ABOUT

Welcome to our band “Short Circuit” – BandMix Site

We would love to tell you a bit about our Rock / Blues Classic Cover band. We have all been playing music for many decades and we come from the era of music where some of the greatest bands and music of all time were once prevalent, the late 1960’s, 70’s. Where the Blues music was interjected into the new Rock scene and magic began to happen. Many or most of those bands are now long gone, but their music lives on, and our band “Short Circuit” is proud to be able to play this music, and other eras of music, and hope we can get out and play it for people to enjoy. Back in our youth there were many venues where people could go see live bands play and or go to dances, we want to bring some of that back as we believe that music soothes the soul and is much needed in our World today as it was once long ago, music with grit and soul that makes people happy and want to dance or just sit back and listen and enjoy.

On this BandMix profile we have some examples of our recordings of popular cover tunes so you can hear what we sound like. Unlike many artists these days who record using computers and cut and paste techniques, our recordings are done the old school way “one take” what you hear is what you get. Having said this, we use a multi track recorder and each member does their part on a separate track then it is mixed down to a “master track” which is what is posted here, again just like it was done back in the good ol’ days.

Our band currently consists of four members – Two guitar / vocalists, One bass / vocalist and One keyboard / vocalist. The drums are done using what are called “drum loops” which are real drum tracks recorded onto a machine that can play them back in different patterns and styles.

In regards to our search for a drummer, as we currently use a drum looper we can play gigs and the songs you can hear on this site are done with the drum looper. If there is a drummer out there that is interested and believes they can do what our drum loop machine can do we'd love to have you over for a jam session.

We hope you like what you see and read here, and more so that you enjoy our music examples and perhaps we can come play for your function or gathering.

All the best – “Short Circuit”, Kamloops, B.C. live band
