The Trade Poets




We are The Trade Poets, and are working towards playing the local live music scene in Calgary.

We play covers spread across multiple genres and decades of music (80's, 90's, 00's and '18) as well as write and play originals.

We welcome all creative input, and wish to foster our own unique sound and deliver it to the stage.

This is what we are looking for in a drummer:
(So as to not waste anyone's time, please carefully read and consider our requirements before applying)

1. Be able to keep time consistently

2. Practice on your own spare time with a click/backing track

3. Commit to rehearsals every Tuesday @ 6:30pm (+/-) to
10:00pm (+/-) with the occasional Saturday or Sunday if
scheduling works

4. Must own vehicle

5. Able to play live

If you're interested in trying out, please reach out to us at tradepoets (at) Gee Mail dot com. We'll set up a meet and greet for a coffee or drink and see if we're the right fit, then head to the jam space a few times and go from there!

Thanks for your time and consideration.
