Band members wanted

We're looking for a splash of grenadine for our tequila

We're looking for a rhythm player, bass player and percussionist, based in the lower north island (rehearsals in Wellington).

Our bass player is leaving to explore pastures new overseas, and we also need a rhythm player (since Bob can only play one guitar at a time) and a percussionist.  

You have to be used to slotting into a rhythm section and holding the line.  If you can also take lead breaks, that's all good too.  We got that covered, but hey, more is better.  That sounds like one of those nice problems. 

Or are you a drummer?  We can talk about that too.  Small jazz or roots kit, maybe just a snare and kick, or a percussion mix, good on brushes - if you have that going on, and you're not immediately put off by our noise, get in touch. 

Ideally, we want someone who can do at least one other thing, too.  You might play another instrument as well, or you might be a great singer.  Are you a tasty drummer who also plays accordion or piano?  You're a great rhythm guitar player but also play trumpet?  Nice. 

If you're a songwriter too, even better, we're always looking for great songs.  Bring 'em along.  So, if you've got great rhythm, on strings or brushes, whatever, and you're prepared to play Spanish American Kiwi folk rock n'roll, we want to hear from you. 

You may be any age, shape, size, gender, colour or hue, and play pretty much any instrument(s), but there are some criteria you must meet:

  • You must speak at least some English; or be fluent in French or Dutch and be, by nature, extremely patient
  • You must have your own instrument(s)
  • These must be fully strung / have all their keys on them, and you must be able to tune them
  • You must already be able to play the instrument(s); we got enough problems
  • You cannot be called Emily
  • Your name must not be Rob, Bob, Rab, Bert or any variation of Robert
