Other People's Hits is a brand new band- recruiting members to join me to provide an entertain set and eventually full night of music to entertain the crowd and ourselves.
We have not yet gigged- but have got to first base, with singer, bass and two rhythm/lead guitars.
This is chance to get in at the start of something.
Aim would be to rehearse once per week together, with about an 8 to10 week period to get a setlist suitable for public performance. Maybe not the ultimate preferred setlist, but to get some winning tunes in place.
I am in Pennant Hills- rehearsal studios in Castle Hill/Northern Beaches/ anywhere that suits us.
June/July= find like-minded talented enthusiasts.
Aug/Sept/Oct= develop setlist based on skills, vocal sound and interests.
Nov onward= winning gigs, and building on our sound.
