Covers Singer for Popular Restaurant Chain in Newcastle

Thursday 21 Dec 2017, 7.00pm

I'm working on behalf of a restaurant in Newcastle who feature live musicians every week. I do not have specific dates yet - I'm making this enquiry to hear from musicians interested in performing and being added to the our roster. 90% of your set should be popular covers and we also allow 2-3 original songs in each set. We are NOT looking for jazz – we want pop/rock, that sort of thing. This is also not background music – you will have a PA and we have attentive audiences. We'd hope to have the chance to work with you on multiple repeat bookings in the future also. We have an excellent PA/Speaker system. Approx 100 guests aged between 20-50. Please apply with a video of you performing live. Currently we're looking for solo singing guitarists/singing pianists (with own keyboard). We look forward to seeing your profile!
