ABOUT

Our new band is called "Rendezvous" and we are looking for a final member. I play lead guitar and do some vocals. We also have drums, bass, and a female vocalist. My bandmates are musically talented and nice, easy-going people. (we are 40s-60s in age)

To fill out the sound, we are looking for a combination keyboard and guitar player (mostly rhythm but some lead if you want - I'm happy to share). Just to be clear - we need someone who plays BOTH instruments and has gear, so please don't reply if you are strictly a guitarist! Backup vocals are also a huge plus.

We play a variety of middle-of-the-road covers, focused on songs most people know and love - hopefully, ones that make them sing and dance. We have 10 songs so far and will be patient with someone ramping up. (a sample song list at the bottom for an idea of the musical direction)

We're serious about the sound of the music, but have no visions of rockstar grandeur - this all is about fun and purpose. That said, we will definitely play out when things open up again, but we're not in a frantic hurry or looking for too many gigs since we all work as well.

Weekly practices are in a comfortable, equipped rehearsal space in Mississauga. If this interests you, I'd love to chat!
