Multiple opening for in development theatre aimed bands:

Endless - The Toto Tribute
Fearless - The Taylor Swift Experience

In 2019, Dave Phillips Music will be developing two brand new top tier shows : Endless: The Toto Tribute and Fearless - The Taylor Swift Experience.

Both shows will be heading towards theatres and live music venues in 2020 and this is your chance to secure a place in these shows that we expect to be touring the UK and the world once established. Holiday parks, hotels and private work will also be sourced.

We are looking for the following committed musicians:

Male vocalist - Endless - able to mimic the style of  Bobby Kimball

Bass guitarist - Fearless - ideally with back vocal harmony ability

Keyboards - Fearless + Endless - ideally with backing vocal harmony ability. Must own a contemporary keyboard or software synth rack capable of producing authentic 80’s tones for Endless, and contemporary tones + sample triggering for a Fearless. (The player does not need to apply to work with both bands)

Guitarist - Endless - ideally with back vocal ability. Must be able to play electric lead to a very high level in the style of Steve Lukather, be able to assimilate a very close approximation of recorded arrangements, and be able to replicate a close approximation of his sound.

Guitarist - Fearless  - ideally with backing and lead vocal ability. Must be able to play acoustic rhythm and electric lead to a good level.

Drummer - Fearless - ideally with backing vocal ability but not essential. Must be able to play pop and country rock styles and have access to triggered samples for the more “produced” drum sounds of Taylor Swift records.

Female Vocalist - Fearless - we are also recruiting an outstanding female vocalist to take the role of Taylor Swift in the Fearless Show. The chosen candidate will have a very strong stage presence and command of the stage, have a similar vocal texture and be able to replicate her style and Southern twang in places. The chosen candidate must be able to interact with an audience very well and be able to generate a good rappor with the onstage musicians.

Ideally, we are looking for musicians and performers who will commit long term to the shows, demonstrate a commitment to developing a top level visual and musical show over a long period of time, and commit to dates that are booked. The players will be excellent communicators, have a professional attitude towards their work and their responsibilities, be down to Earth and easy to get along with.

Fees will sit in excess of £150 per show + reasonable travel to be agreed, with bonuses for high selling shows and scope for increases with regular high audience attendance. Some Holiday park and cruise ship budgets *may* require the occasional lower performance fee, but we don’t expect that to be the case.

Once established, we expect to be regularly booking for weekly Thursday to Sunday shows.

All musicians will be subject to contract and must commit to a fair rehearsal and promotional video recording schedule to ensure that the show can begin to be advertised at the earliest possible time. 

To apply - send a message containing links to the following:

* a cv with photo
* your current website and promo video
* video audition pieces of you performing at least two appropriate parts from the back catalogue of the band you’d like to apply for (Taylor Swift or Toto). These are your choice and you should choose parts that will show off your ability to convince us that you can meet the requirements of the roles, as detailed above. (Cell phone footage is fine)

Please note that all applications must include everything asked for above, and applications that don’t include these requirements may be discounted or not prioritised. For the best success, we suggest mailing us directly from our website.
