Musicians Seeking Bands and Vice Versa

greg@80waves.net in Monmouth/Ocean
Singing guitarist (lead and rhythm) wanted for Jersey Shore based 80's cover band (with drums, bass, keys, female vocals) for dance-focused audience. Songs are upbeat danceable club tunes that charted on Billboard “Hot 100” or “Hot Dance Club” during 1980-1989. Genres covered are Dance, Party, Pop and Rock, with emphasis on Dance. Arrangements and vocal phrasings are true to original recordings. No stopping between songs (like live DJ), so nailing cues is key. Don’t reply unless totally on board with song list (at http://80waves.net/bookings.html). Permanent lineup situation: no hired guns, fill-ins, subs, or musicians in multiple bands. Must be mature, disciplined and have cover band experience. Typical band member is older (45+) with family and steady source of income. Rehearsals weekly near GSP Exit 91.
