Seeking Talent

Positions Open: Bass Player, Keyboard Player

Interested in a gig that goes beyond just jamming; one that will push your talents to the limit; or one that will have you playing in theaters not bars? Want to get paid well for your efforts? Read on...

Actively seeking talented professionals to join in making of the stage show producction of "Man on the Hill" for a potential New England based "tour" this fall. No overnights, no bus, just one or two gigs per week starting in New Hampshire and working outward. Candidates must be avalable two nights a week for rehearsals starting in June and going throughout the summer. 

"Man on the Hill" is a two act fable-opus: a story told through narration and song. Think of it as a mini rock-opera. The music style is American with roots in classic rock, country, jazz, ballads, funk, and novelty. 

If you are interested in doing something different with your music, this promises to be a worthwhile adventure provided you are the type of musician who:

  • Knows the value of rehearsing and practicing and prefers working with others of the same level of commitment.

  • Would find a great sense of fulfillment in being part of something that truly touches the hearts and souls of audience members.

  • Has a strong creative drive and willingness to contribute ideas while at the same time able to take direction.

Here is a promo from the show that was made just prior to Covid-19 shutting it all down last year. There are clips from ten of the sixteen songs in the show:

The band (so far) consists of myself, a drummer and a saxaphone player. Combined we have over 100 years of professional experiences. We have gear, connections, motovation and a have rehersal space in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. 

We have two distinct goals in mind:

  • Creating a high-level professional stage show (we will not be playing in bars and restaurants) that leaves the audience laughing, crying, clapping, and singing along. A show that touches their very soul and has them going home and sharing the experience with their family and friends.

  • Make money doing this. We are not doing this as a fun or casual hobby. We are driven to find success in a limited market. The uniqueness of this show should open doors not usually available to most bands.

If you feel you have the talent and the drive to be part of this project, please reply here.  I look forward to talking to you and to hearing what you have to offer.

Cheers,

John
