Greetings to all Ansteorran Bard types (and other foreign spies and lurkers, here). This post is basically OT Scadian-wise, however, some may be interested... so I figured I had to use all resources at my disposal, to spread the word, hopefully without actually being a total Spamapotamus. 

It you ever watched the Film, Shakespeare in Love, then you are probably familiar with this phrase... "I don't know... It's a mystery..."
So here's the Spam... I mean the Scoop... err... the Ad... the information. ( :: smiles :: )

ITZA Mystery... (working name for the band)
NEW (mundane-ish) PROJECT:
I am in the process now (as of November 2009) of putting together a "niche genre band" leaning towards a Piratey-Renaissance-Rock style and Band Image, similar to Blackmore’s Night.

If you are not familiar with Blackmores Night, then follow this link to some You Tube Vids:

Objectives are to develop and record our own original music, AND SELL
IT, and also develop selected "cover music" for Live Performance at
Pirate Festivals, Renaissance Fairs, and other selected venues, (perhaps even some SCA Wars), etc.
YEP! We are looking to GET PAID.

This is NOT a "bar band" in the
traditional sense of the word. "The Show" (approximately 90 minutes),
is under development, and will probably consist of about 40% original
material and 60% "covers", arranged and flavored to suit the "Band

It is pretty certain that both Acoustic versions and Plugged In versions of the MUSIC will be developed (where practical and applicable)... for Live performance purposes.

"WE" are seeking out persons who play all sorts of
instruments, and or sing. Currently have lined up, a female lead vocal,
a lead guitar, rhythm/bass (utility player), a keyboard player...

looking for additional players to fill in the holes: Percussion
(traditional hand drums and/or a full kit), pipes, flutes, fiddle,
mandolin, and any other exotic strange weird instruments as well as
additional singers for leads/back-ups (male/female). And yes, we may only "need you" for Studio Recorded Versions of Original Music, with no further commitment on your part, so... let us know what ya play/sing and we can determine a participation level.

As for permanent players...
1) Please be 21 years of age or older...
2) Possess something beyond "beginner" playing skills... and have good quality stage gear.
3) You must also have TIME available, for rehearsals and at home practice time.
4) as well as having reliable transportation (and gas money)...
5) AND, you WILL have to "dress the part" for Live Performances.

space is located in North Texas, near Gainesville, IN THE BOONIES.
Interested parties from OKC and the hinterlands north of me... as well as ... UNT (Denton) or the DFW Metro and surrounding areas,
would have to "travel" for scheduled group rehearsals, on a weekly
basis. Group Sessions will be held on a Saturday or a Sunday (or
sometimes both).

Please make contact HERE, if you are interested or have any further questions...

If you  wish...  YOU have permission to  pass this (email) information along to other persons who may be interested, but arrrrgh! not on this Bards list.
