Benicia Working A Capella Group Still Seeks Tenor Front Man
- If you have any rock experience as a frontman, you are doing yourself
and other professionals a great disservice by not inquiring or
auditioning for us. A great opportunity is being lost! Our ideal
candidate is somewhere between 35 and 55 and not opposed to making
some decent extra income.
The Starry Knights is seeking a tenor or high baritone/lead vocalist
with falsetto. We are a four-man a capella group that has recently
relocated to Benicia, CA.
Although our repertoire features the major doo-wop hits of the
50-60's, our arrangements extend well into hits of the 80's.
We need someone:
* who is willing to learn the East Coast, vocal group harmony style
* who is equally at home singing leads and backups
* who is a quick learner
* who is available at first, to rehearse up to four hours per week
* who has a professional attitude
* who is up to the challenge of being part of a distinctive, energetic
We provide the rehearsal space, Pick up and return to BART, sheet
music, recordings by the original artists, wardrobe, sound system,
engineer, and manager. What we need is to get up and running as
quickly as possible. With our standard 16-song set, this should take
no longer than four weeks. Considering the greatly accelerated
rehearsal schedule, practice outside of rehearsal is extremely important.
Although we have occasionally performed "gratis" for good causes, we
are mainly a professional group and are compensated for our special
brand of entertainment. We are not employers, but rather act as a
collective. The more work we get, the more we get paid. We target and
attract the more affluent "boomer" generation, with our honest
renditions that never fail to put a smile on their faces.
We have scheduled showcase apearances at both The Haight Cole Street
Fair and Ghiardelli Square. Not a bad way to break in a new guy!
The Starry Knights has made appearances at:
* First Street Cafe (featured artist)
* St. Aidan's (dinner theater)
* Marin Art Fair
* San Francisco Cabaret Competition (semi-finalists)
* Palace Of Fine Arts
* Numerous events for "Bread And Roses"
Please e-mail us with any questions. We encourage you to audition. We
are a supportive bunch of guys who want you to succeed. Take the shot
and let us decide if you are a match. Come on guys! Just one good
singer and we are ready to roll. Besides we have some nice showcase
locations set up to get you broken in ...and plenty of time to get you
ready! Don't pass up this chance.
