Guitar player/vocalist needed by steady working dance band. We gig two to four times a month only on weekends playing Motown, disco and dance orientated rock. We do nightclubs, occasional private parties and weddings. This is a polished, well rehearsed, recently established situation. We are seeking a lead guitar player with a good voice and projection to carry all the guitar work and 30% of the male lead vocals (give or take). We are all middle aged pro players with upbeat personalities, good lead and supporting vocals, and great PA. Also must be committed to one rehearsal a week. https://www.thesurgenj.com/

Piano Player Experienced in Mercerville
Experienced piano player who likes to play mostly jazz - seeking situation. I love all types of music - especially standards, coming up with jazzy arrangements for pop tunes and smooth jazz. I have played out many times, can read charts, improvise, play left-hand bass, accompany other soloists and vocalists. Check out my playing on You Tube under "Chazz Quartet" (link below). I have a large carpeted rehearsal space in Mercer County. I am not comfortable playing out without rehearsals - and lots of them. I'm taking a laid-back approach to my music right now, but I'd love to find a situation that's right for me (and you). View Website

Drummers! We are looking for someone who loves the great songs from the days when MTV actually played music. We are a start-up band with lead guitar, bass & singer/rhythm guitar players. We are looking for someone with enthusiasm for the genre who can play the songs from bands like: INXS, Crowded House, Elvis Costello, Cars, Police, REM, Ramones, & some of the cool One-Hit Wonder bands that got heavy airplay in the early 80's. Vocals are a plus but not a deal breaker. WE are easy-going guys who want to rehearse once a week and play out a few times a year and make virtually no money.
