Okay, this has nothing to do with Homeland Secure IT, but it has everything to do with fun!
Most of you who follow this blog also know I am a musician and you may or may not know that I am “between bands”.
I’ve decided that starting a new, fun and funky band is what I really want to do. Not doing the average country rock, southern rock, classic rock or any one other genre, but instead, to do a variety of music that people want to hear at events, festivals, fairs, corporate grand openings, dances, parties, wedding receptions and the like.
We’re talking tunes from across all genres, from rock to reggae, disco to country, jazz to blues. So basically, anything with a great groove is fair game! No downer, “cry in your beer” type songs here, and just a sprinkling of the well loved, and maybe over-done songs. Maybe some originals thrown in for good measure.
And while it will be a “cover band”, these covers will not be performed exactly as the original. If people wanted to hear the original music, they wouldn’t book a band, they would hire a DJ!
The project is called “Hot As A Pepper”!
If this sounds like something you want to get involved in if you are a guitarist, vocalist, keyboard player or drummer, then let’s talk. Or maybe you know someone who might fit into a group like this… Please pass on my contact information to them…
There are a few requirements though…
- Must be reliable – this requires work, you will need to be there
- There will be at least one rehearsal per week, more if everyone is up for it
- This will be a gigging band – at least a gig per month, probably averaging 2 to 3 per month
- This will be PRIMARILY local to the Upstate – no touring here
- There WILL BE smoky bars/clubs with maybe intoxicated people around
- There WILL BE late night gigs (hopefully more events/festivals after a year or so though)
- You have to have a great personality – fun to be around.
- This is not ONLY for money… If you are driven ONLY by money, uhmmm you won’t be happy!
