Guitarist wanted for professional function band / theatre company
All regions, United Kingdom
Talented, versatile & committed musician with a broad knowledge of music & previous live experience
To give you an idea of what we do and what we're looking for - 'Tuxedo Groove' was formed about 10 years ago and in that time have established themselves as one of Essex / South East's leading party bands, performing at all manner of events from corporate to private, weddings, anniversary's, holiday camps etc. We gig usually 2-3 times a month for a minimum of £120 per person, per function.
Theatre company information
The theatre company was established in 1992 and 3-4 times a year perform modern / rock musicals at the Kenneth More Theatre, Ilford. These productions are staged to raise money for a variety of charities, from Macmillan Cancer Relief to the Meningitis Trust and as such neither the cast, crew or band are paid for their involvement but a good time is had by all and it certainly is a great experience. We have just started rehearsals for our next production which takes place at the end of September; the new 70's musical 'Boogie Nights'. With only 8 weeks to go before the production, I am sure you can see just how desperate we are to find a suitable replacement.
Rehearsals take place in our own rehearsal studio in Romford, Essex generally on a Thursday evening for the function band (until the set is fully rehearsed when we rehearse only once every 3-4 weeks) and on a Wednesday for the theatre company but only when near a production.
For more information about the band and theatre company, please take a look at our websites upon application and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Payment details: Various
Talented, versatile and committed musician with a broad knowledge of music and previous live experience. Also looking for someone who is looking for long-term involvement as it is quite costly and time consuming redoing promotional material, website, band outfits etc. Sight reading and B/V would be an advantage but the ability to improvise and play by ear are essential as are a good personal manner and someone who works well as part of a team.
Any gender, aged 25 to 99 from United Kingdom
