Hi, I run a tribute band called PURPLE TREE. We specialise in the music of Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow and other artists / bands related to the Deep Purple family tree, hence the name.
Our London based Italian singer has sadly just called it a day, as he is re-locating to Greece, lucky s*d !
We are based north Midlands and North Lincolnshire, so ideally someone within that rough area. We have worked with long distance members before but it is logistically difficult. We rehearse either near Derby / Nottingham or in North Lincs.
It is a demanding role, as you will be emulating 6 of arguably the finest ever rock singers – Ian Gillan, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Ronnie James Dio, Graham Bonnet and Joe Lynn Turner. We would most certainly also consider a female vocalist with a strong rock voice.
Here is a YouTube link to some videos of various previous line ups – the original promo, some recorded / staged promos, and various live gigs where the sound is perhaps not so hot, but it will give you the general idea.
We are looking to be ready to gig once the current situation with Covid has abated somewhat, so realistically 2021 or maybe late 2020. Please PM me if you are interested, or if you spot this and know someone who might be a good fit, even if they are in an existing band, again please share and / or PM me.
