Hi The STREETCAR9 BAND are looking for a confident, Fun and powerful Singer Male or Female to join our amazing 5 piece Soul & Funk Dance band Must be able to communicate with an audience..
Playing cherished favourite's from the god father of Soul "JAMES BROWN", to CURTIS MAYFIELD, TOWER OF POWER, ARETHA FRANKLIN, AVERAGE WHITE BAND and STEVIE WONDER.
We are called Streetcar9 and we have only been together a short while although we have all come from previous bands, recently our original Singer has left due to new career commitments and relocation.
As a Band we are trying to keep away from obvious cover band material so we don't play mustang Sally, Soul man or All night long but try and play brilliant forgotten gems and slightly less well known covers or new cover material
We rehearse around the London area at The Premises studios in Hackney, Husky studios near the elephant and castle and Rogue studios in Bermondsey amongst others all depending on availability.
As we have recently formed we haven't yet got on to the circuit with regular paid gigs but as my experience with previous bands shows after the first few gigs that all seems to take care of itself.
At the moment we have some Video clips of us on YouTube and Facebook taken from Peoples phones which are never great so you may just have to bite the bullet and come down and see if its for you
We do rehearse on Sunday afternoons and try to rehearse every week unless we are playing quite a lot. At the moment until the paid gigs kick off we all chip in for the rehearsals which isn't much but once we are up and running then the gigs will take care of that.
If Sundays are a problem for you or if you are looking for immediate work and pay then this is not the band for you.
If you are anxious, highly strung, needy, quick tempered and having visions of taking over the world please do not apply. But If you do want to play in an exciting band and want to work with us to see where it takes us then it will be a great band to join.
Please let me know if you are interested in making an audition
Any age welcome.
