The Strutts are looking for a keyboard player now that our current player, the fabulous Benji Vincent, has decided to focus on his other projects.
If you are interested in joining the band as our keyboard player or know somebody that might be then please get in touch. We’ll be holding auditions in November.
Not sure if The Strutts is the band for you? Read on to find out about who we are and how we run the band…
- Where are you based? We rehearse in mid Cornwall and gig throughout Cornwall.
- How often do you gig? Around 25 times a year (roughly every fortnight). A mixture of pub gigs, weddings and festival shows, all in Cornwall.
- Why don’t you gig more frequently to earn more money? We all have young families and day jobs, so we prefer not to gig every weekend.
- How often do you rehearse? Roughly every fortnight. Our standard rehearsal is Tuesday evening in Cave studios St Austell.
- What kind of music do you play? Dance floor filling party covers. We especially love playing bang up to date hits. A few of the artists we cover are Bruno Mars, Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pharrell Williams, Justin Timerlake, Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Rihanna, Take That, Britney Spears, The Killers, Kings of Leon, Avril Lavigne, Queen, Dolly Parton, Earth Wind And Fire, Bill Withers….
- What are you looking for in a keyboard player? Good playing and good sounds. Would be a big plus if you are great with synths and samplers, but the band can help you with that if you don’t already have experience with that. Enthusiasm (and maybe even skill) for backing vocals and harmonies would also be a big plus if you have that. Most of all we’re looking for a decent person, who loves music and would enjoy being in this band as much as we do. Boring stuff like reliable transport, equipment and a Cornish address are also needed of course. If you have any doubts about whether you would fit in, please do get in touch- we’re very friendly I promise!
- What do you sound like? If you haven’t seen us live, then check out our promo video on this website, or the live videos on our facebook site. That should give you an idea.
Please do get in touch if you are interested.
