Wanted - singer (with pa would be good), drummer, bass and either keys or 2nd guitar. Playing pubs doing feelgood, lively, can't help but enjoy it and sing along songs. Not the usual tired songs, let's pick something a bit different. Rock songs, from 70s onwards, but if we aren't enjoying playing them then it's unlikely anyone will enjoy hearing them.  You just need to be able to play, have decent gear, enjoy yourself onstage, and not already committed to other bands. I'm 42, but I don't care how old you are as long as your hearts still in it.
