East Mids Bon Jovi long shot

What's Hot
horsehorse Frets: 366
Very very long shot really... I recently joined up with a bon jovi tribute on keys, mainly playing the late 80s rockier tracks, sounding great, good bunch of guys.

Unfortunately for personal reasons the singer is needing to step aside and as you'd expect they are not easy to replace :-(

On the offchance that anybody know anybody who might be good for this, please do let me know.

Also, does anybody know of any east midlands rock pubs which do kareoke? Thinking that might be one possible way to find someone.

Any other creative ideas for finding somebody?

Cheers

    I suggest you put out a WANTED ,DEAD OR ALIVE    alert.........sorry couldn't resist

    Not hard to find a vocalist but very hard if they have to be a bit of a look-alike 
    One could say You're living on a prayer

    Facebook groups as well. The East Midlands musicians one is quite small but that and there are probably ones for Derby ,etc. Maybe even a Bon Jovi Facebook group. 

    I feel the warm, healing, liquid presence of God’s genuine cold-filtered grace.

    Thanks - I guess part of the challenge is that vocalists maybe don't group into communities like other musicians. I was wondering whether there might be some kind of musical theatre scene I could tap into or something like that.

    I think there's some truth in that, although finding a singer with no band experience can be a royal pain on the arse. Am Dram groups often do musicals (again, might be Facebook groups or contact them directly) and approaching singing teachers is another idea ( quick google brought up a bunch around Derby just for example).

    Thanks Eric - singing teachers is a good idea - probably need some proper technique to reach the high notes

    I work with a singer that nails that stuff, but is based in London so would depend on what fees you guys command. He can comfortably hit the top notes (key change in Living On A Prayer etc), is about 30, very confident on guitar and has even supported Bon Jovi with his originals band in Australia. Let me know about fees and if you like I'll put you in contact. Cheers,

    James
