We are excited to announce that we’re looking musicians to join our flock!
Auditions for Guitar and Banjo:
When: Wednesday, March 14, 7:30 pm.
Where: Ballare Teatro. 4259 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis.
What? The Wild Goose Chase Cloggers are looking for a guitar player and a banjo player familiar with traditional old-time music. We want you to be able to provide a high energy, foot stomping, heart-racing, solidly rhythmic foundation that, combined with a driving fiddle and thumping bass, will feed and support 12 hungry dancers!
What to expect: Our audition process is relatively informal. It’s a chance for us to meet you, as well as to get a feel for how you might fit with us as a musician and as a member of our group.
Come prepared to play some tunes with our fiddler and bassist. They will play some straight forward and fairly common old-time tunes and you will play along. They’ll go through the tunes slowly a couple of times to settle on chords and then will take it at dance tempo – often between 125-135 bpm . We’ll also have you join in for a tune or two while our dancers clog or while our cloggers dance (we will decide that later).
Afterwards, we’ll ask you a few questions, you can ask us some questions, and you’ll be on your way.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us email@example.com.
