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.
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
* 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
We look forward to hearing from you!
