Producer/Composer/Sound Engineer looking to audition very experienced musicians in the Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire areas for a 'large band' (circa 20) to go live on stage within 3 months or less.

15 - 20 'original' alternative Rock, Pop, EDM, Ballad, Singer-songwriter type genre songs are to be performed on stage from this composer. Some similarities include Muse, Queen, ELO, Daft Punk and many others. Nothing too heavy.

This project success is wholly dependent on how quickly the musicians can attend auditions or whether the 'core' band members can be acquired.

The basic concept is that the 'revenue generated' from the bands performance/gig ticket sales shall fund all of the 20 musicians so to mitigate against risk, you should definitely not solely rely on this project alone and have other projects on the go in parallel. This shall initially protect you up until the band starts earning some decent revenue.

There are zero guarantees that this project will take off successfully but if it does, you're in at exactly the right time!!! If you're not in, you can't win... basically. You must decide.

Contracts will be signed for copyright reasons only. You will not be tied in exclusively to this project only, unless in time this project becomes highly successful, then contracts shall be re-written to accommodate any changes etc... However that's in the long-term.

Gigs are to be performed in those 3 counties mentioned above initially and if things go well then diversify nationally in the UK.

Each rehearsal shall last approx. 4 hours & 5 new original songs per rehearsal shall be performed and learnt well.

After rehearsal #1 (5 songs learnt - week #1) and rehearsal #2 (10 songs learnt - week #2), the band shall tout for support acts. After rehearsal #3 (15 songs learnt - week #3) band shall perform as both a support & main act until eventually shall become a main act only.

All musicians must have their own instruments, amplifiers, EFX pedals etc.. in excellent working condition and of a high professional standard. You will have to take any necessary equipment to the auditions in order to perform your instrument.

As this is a serious & challenging professional type music project with an aggressive timeline to reduce costs, only musicians of a high virtuoso and excellent team player attributes need apply.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions shall be every Mon-Fri (7PM to 10:30PM) or Sat-Sun (10:30AM to 8PM) until all 20 band members are hired. The quicker the better this project can get going.
