star Maple 1973 kit. Kit serving for practices, recording and shows...

2) A guitarist as our current one has too much difficulties to commit these days with his new job/Schedule and have decided to quit asking us to find someone else to take the guitar duties under his wings.
Our guitariste should be:
- Having great friendship and good musicianship too
- Being able to play perfectly following the Drummer who is on a click (Click/Claps, etc, provided through an IEM), we have samples and drumbox running on almost all the songs, We cannot asked "them" to catch up or "accelerate" to follow the drift of any musicien.
- Being tight in his playing and knowing the songs, where to start, where to end, where are the fills in and how to play them in a tight and precise harmony with the recording.
- But we are trying to play a lot of live version so, when the songs requires it, being able to add some creativity in all the places where our set up cannot compete with the hugely processed songs of our repertoire.
- Liking Funk/dance music of post 2010's, if it's older, it has to be in the vein of Chic/Nile Rodgers.
- Being able to adapt to the requests of the singers and the band leader: There is no big ego in the band but we are still very good professionals and have been individually playing for years...
- Being adaptable enough on what guitar he plays as we provide 4 High end guitars that have have been selected to tailor the sound of each songs. (G & L made in USA Legacy Stratocaster and Asat Telecaster, Ibanez high end Gibson ES335 model). If one of your guitar match our style, we will use it too.
- Charts with lyrics/verse/etc structure of songs and guitar charts are available but still need to be adjusted to your liking.
- Gear provided:
Monitors and Headphone amplifiers provided for everyone so, practice is "quite" calm and refreshing, musicians are not tired with feedback and not being able to hear themselves.


Our current repertoire is mainly based on Pure Funk/Pop/Dance post 2010's songs...
If it's older, it has to have a connection with the vision of the band...Think Chic/Nile Rodgers...

Our show is 4 hours, 3 sets of 16 songs.
