A new North Devon band is seeking a bass player to join them for touring at home and abroad.The four local musicians are searching for a fifth member who will have the time to commit to what could be a busy schedule.Mel Bushell, from Bideford, said the project was very new but had already "gone through the roof."He said they all had a fair amount of experience in the industry, especially drummer Ian, who had worked with some big names and, it seems, secured gigs performing overseas."It's happening very fast," he added.The band hopes to begin gigging in the next week or two, with the provisional name of "Rebirth" the most popular, since for many of them it is a new start."This is a really good opportunity for someone who can give us the commitment," said Mel."People will have to be very serious about playing, almost to the point where a normal job would get in the way - and they'll need a passport!"The band will be playing a mix of covers but also increasingly their own material. Bass players who are tempted should call 07799 054173.
