We are in need of a bassist willing to practice here in Savannah, Georgia.
We like to maintain a standard of 3 practices a week. It is expected to make at least 2 of those and the occasional "once" a week is excusable with notice. We are firmly established, have 3 tours under our belt and have been about for roughly 9 nears. We play many fests and out of town shows, so a bassist that is able to make a distance commitment would be preferred, especially for touring in the long term. Someone interested in a "fill-in" spot can feel free to get a hold of us as well, to work with us on a short-term and local scope.
We ask that you:
*Be 21+ : Sorry, being underage makes it extremely difficult to tour and play abroad.
*Have Reliable Transportation: We can carpool, but our last few bassists couldn't get with this and in short told us to, "shove it and deal with it". So please, someone with a ride.
*Quite Proficient at Bass: We have a history of bassists that try to play their axe like lead guitar players(wtf). We could really use someone that understands the drum&base relationship. A decent aptitude for music is preferred, but not required.
*Commit To The Distance: For the 'FT' spot, we need someone that can be expected to commit to the touring and long distance shows. We've heard every excuse in the book. Come tour time, we need someone who can take care of business and hit the road. NOONE that isn't willing to communicate to their employer about their tour/show arrangements and LEAVE THE WOMEN(as in spouse) AT HOME. We do not bring them on the road, please don't even ask.
*Dependable, not flakey: We don't need anyone who will attend a few practices, disappear for a week, come back and then miss another week etc. This has been a problem for us, please be dependable and communicable.
*Be Sober For A Show: No pregaming before we hit the stage, not a bowl, no beers etc. This has been a problem before. After, is totally fair game.
*Have a stage-ready rig and own equipment: obvious.
