Doo-Wop Style Singer
About the job
Looking for a doo-wop style singer for golden oldies performances either as a solo singer or as part of a full group or band. Different opportunities are available at this time. This will not be a traditional full-time or part-time job, and definitely not something you can consider a career and make a living from.
However, there is the potential for a lot of upcoming bookings and the opportunity to make some decent extra money while having some fun singing and entertaining crowds. Venues may include nursing homes, senior communities, theaters, car shows, casinos, private parties, restaurants, lounges, reception halls, or private residences. All ages, gender, may apply. We are also looking for DJ's or DJ/ singer combos.
When applying, please include biography, photos, previous work and experience related to this opportunity, and (if available) MP3's or links to audio or video samples. Thank you.
