OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Aly Aleigha Band is committed to creating unique, beautiful music that connects with the people from all walks of life and draws listeners to a deeper encounter with Truth, shedding light on the deepest longings of the human heart.
SPECIFIC MUSICIANS WANTED
Currently we are looking for a new lead acoustic guitarist and also back-up musicians who will be transitioned into full-time members when our existing bandmates are unable to continue with the band. A couple of our wonderful bandmates & friends are considering the pursuit of personal dreams that Aly fully supports, though it will be sad to see them go. This provides you an opportunity to segway in and join the Aly Aleigha Band!
- Lead Guitar (acoustic)
- Upright Bass
- Violin / Viola
(ability to sing and play other instruments is beneficial, but not required)
TYPES OF GIGS
We are touring, so we are looking for committed members who are willing to travel with us for gigs.
In addition to original concerts and music festivals, we also offer music at various Christian events (mostly covers). While we do not fall under the genre of an explicitly Christian band, Aly's Catholic faith is an important element to her identity both as a person and as a musician. Band members are not expected to be Christian but must be respectful and willing to play at such events.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR...
We are looking for talented musicians who are dedicated to the band and our mission. We strive for excellence, believing the gifts we are given are meant to be used to build up others for a purpose, and not kept hidden. Regardless of personal beliefs, all band members must hold our mission in the highest esteem and live it out both on and off stage.
We must live a life of virtue, allowing the message of our music to penetrate our own hearts, recognizing our need for constant personal growth, and allowing that transformation to flow out into our music and interactions with fans/clients.
F . A . C . T .
Our musicians must be FAITHFUL to the band and our mission; AVAILABLE in making gigs / rehearsals a priority; CONTAGIOUS personality and good moral character, good chemistry with the rest of the band and the music itself; and TALENTED/TEACHABLE -- competent musicianship, pursuing excellence and working together humbly as a team to accentuate and grow in our gifts, humble and open to the creative input of other band members.
Aly pays her musicians fairly for gigs. That being said, making unique, substantial music is an adventure! And, as such, it's very important to have a mindset of gratitude when it comes to band finances. We are looking for musicians who are invested in the long-term vision, who recognize the time spent in practice is essential to see results, and who are willing to make sacrifices for the band's long-term goals. Payment will be discussed in detail after audition.
