Pianist Needed For Female Jazz (American Songbook Style) Vocalist
Looking for a pianist who is experienced with Jazz Standards/ The American Songbook style of jazz to get a set together as quickly as we can, get some videos done for promo, and start gigging around the Milton Keynes, Bedford, Northampton and London area. Someone who is up for doing something a little different. The idea is to give the audience the feel of being immersed in a different time, taking them on a journey through the 20s/30s/40s/50s glamour with smooth jazz and a sultry fun performance. Artist wise think Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Doris Day, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole etc
You must be passionate about performing this type of music, and understand that some short gigs (short sets) might have to be done at first to showcase our act, then paid gigs will surely come (unless you already know an agent/venue willing to take us on!).
Will need to have time to rehearse and get a really good set together. You must either live in Milton Keynes or be able to easily get here for rehearsals and gigs so that we can get this going ASAP. If you live in London we can split rehearsals between MK and London. I’m looking for us to be gigging by the end of January! :)
Must be able to drive and willing to drive us to gigs (fuel costs will ofcourse be split!) - I have a complete PA system that we can use.
If all goes well, looking to expand with more musicians.
If this sounds like something you’d like to do, get in touch!
Please no time wasters, someone who can commit to rehearsing until we have our set, and who understands that it takes work, and who is reliable.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesWe can negotiate when to rehearse together
Paid : Gigs will be split 50/50
