I'm looking for an established group that needs a lead singer focusing on four seasons and the Bee Gees with the ability to harmonize, having a 3+ vocal range makes it easy to sing all four parts when necessary, I am available seven days a week day or night and very experienced singing from the fifties through the eighties and whatever material is necessary to do the job, I do not have a link or u tube, cause I want to hear your act as well as in real time.

Drummers! An extremely fun 80's cover band is looking for a replacement drummer! We are all in our 40s and not looking to become rich or famous, just to play with easygoing, talented people and play out every once in a while. We have a comfortable rehearsal space with a full drum kit. We are doing music from the early MTV days, stuff like Squeeze, REM, The Cars, Billy Idol, INXS, The Police, etc. with a big focus on one-hit-wonders. Talent is great but a great attitude is more important. Vocals are a plus.

We're looking for a new lead guitar for our 80s, 90s garage band in the Redbank area. If your age 30s through 50s and have the time to learn the songs AT HOME before rehearsal hit me up. We're not looking for note for note leads. Improvising them so they sound familiar is fine. I have a fully equipped studio in my garage with a drum kit, PA system, mics, mixing board, bass and guitar amps. It's a fun low pressure night.

Group of mature players looking for a keyboard player that wants to have fun playing. We currently play approx twice a month with an emphasis on private affairs. We cover tunes from the 50's through the 80's. We get a decent rate for all of our gigs, so don't think this is a gratis position. All of the players get along and we want to keep it this way. Sound interesting to you? Reply with an email to find out more.

80's Cover Band in South Amboy
Keyboard Players! Are you looking to get back to playing in a band but don't want the drama and hassle that usually comes with it? We are an 80's cover band that focuses on early hits from New Wave and One Hit Wonder Bands. Remember when MTV actually played music? How cool would it be to play those fun songs with guys who are not only talented but also fun to play with? Already moving forward as a four -piece, but keys would make the songs sound much more authentic. Have comfortable rehearsal space with PA.

Bill in Red Bank
We are experienced musicians (guitar, bass, drums and lead vocals, ages 50+), and have recently launched a '70s era classic rock/prog rock/fusion project. We're performing songs by Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Rush, Pink Floyd, etc. We're looking for the final piece to play this music well - a solid keyboards player. Our goals are to enjoy the music (including playing out on occasion), and to have fun and make solid friendships while doing it. Everything else is icing on the cake. We are based in central Monmouth County. The project is a team effort, so plan to leave your ego at the door. Backing vocals and ability on other instruments besides keys is a plus. If you've read this far and are interested, drop us a line. Thanks!
