ABOUT

Dr Soul and the Groovy Humans are looking for a new male vocalist. Band makeup is bass, drums, guitar, keys, female singer, trumpet, tenor sax, baritone sax for our soul covers band

Aim is to gig 1-2 a month. We want to make a little money, but more than that it is for the joy of playing great music, well. If you want to make a living off this, this isn't for you. If you love a mixture of old school soul, mixed with some modern artists, leaving you with a bluesy after taste, then we need you!

We need a strong vocalist who can handle some of the greatest soul songs of all time, sung by some of the greatest singers. Otis Redding, Wilson Picket, Jackie Wilson, Stevie Wonder, along with modern artists like Van Morrison, Jack Savoretti, Teskey Brothers, The Dip, Marcus King Band

Currently we have around 35 tracks, including:

Etta James - At Last
Etta James - I'd Rather Go Blind
Dusty Springfield - Spooky
Aretha Franklin - Don't Play That Song (You Lied), Think, Respect, Natural woman
The Commitments ~ Mustang Sally, Chain of fools
Otis Redding - Down in the Valley
Adele - Make You Feel My Love
Gladys Knight and the pips - Midnight train to Georgia
Jack Savoretti - Back Where I Belong
Jon Allen - Sweet Defeat
Otis Redding - Hard to handle
Tina Turner - Proud Mary
The Dip - O.B Jebediah
The Teskey Brothers - Pain and misery
Commodores - Easy
Stevie wonder - Higher ground
Blues Brothers - She caught the Katy


We rehearse In Joondalup, NOR, or Hen House in Osbourne park.

We have gigs waiting for us. Just need to get the right singer who can handle big songs and also provide backing vocals when our other singer takes lead.

Please get in touch for more info, either by messaging me on 0449551887 or richhilditch@hotmail.com

Influences

The aspirational set list above answers this! Too many to mention. Can't go wrong with anything that sounds like it's off the Stax label.
But for an idea think Aretha, Otis, Wilson, Blues brothers, Commitments, Adele, Etta James, Gladys Knight, Teskey brothers, Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Marcus King band, The Dip

Members Of Band

Drums, rhythm/lead guitar, female vocals, keys/hammond, alto/tenor sax, bass, trumpet, baritone sax

EQUIPMENT

All have own equipment and cars etc. We have all been in various bands for years and played a fair few hundred gigs between us. We rehearse north of the river in Joondalup rehearsal studios on a thursday night after work.
