As a bassist I'm available for a full time position, or deps, for covers and function work. I've got years of playing experience at high level doing this so I know all the standards - 50's to present day material. I also sing BVs. My gear is all top drawer stuff and I have a reliable van. I'm based in north London but I'm used to driving all over for gigs, South East, South West, South coast, Midlands and beyond, it's no problem.
I also run my own PA and it's available for hire. I have an FBT PA system, a medium sized function rig - 3k FOH from the tops & subs, with 4 quality FBT monitors (10 auxes on my desk so lots of IEMs are no problem). Loads of mics to cover vocals, horns, drums, backline, with wireless iPad mixing. Lights & moving heads (smoke machine where it's allowed) too. It's all fully PAT tested and I have public liability insurance.
PM me if you'd like some more info.
This is from a gig at Durrington Working Men's Club from February 23rd '19. Durrington is near Stonehenge for reference.
The gig was to showcase our new horn section and new drummer and we only had one rehearsal as a full band so it has a raw feel to it. This was also the first time I'd played 'Tears of a Clown' live (played a semi tone down in 'c').
Video was shot but the quality was terrible. Our singer, Kurt, recorded this on his laptop.
*Made a video of stills to get the mp3 uploaded and playable. Some shots of the band live, some of artists we cover, none of Smokey Robinson!!!*
*You don't have to watch the video just close your eyes*
I'm 36, played regularly up north on the pub circuit for about 5 years, looking to join a similar band down here.
Recently single, so plenty of time to commit!
Based in Hackney.
Interested in playing stuff like: ACDC, Queen, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Whitesnake, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Bowie, Fleetwood Mac etc...
Got gear and guitars etc..
Give me a shout.
