Pro band looking for a solid, energetic and dependable drummer for cross-genre dance band: Classic and modern rock-and-roll, funk, jazz, R and B, pop, disco, Motown, country, and Latin rhythms, played for over-40 upscale dance audience.
Classic, adult-dancable rock and roll, some jazz, some standards, some Latin rhythms, some R and B, we are playing Adult-Danceable upscale, non offensive, music with variety, built around a core of solid R and R classics.
We play out regularly and have future shows booked. We are in demand for more than we want. People stay and listen to us because they want to hear what we'll play next. Its all very nice. We have top representation.
We are a cover band: We expect a reasonable approximation of the original drum line. If you cannot learn a specific drum line reasonably well, please don't respond: It is not necessary to be perfect but we don't want to hear the same bop ba-bop line for every song. The band is composed of good musicians and requires an equivalently competent drummer. We had an awesome drummer but he moved and the fill-ins have been substandard. Cannot use a quiet guy who sits in the back, someone who is late coming out of his flams, or someone who cat hit a rim shot!
We rehearse Saturday afternoons in Ponte Vedra Beach. No beer/weed at practice.
Age is not an issue, but most have long-since seen forty and want the style of those who have also, and specifically those who will work to keep the bar high regarding quality.
