Forming an All-Mom Rock/Pop Band in Boston
posted at 11/9/2012 4:30 PM EST
We already have our core. Now we need a lead guitarist and bassist. We consist of a drummer (and mother of twins), a lead singer, and a keyboardist (also mothers). We live in the nearby Boston suburbs, range from 30's to 40's, and we have a plan to get back into our passion for music as time and lifestyle allow! In every other guise, we are typical suburban mothers. Perhaps you are, too.
We hope to gig maybe 1-2 times a month at places like fall/spring local festivals, 5K/10K road races (especially those for women), family-friendly places, etc. Practice 1/x week or possibly 2/x as time allows.
We have already been rehearsing songs from 1970s to the present--fun, upbeat rock and pop music that people want to hear. Songs like "Heaven is a Place on Earth" by Belinda Carlisle to "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele to "Old Time Rock & Roll" by Bob Seger. We are not trying to be campy or ironic--perhaps people will even forget that we're an all-mom cover band, once they hear what we are capable of.
There's a similar group of women in Detroit: http://mydols.com/
