Musicians Needed for Band Collab - Beatles With a Twist

Musicians Needed for Band Collab - Beatles With a Twist

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

Hi, I'm looking to form a Beatles cover band, but with a unique twist! I'm looking to collaborate with confident, like-minded musicians on brand new arrangements of those classic songs - soul / big band / reggae - the possibilities are endless!

Since we are in lockdown, it could be the perfect time to work on our individual ideas / parts online and get a head start before we are able to meet in person. Obviously that can be done UK wide, but the North West will probably be where we rehearse face to face, so please bear that in mind.

Other than adding vocal(s), bass, keys and guitar to the foundation of the band, I'm completely open to working with any other musicians from brass to strings to tuned percussion; the most important thing is that you bring your own ideas for arrangements (I'm a drummer, so my melodic input would be limited!) I can send a Spotify playlist of existing covers to inspire you.

Payment may not be guaranteed at any stage, so you'll have to be a Beatle nut with some spare time and a lot of passion to take this on, but if we can make it work then there are performance opportunities at regular Beatles events all over Europe, the USA and South America - I have contacts at them all and have a good idea of what works and what doesn't (these people are die hard fans, not a Christmas party crowd, so they enjoy something different to the boots and suits lookalikes). There's also an instant international audience online, who may then be interested in hearing any original music you have - bonus!

There is no age limit, but you must be a competent, confident musician with a lot of ideas!

Please get in touch if this sounds of interest. Thanks!
