Keyboards Wanted!

 



Vinyl Rockit, one of Detroit's fastest up and coming Party Cover Bands, is emerging from their Covid-19 hibernation.

We are a 7 man outfit with 5 on stage and 2 off, that includes a full PA and soundman as well as a fully choreographed light show and tech. We play mostly classic rock and pop hits intended to fill the dance floor and keep the party going with a "Dancing Good Time". We typically play at a cadence of 1 gig per month and almost always Saturday night.

We will be saying goodbye to Andy, our keyboard player, this fall due to a relocation. This will trigger a search for someone to fill his position. He plays keys in all songs, including songs without key parts where he simulates a second guitar. He has a strong knack for dialing in the perfect tone to replicate the original recording. He sings backup in almost every song and even sings lead on a fan favorite... Unbelievable by EMF. We will miss him and all that he brings.

Here is your opportunity to help take Vinyl Rockit to the next level. If you are a professional keyboard player looking for a project and not just a hired gun looking for gigs, we'd like to hear from you. We have an established set list but may be open to suggestions if you bring the fire. If you have some chops on guitar, this is a plus. If you have a great set of pipes, a big plus! 

This is an equal opportunity for all. Age, race and gender can only bring diversity so bring it! The key operative here is professional. Once we are dialed in, we typically do not rehearse. We know our parts, we are prompt and we give it our all. With 7 people in this project, we must be on top of our game.

We have yet to set a timeframe for open auditions but want to get the word out now. If you are interested, get in touch (Leon 313-529-4466 or booking@vinylrockit.com). If you know someone who may be interested, send them this link.

If you'd like to get a better feel for what Vinyl Rockit is all about, there are social media links at the top of this site and other blog posts like this one that show great examples. If you'd like to get a jump on learning/rehearsing a few tune to audition with, give these a go:

Jump (with optional 1984 intro) - Van Halen
Let's Go Crazy - Prince & The Revolution
(It Ain't Nothin' But A) House Party - The J. Geils Band
Feelin' Alright - Joe Cocker
Uprising - Muse
Middle of the Road - The Pretenders
Same Old Song and Dance - Aerosmith

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you into our Dancing Good Time!
