The Cheating Hearts are based around Manchester/ Lancs. We do a mixture of what has become known as roots music – Country, Soul, Blues, Folk, Rock n Roll etc etc. Covers but they all sound like us. Think Steve Earle, Creedence, The Faces, LIndisfarne, John Prine, Bonnie Raitt, The Band, Little Feat, Neil Young – you know the sort of thing. We try to steer away from the usual pub-rock repertoire without being too obscure.
We’re pretty well established – and pretty good, too – and get some decent quality work, though we’re not going to be turning pro anytime soon! Regular pub and club gigs, festivals and a pleasing number of private parties etc.
You’d definately be a featured player, as it were, rather than just playing pads and adding colour and you’d need to have a level of improvisory ability and not be afraid of the limelight, solo wise.
Vocals an def advantage, though not a deal breaker as we have two good strong singers already.
We have a very long song-list – 100+ – and we rarely rehearse (though obviously we’d do a few to get you bedded in). We have a large archive of live recordings that we’d let you have. You’d be welcome to bring your own song ideas along.
If this sounds like the sort of thing you’re into get in touch, either via this site or phone 07539 237 291 or email us – email@example.com
