An accomplished, experienced DRUMMER is needed NOW to complete a new, Essex-based BLUES band looking to a wide BLUES repertoire.
The full (i.e. 5-piece) band line-up is to be: vocals/harmonica, lead/slide guitar, rhythm guitar, upright/electric bass and drums.
The players are all of a seriously good standard and have already drawn plaudits from highly-respected sources.
Material is taken from the songbooks of Chicago Blues artists such as Buddy Guy/Junior Wells, Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker etc.
What we absolutely do NOT need is a drummer who loves to play deafeningly loud and heavy, as the material will be delivered as authentically as we can. If anything, we need a drummer with a good appreciation of ‘light and shade’ dynamics and who knows how to use brushes on the occasional number or two!
RECENT, LIVE RECORDINGS OF OUR WORK CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THOSE GENUINELY INTERESTED/SUITABLE FOR THE ROLE.
So if you’re a drummer, into the BLUES and genuinely committed to weekly rehearsals and gigging going forward, please message me NOW with your ‘phone number so we can have a chat as, hopefully, a fast start into a first get-together!
