Seeking Drummer Cover Band

Postby WestSide80sBand » August 24th, 2019, 9:52pm

Seeking drummer for cover band getting established. Music is 80's new wave and 70s-80's hits, incl. The Cure, The Clash, U2, Psychedelic Furs, etc, with room to expand. Open to any ideas within or loosely tied to that genre, casting a wide net and seeing what sounds good at this point. The idea is to take New Wave/synth/92.9 Jack FM style songs with good bones and translate them to garage/bar rock, ie. making synth parts into guitar parts, beefing up drum and bass grooves. We want to play songs that lots of people know but that no other bands are playing to set ourselves apart.

Currently have solid bass, 2 guitars, and vocals ages 30s-50. Need solid and creative drummer to finish the lineup. Practices roughly once a week on the West Side, usually weeknights, flexible schedule. Keeping it fun and casual. Ultimate goal is to build a 30-40 song set and play out. Very flexible, having fun and jamming above all.

Transportation, drums, and no hard drugs a must. If interested please contact

Short sample of current song list:

Psychedelic Furs - Love My Way
Clash - London Calling
Cure - Just Like Heaven
Cult - She Sells Sanctuary
Duran Duran - Rio
U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday

Below is the full list of songs we have learned/are working on. The process right now is that we either learn and rehearse them to a click track, or I (bass player) will play bass one practice and drums another so we can try to get a feel for the songs both ways. Once we have a full lineup we will be able to cover ground much faster. If you're interested please send an email to the address above and we can communicate that way. Thanks a lot.

psychedelic furs - love my way
the church - under the milky way
the cure - just like heaven
toto - hold the line
the clash - london calling
echo & the bunnymen - the killing moon (not 80s but fits the genre)
the who - eminence front
duran duran - rio
U2 - sunday bloody sunday
joe jackson - steppin' out
eurythmics - here comes the rain again
golden earring - twilight zone
blue oyster cult - burnin for you
flock of seagulls - space age love song
plus more each week as we get ideas.
