Our established, working, 11-piece band seeks a talented, professional female lead vocalist to join our group. You will be joining 5 horns, bass, drums, guitar, keyboards and a male lead vocalist.

Our book includes charts from Tower of Power, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Average White Band, James Brown, Chicago, Chaka Kahn, Commitments and many others. We anticipate this new member to provide input for building our book.

Qualifications:

1. Proficiency in covering our genres of music: Funk, Soul, R&B, Rock and Jazz. Our book spans the spectrum of horn bands from the 50's to present day.
2. Solid musical/singing skills and have endurance for gigs that can approach 4 hours in length.
3. Sight read music (yes, we operate from charts) or a willingness to learn and embody the tunes.
4. Professional quality equipment. A decent microphone and cable.
5. Professional, dedicated, participatory and fun attitude.
6. Experience in working in a small jazz combo as required for wedding cocktail hours.
7. Stage skills that captivate and enthrall an audience. An ability to work enthusiastically with our Male Lead Vocalist on stage, rehearsals and sectionals.
8. Willingness to be a catalyst to make our band the best in the Denver Metro area.

Nice to have:

1. Composition and arranging skills
2. Percussion skills

Commit to:

1. Practice 2 times per month.
2. Vocal sectionals as required
3. 2 to 4 gigs per month

We know you have a real life and contingencies arise, but if you cannot commit to the aforementioned, and always have an excuse why you cannot come to practices and gigs, please do not inquire. The Lead Female Vocalist is an integral part of our group and without you, we cannot be the best, most amazing band in the Denver Metro Area.

If you are interested, please respond to this ad. We will be happy to provide you with set lists and audio/video examples of our efforts on receipt of your inquiry. In your response, please include examples of your musical efforts and a summary of your experience.

Thanks for taking a look at this great opportunity. It's an awesome group. We look forward to hearing from you.
