Trumpet (or Sax) player for Gigging 50s & 60s Covers Band

Trumpet (or Sax) player for Gigging 50s & 60s Covers Band

London, UK
Listed by View details

Who are we?
- The Corvids, a Central London 5-piece gigging covers band playing great music from the 50s and 60s.
- We comprise bass, drums, rhythm and lead guitar, male and female harmony lead vocals plus [you] on trumpet or saxophone!
- The band members are in this to make great music, play live and to have fun (and to earn a bit of cash from doing what they love!)

Who are we looking for?
- A talented trumpet or sax player (ideally around Grade 8 standard)
- Someone prepared to invest a bit of time and effort in getting the project to the next stage and is interested in joining a band as a band member to make great music (and not just in it for money).
- Fortnightly rehearsals at excellent studios in Bethnal Green.

Money and things...
We are currently doing paid pub gigs and more than breaking-even from live performance (i.e. gig monies cover our rehearsal and travel costs plus a bit more). But making money is not our major driver, as most of the existing band members are in full time work (one has just enrolled at music college full time). So please bear that in mind if you are a "pro" who is only looking to join an established function band - this won't be the right project for you.

The band is, however, very well resourced from its own funds and we are in the process of getting a high quality showreel done (we have funding for that already in place) and to engage with an agency to get regular better paid function work.

If this sounds like an exciting project and you're also a fan of the genre, then please get in touch and let us have:
- a brief description of you and your current "9 to 5" etc. and whereabouts in London you're based?
- please let me know if you play anything else besides trumpet or saxophone and whether you sing?
- a YouTube clip of you playing (If you don't have a YouTube video, then record some video footage on your mobile phone).

We look forward to hearing from you.
