We are looking for lead and backup FEMALE singers to learn leads and harmonies for songs from the 80’s. Some people do not realize, but a singer for 80’s music needs to have several things. # 1 Passion, (A DESIRE TO NOT ONLY SING A SONG, BUT THE ABILITY AND DRIVE TO MAKE IT GREAT)! # 2 knowledge, (KNOWLEDGE OF NOT JUST A SONGS EXISTENCE, BUT TO KNOW WHAT THE SINGER WAS SINGING ABOUT! THE 80’S WAS NOT A DECADE IN TIME IT WAS A MOVEMENT IN HISTORY WHEN IT CAME TO MUSIC)! # 3 Willing to take direction and criticism. (If stopped during rehearsal to fix a part in a song that does not sound right, you must be willing to stop, fix the part and repeat until it works.) # 4 You must have strong vocals. (Strong vocals are a must. Don’t come in thinking you are a pop star who sings high vocals and uses runs as part of the song. This is not and WILL NOT be the place for that.) # 5 MUST NOT BE A SMOKER. If you are a STRONG FEMALE vocalist/singer, you can try out for a lead female singer. Keep in mind, we are a group. There are no solo stars. When you get done doing a lead, you go back to backup harmonies/vocals. There is a catch to this. If you come in as a keyboardist and are a female singer (who can 100% sing the lead parts and play keys while singing, you will only have to do backups that the entire band participates in or in a duet. This means you will get PR as both a lead and backup vocalist OR as a lead and a musician. If you are already with a group, this is not for you. If you have obligations such as children or school this is not for you. If you have a work schedule that will not allow you to practice on weekends and perform at night once you are trained then this is not for you. If you do not know a song, we will teach you. Your vocal ability will let us know once we compare your vocals and the vocals of a song. You must learn not just the Artist song but be willing to learn who they are in which we will help you. The more someone understands an artist, the better they can give justice to singing that person’s song. You will not find anything like this anywhere. You are on the ground level. This is a local opportunity looking to go on the road.
Fort Collins is our home location. We have worked with singers and musicians throughout the country. We have played in many cities and towns over the last several years, but Some of our sponsors are here in Fort Collins. With that being said, we would like you as part of our local community to come and tryout. If chosen you will practice and rehearse here. We will play local shows here. When the show has been successful in Colorado, we will start booking out of state road shows. WE GET PAID TO PLAY. WE DO NOT GET PAID TO LEARN OR REHEARSE.
Travel to a show outside of Fort Collins will be at the shows expense. This means we will get you there once you have shown up at our Fort Collins departure location. This means departures to Denver, the springs, pueblo, Trinidad, Grand junction, Vail, etc. This is not like American Idol or anything remotely close.
