The Broken Hipsters


Vocalist, Bass Guitar.


The Broken Hipsters are about
- Roots Rock; Blue Rodeo, John Mellencamp, etc.
- Classic Rock; The Eagles, Springsteen, Petty, acoustic Zep, etc.
- Folk; Neil Young, CSNY, etc.
- Country; Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Lyle Lovitt, etc.
Call it Americana, but there's Canadiana too - the Northern Pikes, the Guess Who, the Tragically Hip, Tom Cochrane and more. The approach is great songs with an acoustic vibe. A mix of high energy and ballads, but with an organic - I hate that word but can't think of a better one! - approach.

We're experienced players with a laid back attitude who would like to gig once a month or so and rehearse every other week.

We are looking for a bassist who can also provide some lead and backup vocals. We are planning to keep the configuration a 4 piece - drums, bass, 2 guitars, with doubling on mandolin, banjo, and more.
