Blindside is looking for high tenors, low basses and Mezzos!

Blindside is a small a cappella group, looking to fill out our lineup.  Founded by blind individuals, Blindside has a big passion for helping others and would love to include more visually impaired members, but the bottom line is, we’re looking for fun, funny, talented people with a desire to make great music together!  We focus on contemporary rock/pop covers, but we’re not going to shy away from the right classics or comedy tunes, as long as they form part of a cohesive set.  Depending on the gig, we’ll  pepper our shows with originals as well.

What we’re looking for:
*A talented high tenor  – we’ll know the right fit when we hear it.  Strong solo chops need to be balanced against the ability to pull back into the chord and harmonize with the whole.
*A resonant low bass (Beatbox skills are valuable, but not essential) – This person needs to have at least a strong low D or lower.  Blend is important, but also the ability to adapt to a wide variety of styles.  A strong solo voice is also needed.

*A solid female singer.  The range isn’t as important as the ability to blend with the boys as well as rock out solos like a boss!

While not essential, arranging ability, basic music theory and previous a cappella experience are definite pluses.  Most important is attitude.  We’re looking for members who have a strong work ethic and are passionate about their craft, but who enjoy singing on street corners or in restaurants for no other reason than it’s fun.

Time commitment:
Blindside rehearses twice a week for two hours each, or once a week for three hours.  Additional or alternate rehearsals can arise before performances based on availability.  Must be flexible for gigging since that will be a focus of the group.  Pay will only come from paid performances.

Interested?  Contact us with the following:
* Basic info about yourself and experience
* Photo
* Audio or video sample of you singing.

Audition and callback day/time:
Auditions will be held in 15 minute slots over two days in late February.  We will contact you to schedule a time.  Additional days may come up so please inquire.

Location: Los Angeles
