Drummer and Lead Guitarist wanted for Alternative Rock Band (Dublin)
Date Listed 05/12/2017
I just started a new original alternative rock band. I’m the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and songwriter. I already have a very experienced bassist so far, so I’m just seeking an experienced drummer and lead guitarist to complete the line-up. I play a couple of instruments (i.e. guitar, vocals, drums, bass, piano) myself, but I will be the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and songwriter in this new band.
We’re based in Dublin.
The bassist and I separately have been around the block in the music/band world, so I'm looking for a serious, committed, experienced, talented and creative people to join the band. Recording, getting signed, touring etc. is the aim.
Previously I was the lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter in an original alternative rock band called Red Temple. I was the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and songwriter. This band is finished now, but we’ve played popular festivals and venues e.g. Whelan’s, Workman's Cub, Sweeney's, the Spirit Store, Vantastival.
