Professional Function Band Looking for Full Time Guitarist and Bassist
Age range: 21-35
Area: South-East Wales (however we are looking to branch further afield so will consider guitarists willing to travel)
Provide Backing Vocals (but not essential.)
We are a professional function band specializing in popular covers. We cover a variety of music from old Rock & Roll and Rock classics to famous groovy Soul/Funk tracks and new Pop tracks.
We have regular gigs every weekend at venues across South Wales, and are hoping to branch out across the UK for corporate events, weddings and festivals.
We are looking to go ahead for Cruise Ship work with one of the agencies we are represented by towards the end of this year.
Our regular paid Clubs/ Pubs and Social Clubs work is £60-£80 each member. For private hire function work such as Cooperate or Weddings is £100-£150 each member.
You must be competent to play in a variety of styles. You must be able to improvise and perform on stage, and enjoy playing music with the band and working together as a team.
Here’s a bit more detail about us –
After more than six years playing with a variety of groups, manager and drummer Richard Trussell started the band, originally called ‘Ruby and the Valentines’, in 2016.
Based in Torfaen, South Wales, we started out playing at local venues but were soon contacted by companies for corporate events, and couples for weddings and anniversaries. A real highlight was featuring on Made in Cardiff TV, where our performance was played on their prime-time show. The production company enjoyed our music so much that we were asked to perform on another program showing!
Now with a new name, The Royal Valentines, and a few new members, we are looking forward to playing at more events across the UK.
Rehearsal / production datesAuditions will be held at our Studio in Cardiff on the Sunday 4th March
