Royal Oak, MI

Full Job Description
We are holding auditions for a second female backing vocalist for the award-winning music ensemble, Rio and the Rockabilly Revival.
Being responsible for learning your vocal harmonies and choreography as necessary. We will provide reference audio including isolated recordings of your part, written charts, and making ourselves available to help with questions or resources as necessary.
Attending rehearsals, typically weekly. We can and do accommodate scheduling needs. Rehearsals would be more important as learning repertoire and choreography, and they may be less frequent as the band is more prepared.
Perform live, high energy, world class concerts at venues (large and small) and in studio with the band, including radio broadcasts and PR opportunities or appointments.
Traveling with the band for performing domestically and internationally (once COVID is less of an issue) for performances.
Share promo via personal social media as well as posts with the band’s official accounts.
Interested candidates will be provided audio, video and charts to prepare for the audition, which will likely be held in person but streaming video accommodations are possible.
This is a band. You’d be working as a contractor in our employ. Rates discussed above are related to flat rates for performances which are between 45-90 minutes on stage, and typically include load in, call times, sound check, etc. There will be additional opportunities for passive income streams that will be discussed if you are hired.
The music we perform is heavily influenced by early Rock and Roll/Rockabilly. This music is an amalgam of genres like Swing, Jump Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz, Old Country, Blues, Gospel and more. The vocalists are required to be able to blend with front woman Rio and other vocalists. We find theater and small vocal ensemble/choir experience is extremely helpful, but we will review your audition more heavily than your credentials. Reading music isn’t necessary but is helpful.
We are a positive, empowering group of people that gladly celebrate your successes, and strive to have a professional, respectful, fun and supportive environment. When possible, we favor affirmative action and conduct rehearsals and performances in a healthy, drug free and rewarding manner.
We look forward to your audition.
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
