Happy 4th Everyone!

Vocalists, Percussionists, Guitar players, Bass players, Violinists, Electronic music DJs and a variety of Performing Artists must read this.
The project will kick off with a live show at the 1st annual NW ComicFest MusicFest at the Salem, OR Convention Center on Saturday August 15th 2015
Following this show, the band will continue writing original music to record and release an album by the end of the year.
Requirements for all band member candidates:
- Well experienced with their instrument on all levels performing live and recording.
- Have own professional gear to perform.
- Open to a unique stage presence.

For this particular upcoming event, the band will perform a few songs from Ivan’s former bands Healer album “Awakening” and White Zombie album “La Sexorcisto” adding a new dimension to the material to make it unique and fun. Original material may be written for the gig if time permits. Songwriting credit for all original material that is created in the rehearsal studio will be shared equally with each musician writing the material.
Musical Influences for this project include a wide range:

If you think this is the project for you or anyone you know, please visit ivandeprume.com/contact and send Ivan the message from there. Please include biography, discography, links to your music, videos, photos and perhaps a little description of what makes you unique from the others.
Ivan is also set up for virtual sessions so musicians who have their own personal recording studio to transfer files back and forth is a plus!
We will continue accepting submissions until otherwise posted.
