Big Band seeks Guitarist, Lead Trombonist and Bass Trombonist

The Roseville Big Band (www.rosevillebigband.org) is looking for a guitarist. None of their guitar subs are in a position to play regularly with the band, so they hope to expand the call list and perhaps find someone to add to the roster.

They recently lost their lead trombonist. For now, the bass trombonist is trying lead. Roseville Big Band would like to find a replacement bass trombonist to be a full-time section member. Another alternative would be to fill the lead trombone spot.

This is a community-level (i.e., non-paid) jazz band.

The web site above is a good reference of the repertoire we perform, as is this YouTube play list: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2522105169C281D6&feature=view_all
