Bass Player Wanted - Classic Rock - Blackburn

5 piece classic rock band requires a bass player.

Must have own gear and transport, be experienced and committed to learning the set reasonably quickly (we don't like to practice unless we have to!). We are aiming to change some of the songs we do but Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy and The Cult are the backbone of the set.

We are based in the Blackburn area and are all in our 50s so this would probably suit a mature individual.

Have a look at our set list and if you're interested please send a message. Thanks

Didn't you have a new one when you played at The Arden a couple of weeks ago?

We did, unfortunately Steve's work commitments have meant that he's too busy to be in the band-it's a shame but that's life.

One of the requirements was a car.

Dont get your point Hadge.
You simply point your car towards Blackburn and go there.
Its not the other side of the world.

Depends if he lives in Bacup...... that is pretty much the end (other side) of the world....

So you want a bass player but also a mature individual?

There's an oxymoron if ever I heard one.
