ONITC wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year, lets make it better than the one before!
We’d like to let everyone know we found our new bass player, Melanie J. She comes from an amazing musical background, and brings with her some awesome playing talents to our band. Not only that, but her husband Barry is a fantastic keyboard player and will be joining us on selected songs when we play live. Two for one! Who can’t get down with that? We count ourselves very fortunate to have found both Mel and Barry, and we are looking forward to continuing on with them as part of the band.
We are currently seeking an experienced BASS player, as our current one will be leaving us soon. Our set list is a combination of RJD solo material from his first three solo albums and RJD-era Black Sabbath.
The band was formed in late 2016, and is made up of experienced San Diego-based musicians. We have *free* practice space at a convenient location near major highways. We have a working set list of 20 songs and have been playing out semi-regularly. This is a side project for some of us; most of the band members have other projects going on besides this one, so its no problem if you are in another band. We are looking for someone to play the parts as close to the original versions as possible.
We all have and use pro-gear, have our own reliable transportation and day jobs, and we would want the same from any potential new addition to our band. We rehearse about every two weeks, and plan to gig as much as our individual schedules allow. None of us have substance abuse issues, and we are generally not 420 friendly (what you do at home is your own business). That being said, we are all very laid back and there are no attitudes or egos with us.
- When responding, **please provide a link to a recent live performance and/or a recent video or audio sample file**. Without this we have nothing to go off of, and we wont be able to answer your email. We gotta hear what you'll potentially be bringing to the table.
- Also, give us something to get to know you by - a link to your Facebook page, YouTube page, etc. Or provide a detailed description of your history/bio.
- To make things easier, all communications will be done over email until we set up auditions. No phone calls or texts.

We are currently seeking a keyboard player to give our band the one last thing its missing. We focus mostly on 1983-1985 RJD solo material, with some RJD-era Black Sabbath songs in the set as well. We have free practice space in Santee, CA, at a convenient location near major highways. All of us have pro-gear, transportation and day jobs. This is a side project for us. Most of the guys have other projects going on besides this one, so its no problem if you have another band or don't have time for a full commitment. We rehearse every two weeks, and plan to gig once a month or so, depending on our schedules and opportunities.
If you are familiar with the material I've mentioned, you know that most of the parts aren't very hard nor do they last for the entire length of the songs. As such, we welcome inquiries from all levels of ability, and will be willing to work with you on a case-by-case basis if you're not exactly the best player out there. Backup vocals are nice and would add to the package, but are not necessary. NOTE: We will try to tailor the set to have as many keyboard-needed songs as possible, but there's gonna be some down time for you as not every song has keys. So again, low pressure.
We're doing this for fun, so we're not going be dressing up or anything like that for shows; our tribute is in our attempt to replicate the songs as close to the originals as possible. We are not in it for money, and we do not and will not 'pay to play'. You'll never be expected to sell tickets before a gig. If this sounds good to you, shoot us an email expressing your interest, as well as a link to you playing something from the RJD catalog, or an audio file attachment playing the same.
Thanks for coming to check us out. We got started around December of 2016, just as a side project for fun - its led to some good times and great shows so far. We are available for gigs far and near, and for fill-in opportunities when you need to round out a night of tribute bands.
