Drummer needed for 80’s cover band. The band is made up of easy-going, professional guys in the 50’s age range. We rehearse once a week with occasional gigs. The emphasis is on fun rather than making money. We’re doing great songs that have slipped through the cracks. Think early MTV, New Wave and One Hit Wonders. The Cars, INXS, SImple Minds, U2, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads, REM, Flock of Seagulls and a few bands here and there from the 70’s. Vocals are a huge plus but not manditory.

Damn The Torpedoes is a NJ based Tom Petty Tribute Band that tours regionally and regularly-currently looking to replace our lead guitarist before end February 2020. Serious an accomplished players only please. Must be a quick learner and retain the contents of a two hour show. Candidates also need to be solid on slide. You must have a flexible schedule, good availability, transportation and pro gear. Travel is mainly in the North East with some overnight dates. We are mostly interested in finding a new member, but we may also need a competent sub occasionally. The band currently has gigs on the calendar through 2020 with established venues. Please respond with video links to recent projects if you have them. Auditions will begin after Thanksgiving.
