Altos: Tired of choirs? Time to rock n roll!
- We're STILL looking! We know that tenors are rare as hen's
teeth, but altos? Ladies...where are you? Tired of choirs? Time to
rock n roll!
"Tuckermans at 9", a seven-voice, mixed, contemporary a
cappella group (think a male/female "Rockapella") has lost its
Alto 2. We're grown-ups with mortgages and lives but semi-pro,
working on average once a month, rehearsing weekly year
round. We don't pay much, but WE DO PAY.
Writing or arranging skills helpful but not required. Rep is strictly
pop, 40s to the present but mostly 60s to the present, including
our own arrangements (check out tuckermansat9.com). We are
NOT a classical chamber group and we do NOT sing "Christian"
or "praise" music. We do, however, rock out pretty good, with tight
harmonies on-mic and vocal percussion (yummy ballads, too!),
and have an absolute blast doing it.
Maybe you did the a cappella thing in college and REALLY miss
it. Maybe you've done classical or barbershop and want to try
something new (barbershoppers are especially encouraged, as
emphasis on tight harmony and stage presence is key). If you
can make a serious commitment... if you can read music and
learn and memorize it both in- and outside of rehearsal... if you
can blend well with a straight tone when you're a background
singer but sell it when it's a solo (no wobbling vibrato divas,
please!)... please contact Mark: voicegod@....
