Two talented and hard-working musicians (guitar, keys/bass) are in the process of formulating a one-of-a-kind music project, and are currently looking for extremely dedicated, talented, and open-minded musicians to complete our team. We are not looking for 'accessory' players by any means; we need individuals who are intent on being vital contributors to both the creative and business facets of the band. The two of us are very serious about success, and are looking for like-minded individuals who are thinking along the same lines. If you are unwilling or unable to make this project a top priority in your life, than please look elsewhere. We have many years of live and studio experience, quality gear, and are looking to get serious about rehearsing, performing, and recording A.S.A.P. We are extremely open-minded in terms of musical styles, but we are looking to formulate dance-oriented shows (up-tempo, groove-oriented songs with a flavour of electronica). Furthermore, we are currently in the process of collaborating with video editors to put together a high-concept visual component to complement live performances, creating the 'total sensory experience'. Additionally, we are looking to employ creative lighting, theatrical techniques, and thematic musical elements to bring people a truly one-of-a-kind live performance experience.
Rather than looking for specific instrumentalists, we are seeking the caliber of musician who demonstrates the qualities we are looking for, as mentioned above. Given the open-ended nature of the music, vocalists, drummers, keyboardists, brass, strings, DJ’s, programmers, bassists, or any combination of the above could fit the bill. If you think the project might be up your alley, please check out some rough demos at and we’ll take things from there.
