Drummer wanted to join Guitar and Keyboard player in starting up a new project. There is no set list in place at the moment as we are starting from scratch but it will likely consist of tunes carefully selected from the last 60 years of pop and rock songs that require keyboards. My collaborator has informed me that there is a Singer and Bass player lined up at this present moment but nothing is set in stone. Must be of competent standard but most importantly a good timekeeper. Own Gear and Transport is an absolute necessity. This will be a part time gig doing no more than 2 gigs a month (3 tops). If the ad peaks your interest give me a ring on 07896 918530 or email me

Experienced Drummer wanted. We are a 4 piece band of reasonable musicians, We gig 1 or 2 times a month at favored venues. We play Rock, Pop and Blues covers and like to keep the set list fresh by adding songs etc by mutual agreement. We play because we enjoy it! We like to have plenty of light and shade in our playing. Players based in Newcastle (Guitar), Crook (Bass) and Acklam (Guitar/Singer) so someone around that area would be perfect.
