Duo wanted for NYE gig Heathcote Hotel!

Post by mcrawfordmusic » 16 Dec 2016, 12:17

Hey guys,

This is a bit of a long shot, but I had a cancellation for our NYE and I'm struggling to find a replacement.

Is anyone on here available? Or know anyone who is?

I'm looking for a mixed covers duo, preferably with no drums (percussion okay). It'll be from 9-12 on NYE and you need to have own PA and lights. Goes without asking, you need to be a professional and have good gear.

I'll negotiate a price via PM. Also please share links and bio.

Hope you guys can help me out!

Matt

Paul doesn't run the pub anymore, but still takes care of most of the band bookings.
However, he never books for NYE as it's generally pretty quiet but the Boss wanted some music at the last minute and our regular 'local' guys pulled out.

Wrenn, looking preferably for Vocals & Guitar, or Vocals and Keys. Has to be a diverse range of covers from 60's-90's sort of time frame.

I've sent a msg out to a niece for her husband. He does weddings pretty exclusively as part of a trio I think, so not sure if a pub is something they'd be interested in. Can't hurt to ask I guess.
