Keys Player Needed for Established Soul Function Band

Keys Player Needed for Established Soul Function Band

Manchester, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

I listed the position below recently, but since then our current keys player has decided that he would prefer to dep both bands. So first of all we have just confirmed a gig lined up on the 18th December for an 80’s theme which would be best suited to someone new (1 hour 10 mins of playtime in total). Then we have an nye gig, plus a couple next year for the soul band (which lee can cover if you’re not available). We’ve been restricting ourselves to Saturday gigs only due to our current keys guys availability, but of course this can open up now). If you use MainStage then our keys player will be able to share his sounds with you to make things easier.

The DeeVines have been together for just over a decade now as a six piece soul based function band (weddings, corporate, parties etc). We've decided that we want to offer an 80's themed band using the same people, however our keyboard player has had some health issues and is also pretty full on with his day job and doesn't want to commit to a complete new setlist.

We have deps for every position in the band, except for keys. So as a side benefit we want the keyboard player in the 80's band to also provide cover for the dates our man can't do (and vice versa) As he generally can only work Saturdays for the most part, there should be some work available here.

Our current keys player has already offered to share his sounds with the new member, so hopefully this limits the amount of programming time. We also have pretty much all of the songs recorded in the established band, so we should be able to provide these as a learning tool, both with and without the keyboards in the mix.

The plan as far as the 80's setlist goes is to emulate what the general public think of as typically 80's, we have a rough idea of songs, but certainly want any incoming member to have as much as a say in this as everyone else.

We have a top quality PA system and with an in-ear monitoring system where you can control your own personal mix on your smartphone. The DeeVines are fairly established with a few agencies, although our own website presence has waned over the last few years.

Other financial benefits available like early wedding sets (sometimes one vocalist with a keyboard player, other times acoustic guitar depending on the customers preference), plus additional commission if you bring in any gigs.

Everybody in the band is paid the same, we share everything equally.

We have a corporate gig lined up, but not yet fully confirmed for the 18th December, so this would be something to work to.

I'll have limited availability to get back to everyone between 17th-23rd of October, but will get back to everyone who shows an interested. Own transport is essential.

Thanks for looking.
