Singer Wanted For Rock Band In Atlanta
Posted by Out Of Control - A U2 Tribute
29 days ago
An established local U2 Tribute band, Out of Control, is in search for Bono.
We would prefer someone who lives in Atlanta area, but will seriously consider strong candidates from elsewhere.
We are looking for someone who has:
A great vocal and emotional range (i.e., to incorporate urgency or despair, or whatever the song requires) and can embrace Bono’s showman capacity, and will strive to mimic Bono’s audience interaction, signature moves and stage presence
A timbre close to Bono’s, and can deliver powerful highs (i.e., in “Bad” singing “I’m wide awake” and hitting the high C#, (and avoiding giving the mic to the audience when it counts the most), strong falsetto, and roaring lows, while holding the pitch
mic management and rudimentary guitar skills
In other words, a total package.
Unless you are a U2 fan, this may not be a good fit, as this band is striving for perfection in several ways (delivering particular live versions from different eras – Bono used and uses many rock singing styles). Embracing the songs and their meanings will help to deliver the emotional message.
Some physical resemblance and investment in equipment is necessary.
We are down to earth guys, have jobs and decades of combined experiences in professional or semi-professional capacity in tribute band or recording capacity, for example. Having someone who stays away from (a) rock star attitude, (b) drug abuse, and (c) alcohol abuse problems will be a good fit.
Following the pandemic, this band is expected to travel nationally and if opportunity arises, consider international travel. We played top venues in Atlanta (100% record of getting rehired) and our clients expect nothing short of professionalism.
